End of Season!

The sun shone, the hockey was relentless and hopefully there aren’t too many aching parental limbs!  A brilliant end to the season.

A quick note from myself and the coaches to say thank-you for the gifts.   We all volunteer to help out the kids and the club but it’s the commitment, support and involvement of you the parents/carers/grandparents that makes our minis section what it is.

We’ve had a great season building to some excellent results at the end of the season.  We also had a Christmas party, Halloween dress-up, parents vs kids and in2hockey.  We’ve raised nearly 200 pounds for our match shirt fund and have sponsors (thankyou Piers and Lizzie) that will also help fund a set.  I’m hoping we should have enough for 2 sets of mew match shirts for next year, stay tuned!

Enjoy the break, there will be some training camps, summer mix-ins and for you parents “Back to Hockey” sessions over the summer if you want to get back or start playing yourselves.  Details will be on the club website.

Minis training will be back in September stay tuned for the start date!

Neil

What a day!

Thank you all so much for supporting such an amazing day for our Havant Festival.  Our U8s, U10s and junior umpires were a credit to the club.

A big thanks to Helen for doing the timings whilst keeping the tournament running smoothly and Barry for marking up the pitches, sorting out all the college logistics and basically being a legend, thanks Barry!

Final training dates..

I had a lot of questions today on dates for the end of the season, after talking to the coaches we have decided that the final minis training date will be 14th April (Kids Vs Parents and Awards).  Next week will be training as normal.

Cake Sale…

Before the Hockey reports i wanted to let you all know that we raised a brilliant £164 and 13p for our shirt fund today.  Thanks to everyone that contributed to the cake sale, the money raised will go directly to minis shirts for next season and i’ll keep you all updated on how thats going.  You are awesome, all of you.

However this wouldn’t have been be possible without Jo who singlehandedly ran the Sale today for us when unfortunately Lisa was ill.   Superstar, thankyou Jo!!!

U8s

James and Chad were running the U8s today, both teams looked like they had great fun which is what our festivals are all about.  If anyone would like to send me a match report please send it over.

Big thanks to Chad who even though was catching a flight to China at lunchtime still came down to coach the minis for the tournament.  Thanks Chad, safe flight..

 

 

U10s

The under 10 teams had a great day of hockey at the John Wright Havant mini festival. Havant fielded three evenly matched teams with the emphasis on enjoying themselves on a lovely sunny day. The players did excellently and it was great to see such a volume of good players from players who have been with the minis for 5+ years to those who are in their first season.

In Tom’s team we had a characteristic slow start against a very good Gosport team and lost to a late goal. From then on though the team was brilliant. Highlights were; a 3-0 win over Chichester with player of the tournament Toby Johnson scoring two and hitting the post twice; a late equaliser against City with Theo scoring from a tight angle; and wins against 3 Haslemere teams. Robert and Thomas played excellently on midfield. Lily and Toby played with pace and skill on the wings. The coaches player’s of the tournament though were Alice and Imogen in defence who made excellent tackles and passed out from defence superbly. Both are new to hockey this year and the progress they have made is just brilliant, not looking out of place in a team with some mush more experienced and very strong players.

Special thanks to all the umpires who did really well, a real inspiration for the minis to see older young players helping the club. Thanks also to all who helped with organising and running the day especially Neil who I think has spent nearly 20 hours at hockey pitches with the minis this week and last. Super day!

Tom

My team (Havant 3) had a great end of season festival and played some superb Hockey today.  We hit the ground running beating two Haslemere teams in quick succession and scoring 6 goals over the two games.  I was concerned we’d need a new goal net at one point with the amount of attacking prowess we had on display!  We then subsequently came unstuck against a strong CoP side where we couldn’t seem to then find the net, i guess in fear of damaging it further, though we had plenty of chances in what was on balance an even game.  Our final game against another Haslemere team saw us again run out victors with another 3 goal rout, the change of pitch doing us good and then new net clearly inspiring confidence!

Our display today was build from the back with a solid defensive display from Lauren and Anna who worked well as a team organising the defence and bossing the opposition, great job girls.  Austin worked hard at the back playing a sweeper role and saving the team on a number of occasions.  Our midfield dynamo and team engine Holly with a solid backline behind her was able to push forward winning the ball high up the pitch and distributing well to our wings.  She also came away with a couple of goals.  We rotated our wingers regularly, Rebecca gave a typically energetic performance with some excellent dribbling and positional play.  Keira though starting up front (and scoring) found herself playing left wing  for our last game and after some hard running to support our attacking play saw her enter the D and put away the winning goal.  My goal of the day (and Tom was watching!).  Martha taking a break from goal keeping this week played up front for us and was rewarded with a goal (or goals?) showing she has the skill to play around the field, great performance  and despite an injury she kept the opposition stretched.  Megan played in a variety of roles for us today, right wing, defence and attack all with her usual determination and commitment for the team.  We also had the next generation Illing (Holly’s brother) Toby (another one!) joining us today from the U8s to gain some U10s experience.  Toby played defence, wing and attack with lots of energy and showing some good pace and skill.  He was incredibly unlucky not to score on his debut, and did not look out of place in the team, one to watch!

Awesome effort team, best i’ve seen us play at a festival this season!

Players Player – Holly / Coaches Player(s) – Lauren and Anna (for their defensive partnership)

Also big thanks to Stuart also who stepped in not only last week to umpire for us at In2Hockey but this week coached the Havant 2 team for us as well.  Players player for his team was Celina, well done! 🙂
