“We did a lot of Zoom training and the team were great and kept with it, their commitment is excellent and they very rarely miss a game.
“We’ve been working really hard on mental strength and mental health so it’s really nice to get back to training again.”
Karen continued to add that Solar are in a good position in the league ahead of returning to matches at the start of next year.
She said: “We’ve won all of our eight games so we just need to repeat that in January when we play all the teams again but we’ve given ourselves a good cushion and got ourselves in a good position.
