Assistant Director of Coaching, Martin Smith, who attended the tournament with the U17G Elite, had this to say about the event: “It was great to get the season underway and play in the Twin City pre-season tournament. The coaches and players were excited to be back in action after the summer and we all enjoyed alot of success on the fields. It was good for the coaches to have a look at new players, try different systems and certainly helped us with our pre-season preparations. The players had the chance to work on their match fitness and I was really pleased at how our teams performed and the style of play we incorporated this past weekend”.
