Match Report

With several key men away with other team duties Team 5 saw the “Goliath” that is Litchfield 5ths travel to the Grammar School this Saturday. Litchfield brought young legs and a very positive attacking style and sadly Team 5 was given a masterclass in hockey.

Positives saw a call up for Callum Nightingale straight from the badgers and new to the club Karam Duhra. The usual faces were accompanied and mentions go out to the Cat (Steve Rowlands) who really did save team blushes, David Hosking with bad back issues battled on, a last minute call up for Richard “Silky smooth” Cartwright, Mr Vice (Neil Ward) who was clattered early doors but smashed on through till the end, and Mr England (Matthew Lewis) for plugging all the gaps.

Litchfield bulldozed a very tired Team 5 to a 9-0 win. Man of the match was a very close affair with Mr England taking the title this week due to a positive attitude and keeping the will to win however with Callum “The Bullet” coming a very close second for always being in the right place, having great pace and some very very smooth close quarter stick action……Next week sees Team 5 at home against Litchfield six.
