This year has been a great one to reflect upon. We’ve had new players making leaps and bounds, Valkyries invited to the GB training squad, and all in all another year in our development.
Since the creation of mention of the month last year we have highlighted a range of important matters through which individual Valkyries have risen to. But there are certain members of the Valkyries team who are in need of mention at this point, and they are the coaches.
As many coaches do, they put in endless hours in to develop playbooks, individuals, and the team. They help to pull us through and see the best side of ourselves even in the less ideal circumstances – sharing their enthusiasm for the game to rookies and vets alike. Being the only women’s team in Wales can be tough, but with the coaches we have we will always pull through with a smile on our faces.
Thank you, coaches!
