Mud glorious mud – at Ackley Heads!

anna french (2)Ackley Heads had a reputation for being a tough gig and it certainly didn’t disappoint!

Some strong performances from all categories, especially the team captains who were both the number one scorers for the green and golds.

Extremely muddy conditions lead to falling runners, tears, lost spikes but a tremendously positive sense of achievement and wellbeing. Bring on next week at Druridge Bay!
