Iron Armour – The Road to Europe 2020 (Pt.3)

Hi guys,

Aarvi here, this is the final installment of the Iron armour lead up to Europe. If you have not checked out part 1 and part 2, just click on part 1 or 2 whichever you want to read.

Unfortunately the lead up has been put on hold due to this recent outbreak. The tournament has been postponed to October, which has been very disheartening for the players and coaches, however they understand the health and safety of the whole squad is the number one priority.

In saying that a lot of hard work had been put in by the players and coaches, which was hard to see the tour being postponed but the attitude Chris and his team have drilled into the squad is second to none. The players and coaches have held their heads high.

That has definitely shown in the past week’s sessions with good numbers showing up to training and the positivity of the boys

Nonetheless, this has given the opportunity for the squad to wind-down and take a little stress off themselves from an already intense prep. The coaches have been able to do some team bonding activities to further gel together the squad so they come even stronger later in the year. An example is shown in the video below as they are doing a dance from the ever so trending Tik Tok.

So as the tour is on hold at the moment, the players and coaches have decided to come back even stronger when the time comes. This is great to see from the outside and shows how important mentality can be. As the boys could have dropped their heads and stopped showing up to training etc.

So if there is something to take out of this and I definitely have it to make sure to turn a negative into a positive whatever the circumstances. As that is when life is most enjoyable and are memories you want to cherish.

As always,


– Aarvi.
