The new Norwich Devils Youth had their first taste of competitive football as they played a Navy Vs White game at the Hethersett Sport in the Park event. The Youth Team was split into 2 different teams, White and Navy, and faced each other in a scrimmage.
Players on both teams got a taste of playing both offense and defense as the teams demonstrated the skills they had been learning since the team was formed in July 2011.
Although the Navy Team ran out eventual winners by a score of 48-21 players on both teams impressed Head Coach Steve Hoskins, “The main aim today was getting the players used to a game situation with play calling, referees and a scoreboard. There are a lot of positives which we can take and some things we also need to go away and work on.” The Youth team will return to training and hope to schedule games against league opponents as they look to secure league status for 2013.
