“Thunder & Lightning Win the Day”
It was Berko’s turn to host the first U12 boys tournament and given the weather forecast we decided to name our two teams “Thunder & Lightning”. It was great to see 16 under 12 boys turning up to battle against Wycombe and Buckingham and we managed to secure 2 wins. The cake stall, run by Cindy, raised valuable funds for the club and Joel and Jo donated their time to umpire the games. Sarah Filby managed Thunder and for most of the players it was their first experience of tournament hockey, but they rumbled their way through in fine form. Sophie managed the sparky Lightning team who won 2 of their games and were just beaten by Buckingham in their last game. A definite success for the boys youth section.
