Hello from an unseasonably warm England .
Yesterday we played our second lot of matches against the county teams of staffordshire. The girls were well looked after with a local sponsor paying for court hire and for the food on offer. Thank you very much ! The girls were also given a very surprising gift of a very prestigious wedgewood mug which are made in the local area. A very special thanks to Julie , Ursula, and all the team at staffordshire netball who have spoilt us and have been amazing hosts. Now to the netball.... The young third team played well but were just pipped by the locals who played very well to win. Our firsts and seconds are really starting to gell well in their teams, with some great attacking combinations and impressive intercepts in defence, leading to two victories ! The local paper was also in to take some press photos and will be online at the staffordshire sentinel . We are off to Birmingham today for some much needed retail therapy before this afternoons games against our next hosts.
