So this week was the kind of week we all had to remind ourselves we do really love hockey and what a fantastic sport it can be...as middle of the afternoon, cold damp and dreary with portaloos for changing rooms is not most people’s idea of a great Saturday.
Anyway, the team showed up raring and eager to to win and show some of the stuff we do so well at training. However, a combination of an interrupted warmup, a serious lack of yellow socks (naming no names) and bin bag attire was not the best start to the game.
We had a fairly strong first half but the oppo were playing some annoyingly good hockey.
Shout out to our man of the match Matilda Lang for some great saves to keep us relatively in the game.
Second half was much stronger only conceding one. Some great midfield work and sold defence showing some good determination as a team. We have high hopes for next week if we can continue with that attitude, bring the correct colour socks and I promise no 2am emails from me (Grace Glendinning)!
