End of a great season for Havant Minis!

Another great hockey season has come to an end and for once we were blessed with the sun.  Well done to all those who took part, some fantastic play, fab goals scored and fun had by all.

Thank you to all the parents who kindly donated cakes and thank you to Maddison and Harriett for selling them all day – those delicious treats made a fair amount for the club.

Big thank you to Rich Barker for being today’s time keeper, excellent job!

Well done to the junior umpires – Joe, Jack, Sophie and Morgan who did a great job at keeping the games controlled and fair but yet still allowing the game to flow nicely.

Dont forget to buy your tickets for the end of season BBQ on Sunday 21st May at Ditcham Park school. We need to know numbers ASAP for the catering.  The link is on the website to directly purchase your tickets.  At the BBQ we will be giving out some awards – coaches player of the year, most improved player of the year and players players.  For the players players we need your child’s nomination, if your child is in the under 10 section I would be grateful if you could text me with a name on 07789798977 and if your child is in the under 8’s section could you please text Tom with a name on 07867419027.

I found two jumpers at the end of the tournament so if your child is missing their jumper I may have it, one was little and one looked fairly new.

Lost Coat!

Did anyone by chance pick up a blue coat on Sunday after training? It has a Mill Rythe school badge on it and belongs to Enzo Richardson.  Please let me know if anyone has it.  It may well have been moved to the kit room after the girls match so I will also check in there as well.

Haslemere Tournament Report

What a gorgeous day it was for the second to last tournament of the season hosted by Haslemere.  Made a change to enjoy the warmth of the sun rather than freezing on the pitch sideline. Thank you to all those mum’s that sacrificed their lie in to come and watch on Mother’s day – hope you spent the rest of the day being very spoilt!

Under 10’s Bears

Big thank you to Rich Barker for managing the team whilst Kevin umpired.  The team have  come long way since the beginning of the season, although they only won 1 game they played exceptionally well together. Well done to Lucia and Wilf for scoring two lovely goals and a special mention to Dominic who was goal keeper for making some great saves.

Under 10’s Alligators 

Tough tournament for the Alligators – 2 wins, drew 2, lost 1.  The smaller pitch seemed to hinder our team and created a bunch effect with the players on both teams.  Well done to Charlie, Tristan and Nat for scoring some awesome goals.  Our defenders were really strong and kept the pressure on the opposition. Special mention to Jude and Nat for their strong passing and effort in keeping the game tight.

Under 8’s – by Tom Brixey

The under 8s had their toughest tournament this year with some tricky matches against City of Portsmouth and Petersfield. After three tough loses the team changed their tactics a little and set out to try harder and enjoy their last games. They really turned their tournament around and dominated their last two games against City of Portsmouth and Haslemere. Theo and Amy defended excellently and passed well. The midfield of Holly, Thomas and Charlotte did really well, Charlotte at last found her favourite position at right midfield. The attackers ran all day. Toby came close to scoring his first goal. Lilly and Finn tried really hard. Special mention goes to Bella Bowen who really got stuck in in only her second tournament. All mums should be really proud of their children this Mother’s Day for their strength of character and determination in not giving up and really improving throughout this tournament.

Training as usual on Sunday at Havant. See you there.
