Junior players and supporters from both Goalball clubs met on Sunday 25th March at City College Norwich. This was the inaugural meetingof the Junior Teams of Cambridge Dons and the Norfolk Hares. The players enjoyed meeting each other and having the chance to share experiences and receive some coaching advice from Sarah and Warren at the session. Parents and supporters enjoyed tea and biscuits and then the whole morning was “topped off” with pizza and cake. The Norfolk Hares also had the chance to debut their new kit purchased with money from the Aviva Community Fund and printed by Dandis from Norfolk.
Feedback from both clubs was how positive the whole session was and the opportunity to get together was something we must repeat soon.
Thanks to Steve from the4hrphotographer for the excellent photographs and his time.
