National Cadet League – Day One

report by Ed Lynn 

National Cadet League for Colebridge – Day 1

A tough day for the new boys today. With Sophie Rinnhoffer and Nathaniel Saunders moving on to other things, Cyrus Harris (furthest right) led the charge for our A team. They won all but one, although realistically will not win this year as Wood Green and Woodfield have entered decent teams. Our B team did better than I anticipated and our C team found it tough. With a couple of 9 year olds and a few 10 year olds in our 12 strong squad (not all shown), they will gain valuable experience and will have every opportunity to improve over the next 4/5 years in this event so this year is not all about winning but accelerating the development of an even younger crop.

More news to follow when I’m free from feeling shattered.

Well done everyone.
