England Girls Winter Tournament
Early start for the team and supporters with a 8.30 meeting at London’s Heathrow.
All arrived in plenty of time with all their documentation!
Quick chats and reassurances with players and parents, this is often a worrying time for the many new players (and parents) who have not experienced an International trip away representing their country.
After short goodbyes, progressed effortlessly through check in and security both especially set up for the team.
Plane left on time and most of the players took the time to catch up on some sleep.
Coach took us North out of Helsinki and stopped at a pre booked service station for a hot meal….place and staff could not have been nicer…what we ate we had no idea but it was good, back on the coach for the last part of our journey.
Just arrived at Piispala and there is light snow and the girls are all settled with their kit in their changing room for the weekend and after a snack and hot chocolate the girls are now all gone to bed.
Tomorrow we have an early start, breakfast, a walk to the rink and a warm up before our first game.
