Head Coach Smith
We are fast approaching the new season. It is going to be a very unusual season in terms of who we are playing.
It is good that we are playing our local rivals Staffordshire Surge as a chance to test ourselves against a very good Division 2 team. We also go up against Division 1 sides Leicester Falcons and Shropshire Revolution, as well as Premier Teams Sandwell Steelers and former British Champions Tamworth Phoenix.
Looking at the make up of our Mercia Group, it looks like the odds are very much stacked against us.
Myself and the Coaching Staff are looking at this as an ideal opportunity to work with the Team and see what we can produce against tough opponents. The players are excited about this and are working hard.
I have been impressed with the attitude and aptitude of the players and coaches. It is clear that I have communicated exactly what I want and how we will achieve it. As a group we are focused on our goal of self improvement and quality football.
While we may be mainly rookies, they are a talented bunch who want to learn.
We are working hard on and off the field to improve and to use this season as a challenge to get ready for 2022. I know we should be a Division 1 side. It is up to us as a Team to get there. We need to use this season as a positive experience where we can test ourselves against quality teams and see what we need to work on.
The next few sessions are going to be challenging, to get us ready for 4 July were we face Premier Team Sandwell Steelers.
Bring it on
