Havant’s under 8 team started their season at a freezing cold City of Portsmouth on Sunday. With many of the team very new to hockey it was a bit of an unknown how well the team would get on. The performance of all players though was excellent as the under 8s drew 2, lost 1 and won 3 games, playing some excellent team hockey and very unlucky not to win more. The experienced duo of Aaron Richards and Robert Proctor excelled in midfield with goals, strength and skill. The energy and enthusiasm of Lilly, and Finn provided lots of excitement from the substitutes bench. The defence of Pippa, Luke, Charlotte and Thomas stopped many certain goals. Theo surprised everyone (especially me) by getting involved, having some good skill and passing! Aimie was the most improved player with an excellent goal and some brilliant play in midfield. Special thanks to the parents for their encouragement and providing lots of warm clothes. All round a great day!
