GB Women Lose Opening Swiss Fixture

GREAT Britain women went down 31-30 to LK Zug in the opening game of their stay in Switzerland after delayed travel from their training camp in London took their toll on the squad.

The team arrived in Zurich late from Britain after their travel plans were disrupted, and despite battling well they went down by one goal in their training game on Thursday night.

“We were all so tired after a long day travelling,” said team manager Melanie Chowns. “But it was a great training game though, and Talent ID goalkeeper Laura Innes got to play the whole game, which was great for her, and she had a great second half especially.”

And Holly Lam-Moores added: “We had been travelling since 6am and were carrying around some heavy legs which meant we did not play as well as we should have.

“With plenty more technical mistakes than usual we began to slip into old habits. We started badly but managed to pick up the pace in the second half but it just wasn’t enough.

“However, it was good training for us leading up to the tournament where we will face top league teams from France, Germany and Switzerland.

“The mood is high after a nice day of sightseeing and a good two hours of training this morning. Tomorrow we meet Goppingen from Germany, Dijon from France and Bruhl from Switzerland. It will be a tough test for us we all look forward to it.”
