Thursday - boys had 3 games today and the sun was out once again. they lost 4-0 to a very good English team but the game was closer than the score indicates. we have changed to a new system and it will take some time. the second game saw their first victory in a long time as they beat another English team 3-1. it was a very physical game with red cards going to the other team but not to mine. the 3rd saw the best game of the day as the boys were behind 3-0 at the half but rallied to lose 3-2 and dominate the second half. today needs to bring us 2 wins so we can advance and they are pretty focused right now. all looks good. the girls were training in the morning, watching the boys in the afternoon and then joined the boys 'a' team with several other teams in a 5 a side tournament. kids are doing well and enjoying each day more than the previous.
