We have only played a couple games so far this season, but I feel we have made some great progress since we first got back together a few weeks ago. We kept most of our team together and have added some pretty impressive players to the line up.
Last weekend we faced the Chelmsford Chieftains in a re-match of last year’s play-off final and came away 5-3 winners in a game I felt we outplayed them for most of. Tonight we are facing the London Raiders and they have some new faces to watch out for. All teams are expecting big things from themselves this early in the season and that’s why it’s crucial we don’t take anyone for granted and bring our best game each night. This past week in training we have continued to work on our systems and overall fitness.
Tonight we look to put those in place when we face the Raiders and make sure we are all pulling together for the two points. It’s been great to see how the new guys have settled in. Our locker room is as tight as ever, have welcomed the new guys in and have done a wonderful job showing them what’s expected of them when they ice for our club. I’m really excited to see where this team goes and if they continue to get better each training session and game, we will have some fun times ahead. JC
