Hockey Hooray!

It was a cold rainy day, but the children were not put off and were eager to get involved. For some children this was their first hockey competition but they showed brilliant determination and developed their skills throughout the day. The children played ‘Quicksticks’ hockey with squads of 6 and only 4 children on the pitch at any time.

Both teams had a successful day with Elsea Park’s B team coming 7th. It was a tense playoff round when the Elsea Park A team had to play against Bourne Abbey’s B team for 3rd  and 4th place with a final score of 2-1 to Bourne Abbey. 

A big thank you to Rupert Gibson and The Deepings Sports Leaders for a fabulous event which encouraged a love of a new sport for many of our children.
