Completed the third of my challenges today by taking part in a mini friendly tournament for Ruislip Men III at the Sportshouse in East London. I’ve been training with the Eagles for the past few weeks and this was the first opportunity to play in a full match.
Our first game against Brunel University. Unfortunately our inexperience as a team showed and we lost the game 17-3. I also managed to receive 2 yellow cards for apparent misdemeanors. I’m still not sure what I did wrong, so might have to read up on the rules a bit more before the next game.
The second game was against Great Dane Handball Club. Although slightly closer, we still lost the game 10-6.
Despite the losses it was a fun day all round and hopefully we will have more success next time round.
