CKS Swifts have enjoyed their first hit out for the year with the young players impressive.
For the Swifts their practice match against Beaufort was about three main points. They were the 18 man press, the kick in and their disposal efficiency.
Joint coach Ben Martin was impressed with how they executed their kick in and 18 man press, but said their disposal could have been better.
"Over the day both Hannsy (Paul Hanns) and I were happy with the boys," Martin said.
"I mean our disposal isn't where we would like it to be, but it was our first match so it was almost expected."
Like most clubs it is the younger up and coming players that relish their opportunity in practice matches and this game was no different.
Rory Jones, Jack Salmi and Ethan Kennedy all went beyond the expectations of the coaching staff while Scott Carey continued to lead by example.
The pre season for CKS Swifts has primarily been about aerobic work and the fitness of the team was really pleasing.
"There were so many positives to come out of the game, fitness probably highlighted them," Martin said.
Sam Anyon was the sole player to pull up sore with everyone else expected to have a training session tomorrow before their first round next weekend.
