First 'Team England' elite squad training camp

With great weather, excellent training facilities and a packed training schedule what better way to get ‘Team England’s’ 2014 Euro’s campaign started.

The competitive nature of the players and teams came to the fore during the squad games, even after numerous fitness tests and various skill sessions, the desire to win was evident.

The dreaded beeps of the Yoyo test didn’t disappoint on the pain front.  It was great to see players from all squads cheering on their team mates with the saying ‘just one more’ ringing around the grounds. Young and not so old came head-to-head in the women’s Yoyo when Olivia Jones (U18’s) and Kate Hyde from the (W27’s) pushed themselves to be the last ladies standing. The last two men standing were Ollie Sills (Senior Mixed) and Jacob Scadden (U18’s). Well done to all those who did the Yoyo!

As Winston Churchill once said "If you are going through hell, keep going."
