Winter came late to Moscow yet training went on. Despite balmy -2 temperatures and a month's snow in 24 hours, the Shamrocks trained in the warm indoors. Back at the FC Lokomotiv Moscow training base to get ready for the upcoming season, the players braved the conditions with smiles.
While some were fortunate (or unfortunate) enough to be in cars all slalomed away, half the group decided to head for food nearby (no brand names allowed before sponsorship contracts are signed). Only the best protein was allowed on the table.
With 3 confirmed dates in the Nordic Region, the Moscow Shamrocks are aiming for attendance at 2 and ambitiously looking at all 3. Having attended 3 in 2017 (Stockholm, Bratislava, Maastricht), 3 'local' trips for Gaelic Games Europe's most easterly club will test all involved. However if our players and supporters are willing to go out in snowstorms to train, everything is possible!
