As said last night that I would update after my first training with the team, well here it is.
I was hugely impressed to say the least. The team has a good mixture of veteran talent and some young speedy Gonzales types to which an old coot like me has to shout “wait the eff up!”
Though the passing was a bit all over the place and we were punished with 40 odd push ups (thanks coach) and skating I was pleased that the pace never really dropped and for the fact that bristol’s ice surface is smaller than Basingstoke.
My legs do ache a bit but that’s ok. I thoroughly enjoyed it and I’m already looking forward to more.
