Preseason Training

Our Juniors have been hard at work with preseason club training and preparation.  It is wonderful see the players gaining confidence, improving their skills, and making new friends.  Thank you to all the coaches who have committed to the season.  We are very lucky to have both national and premier league players coaching our juniors, proudly Wanderers.
