I know there is a lot of people that will be disappointed with their results, but it is important to remember that it has been a long time since we’ve played and fitness may not be where it should be.

You should be proud of yourselves – we don’t have the resources of other Unis, many of your captain’s double as a coach, our sports department is small but mighty and recruitment of your players is completely student-led

 

Keep your heads up and sooner or later we’ll be bringing home the Ws for Plymouth. Well done to everyone who played! Let’s get them next week!!
