Advice for anyone wanting to coach?
Be prepared for your players to teach you more about yourself opposed to any lesson you will ever teach them. Embrace the challenges and savour the amazing energy levels the players bring to the game. Not every success is reflected on a points table.
Well done Darren and keep up the great work!
