The first EDG training session took place on Saturday in Ballina and was an excellent training session!
We had 9 players at the training and they all worked extremely hard throughout the session, showing great attitude and focus.
We started the training with footwork exercises to the rear corners then incorporated the footwork exercises into 2v1 situations, before finishing off with 2v1 games.
Well done to all the players that attended and good luck at the Interprovincials this weekend!
