6) Coach Expectations
I’m excited about the potential of the squad this year as we head into our second season in the ABL. We have had a good intake from our sister club Cambridge Cats from a talented U16 group whichwas at the club last season. We don’t have the spread of positions that I would ideally like but within that, it gives us a clear identity as to what we are this season and what we need to be competitive in this league. I’m hopeful that we can push on from a solid debut season in the ABL.
