U8s teams on 3 March … two places at once!

We have 2 teams in different tournaments next week and have tried to get the balance right to be competitive in the tournaments whilst making logistics easy for parents with Under 10s who are also in the Fareham tournament. If we have got this wrong please comment / let a coach know. Anyone not playing this week we will try and get to play in Chichester tournament.

Both tournaments start at 10am with a meet at 9:20am at either Havant College or at Henry Cort Community College, Fareham (click here for a map).

Oliver’s Army

Possibly over critical of my son’s general play most of the time. Yesterday I was officially the proudest dad as Ollie’s stick work and goal scoring success inspired all around him to great things.

With all said and done what a great team performance too. Connor the rock in defence (or Python as he prefers to be called), Ella’s versatility, Emily Curwood’s sheer determination, Matthew’s will-to win, Morgan’s dependability, Poppy’s goal scoring tenacity, Emily Nelson’s debut, and not least Grace Taylor’s theme-tune ability … like her Dad, a see a career behind the microphone too!

This resulted in 4 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss … Goals scored 11 and 5 conceded. 6 for Ollie and 5 for Poppy. I am undoubtedly a lucky person to coach this great bunch of kids.

Havant Tournament Teams – Tens

We have now put 2 teams together for this weekends tournament at Havant. This will be a friendly tournament which will give further experience to more of our under 10’s with 2x mixed ability teams entered. Some more children will get the opportunity in the John Wright tournament again at Havant on the 1st April. There are inevitably some children loosing out but certainly not forgotten and particularly if you are fairly new to the club, stick with us and these opportunities may arise in the future.

Registration 9.30 Start 10 am will finish around 12.30

Little Minis Medals

4 teams of little stars … lots of sunshine … crates of Haribo … medals all round … the spirit of hockey in full flow.

Havant Boys were unbeaten on the day squeezing past Portsmouth, drawing with Chichester, beating the Havant girls and then putting 3 goals past Chichester in the final. Worth noting that Elsa scored a couple of cracking goals for the girls and Elin and Amelie both made some superb tackles to stop certain goals.

The photos in the gallery below show that hockey was the winner, but medals were awarded by Olympian David Faulkner according to the finishing table which ended …

Gold – Havant Boys
Silver – Chichester
Bronze – Portsmouth
Platinum – Havant Girls
