News from the Masters
Tuesday 27 June saw a fantastic performance from the newly formed o60’s Women’s Masters team. The game marked the start of the o60’s journey; being the first game the team had ever played together. Until now numbers haven’t been there to form a team!
Being able to play a team like Australia as their debut match would of been a privilege most will never experience. Wales played Australia and drew over both games; Tuesday saw a 1-1 draw followed by a 0-0 on Wednesday morning. The team will now enter the trial stages in November with a view to entering tournaments as a squad.
The last weekend of June saw Wales Men’s Masters (o60’s, o65’s and o70’s) play in their Home Nations Tournament. The results were disappointing for Wales; however in most games much improvement had been made; with many goals by the opposing teams being made during the second half.
