The Citizens squad travel to Cardiff tomorrow ahead of the weekend’s Europa Cup action – our group sees us taking on Bonson FJEP of France and Szentendrei of Hungary on Saturday afternoon/evening followed by Kocaeli University Sports Club of Turkey on Sunday morning. The full schedule and constant updates will be availble through the IKF website here
The squad are the best prepared that we’ve ever been and, following a knowledge-garnering ‘friendly’ vs Mavs to Christen the fabulous new Oriam sports centre at Heriot-Watt University and instense summer training, we are excited to get on the court in Cardiff and perform like we know we can.
And now for the gushing thanks – as we head to Cardiff we have achieved over 50% of our JustGiving fundraising plea to help us to cover the unexpectedly high tournament fee. From the bottom of our hearts we thank: Geoff & Jean, Chris, Anonymous x 5, Vicky Bannister, Lynn D, Edward Bellamy & Mairead O’Dowd, Yasmeen Rabindranath, Sam Stevenson, Dale, Lee Gill, Erik R and Princess Emma Stanley – we are extraordinarily touched by your generosity and we aim to make you proud and justify your support of us.
Reports on Cardiff to follow, but from the whole squad, thank you again and only 2 more sleeps to go!
