Fylde (in the top drawer)….

The coaches had asked for a response to last weekend’s somewhat lacklustre performance against Bishop’s Stortford. And boy, did they get one. Ten tries, the opposition nilled. It’s hard to see what else the coaches could have expected. There will doubtless be some sceptics who will try to argue that the result is a somewhat…

Training ground update…and some cautious optimism

So, Blaydon on Saturday then. Rail ticket booked. Journey planned. And a trip to the training ground yesterday evening just to get a feel for how the squad is shaping up prior to their the long journey up north later today. Pretty well by all accounts.
