Getting Ready for the Match

At Britten Court, the team’s prepping for the first match of the season.

They’ve chosen the team name (Britten Court Angels), the kit colours (black shorts and purple shirts), and made sure the pitch is rolled out nice and smooth.

Next, they focused on individual team skills. With ‘Speedy’ Stan, ‘Regal Rodders’, ‘Spitfire’ Alan and ‘Mini Flash Harry’, they’ll be fielding a strong side when the children visit next week.

That afternoon, the children worked together to mark out the pitches and make rows of spectators for what promises to be a glorious occasion when the two teams come face to face for the first time.

Many hands make light work, marking out the pitch
