The Welsh NTL side have returned from their opening tournament with positive reflections on their first games of the season. The tournament itself provided plenty of matches for the girls to experience playing at NTL level, and every player selected had equal court time. High Performance Coach Melissa Hyndman used this to assess the Junior Dragons playing skills and analyse the players for future matches.
In some respects it was a first time for both the management and team, as the girls had not worked directly with Hyndman before. Despite getting off to a nervous start, they soon found their feet and all the players improved on their performances throughout the day.
A big congratulations goes to Bethan Dyke who was chosen to Captain the team for the season, and also Leanne Thomas who will be Vice Captain respectively.
The following are the results from the matches played;
a) V Manchester Thunder Youth lost 5 – 21
b) V Mavericks Youth lost 5 – 12
c) V Team Bath win 20 – 14
d) V Team South Youth lost 10 – 16
e) V Northumbria win 16 – 15
f) V Surrey Storm Youth lost 11 – 19
g) V West Midland Warriors lost 11 – 15
h) V L’boro Lightening lost 16 – 17
i) V Yorkshire Jets win 18 -14
