Great team spirit Monday 18 July 2016

Scarlett Russell 2016

Cardiff's UK Youth Development League (lower age group) team travelled to Cheltenham on Saturday last, 16th July, for the fourth and final round of this year's campaign.

Team Managers Jen Stone and Annie Hillman thought that the team, weakened through absences, would struggle but a great team spirit throughout the day saw the squad come through to finish an excellent second behind league leaders Swansea, who go on to the national final. Cardiff has an outside chance of joining them, depending on a paper comparison of all the runners up.
