So our Tilburg Trappers tournament team are on their way home with 5th place medals. Not bad for a team who had never played together before last week. The reports I’m hearing tell me you was all fantastic, your work rate was outstanding and behaviour to match well done each and everyone of you, you did yourselves and Sting proud.
A huge thank you to Rob Saunders Carl Neenan Simon Priestleyand Nigel Frost for spending your Easter weekend coaching our children and thank you to Sharon, Zoe and Val for giving up their hubbys on a bank holiday weekend once again in the name of Sutton Sting.
You all know I’m just a mum that stepped up to be GM for Sting, I know a little bit about hockey not a lot though but when Nigel sent me a video of the team warm up earlier today one thing hit me maybe cause I’m a woman maybe cause I’m a mum but the first thing I thought was ’ they look happy, they look like their having the time of their lives’ Yes as GM I want them winning and if they had brought home the silverwear then that would have been awesome but I also want them to have fun, to enjoy being a part of the Sting family, to make fantastic memories and for hockey to enrich their lives. Take a bow Tilburg I think you just did that. 🐝🐝🐝
Team app won’t let me post the video as it’s to long but I’ve popped it on our Facebook page for you to see for yourself if you agree. UTS
