Karl Izzo’s comments:

“This was a great experience for all the boys, many of whom were playing in their first official international competition.  This age group tournament is of a very high level and gives the players a very good idea of how other nations are progressing.  We made a great improvement over last year as we managed to win three matches compared to the one we won last year.  All 15 players played an active role in the seven matches played over six days.  My opinion is that we are on the right track but we need to keep working hard to improve endurance and our physical and technical abilities.  I hope we will return next year and once again improve on this year’s achievement.  I would like to thank the ASA for making this participation possible, all the clubs and last but not least the parents for all their help and support.”
