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.



End of season approaches ……

Just a few things for you all to note –

  • There will training next Sunday for the minis but there will be no training on Easter Sunday (more time to eat chocolate!!)
  • Havant are hosting the final tournament of the season on April 23rd.  If anyone would be available to help out on the day please let me know so I know who to delegate jobs too.  I would be grateful if ALL parents could bring cakes (cupcakes, large cakes, cookies, tray bakes …etc) for us to sell on the day.
  • It has been decided that Sunday 23rd April will also be the final session of the season. We will start again early September.
  • End of season BBQ is on 21st May at Ditcham Park school 11.30am – 3.00pm. Tickets can be purchased via the Havant Hockey Club website. Could you please purchase tickets by Friday 5th May.  £6 each / families of 4 or more receive a discount.

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.

Lost Jumper !

Did anyone pick up a Havant Hockey jumper today by chance ? Olivia Barker left hers at the tournament today.  It does have her name in it so could we all double check or if you did pick it up could you please let me know on 07789 798 977

Thank you.

In2Hockey Tournament

Havant minis have entered one under 10 boys team into the In2Hockey tournament which will be held at Haslemere hockey club on Sunday 19th March.  Below are the boys which have been chosen.

Dominic Davies
Alfie Bowen
Charlie Prior
Jude Richards
Lucas Higlett
Noah Gibbs
Tristan Farrer
Joseph McKay
Nat Howarth
Aaron Richards
George Jameson

This is a knock out style tournament – players will need to be there for 10am for a warm up, matches start at 10.30am and potentially the last game could be 2pm depending on how well they do. The best team will be picked for each game so this could mean less pitch time for some players. It would be good if all of the above boys could be at training this Sunday to get some extra practise.

Tournament location –  Woolmer Hill sports ground, Woolmer Hill, Haslemere, GU271QA

Please let me know if your child cannot make this tournament by texting me on 07789798977.

Thank you.
