We was happy with some areas of our game that we have improved on such as our passing and you could see the new formation and style we're trying that we are enjoying it. As a team, we were pleased to gain a point from the weekend, but also felt we could have gained a couple more. We'll work hard over the winter break now to prepare for the rest of the season. The main thing is we're enjoying playing in this league and learning so much from other experienced teams and players. "
