National Cadet League for Colebridge - Day 1
A tough day for the new boys today. With Sophie Rinnhoffer and Nathaniel Saunders moving on to other things, Cyrus Harris (furthest right) led the charge for our A team. They won all but one, although realistically will not win this year as Wood Green and Woodfield have entered decent teams. Our B team did better than I anticipated and our C team found it tough. With a couple of 9 year olds and a few 10 year olds in our 12 strong squad (not all shown), they will gain valuable experience and will have every opportunity to improve over the next 4/5 years in this event so this year is not all about winning but accelerating the development of an even younger crop.
