The Devils senior team continued its ongoing rebuilding process with a recent scrimmage against fellow development team the Kings Lynn Patriots. A chance to put into practice all the techniques and plays the largely inexperienced team had learnt in training, the team performed extremely well against a larger visiting squad from Kings Lynn.
Meanwhile the Devils defense improved throughout the practice managing to get some good gains on the ground, intercept passes and recover a fumble. The Devils also showed promise on special teams with some sizable returns as the afternoon came to a close.
Devils Head Coach Mark Hoskins praised the team following the scrimmage stating, ‘Everybody involved should be proud of what has been accomplished today. We did a lot of things right, but we still have a way to go. The most important thing is, this is a good start that can be built upon. We have a great nucleus of players who are more than capable of taking the team forward into competition’
The Norwich Devils are still on the lookout for players with the possibility of more fixtures later in the year and early 2016. Check out our recruitment section of the website if you want to join and be part of our future!
