This week saw the last league matches for this half of the winter season. For the majority of us it’s a chance to recharge our batteries and for some, to catch up with friends and families over the festive period. This can include piling on the layers and heading back to brave whatever the UK weather throws at us. Hopefully the joy of catching up (& central heating) will keep us going until we return to the Spanish norm of blue skies and sunshine and looking forward to the start of the second half of the winter season in January. Good luck to those players who are staying here and participating in the “Winter Valencian Championships” during this December/January break.
