Women’s Manager Lee Atkinson says he is excited to get the season started.

“Pre-season has started really well for us,” he commented.

“We entered two teams into a tournament, one of which got to the semi-final and the other to the final. We reached the semi-final of another tournament too were very unfortunate to lose on penalties.

“We’ve seen a lot of positives already. We played teams from higher divisions, so it was a really good test. It was good to see what our players could do.

“There will be a lot of hard work in the coming weeks to get ready for the start of the season.

“We probably need to recruit a few more players, so the trials will be really important, and I would encourage anyone who is interested to sign up for them.”
