Back to hockey with a bang!

It was great to get back on the hockey pitch and with the 3s game cancelled the 2nd XI were boosted by the 3rd XI players who played their socks off.

Mention should be made to Daisy in her debut for New Beccs, who had her knee ‘pop out’ and, after a short break to ‘pop’ it back in, she got back on the pitch and had an awesome game at the back! We also welcomed back on pitch, Fionna, who looked like she had never been away! A big thank you to Lizzy Loader for turning up even though she ‘declined’ on Teamer. She was suffering but gave her all. We started well and had more of the ball in the first half, made their goalie work hard but just could not make it count. Dartford had a break and got their first goal and by half time had another. Our heads did not go down and we battled on. When H rocketed in our first goal it looked like we could get it back. However, Dartford had other ideas and piled on the pressure and although there were many saves, another three got by. The game was played in great spirit and it is only the first game of the season so onwards and upwards. Play like this every week and our rewards will come
