For the first time in Davenies history, two U’11 hockey
teams ventured to St. John's School in Northwood. Upon arrival, and whilst the
goalkeepers were clambering into their storm trooper-like protective kit, the
rest of the boys took part in a full warm up.
Once the matches began, both Davenies' teams acquitted
themselves extremely well against seasoned opposition, ably demonstrating the
fruits of their labours over the past year or so.
In the end, both sides succumbed to defeat (the As by only
one goal) but the boys had thoroughly enjoyed their first experience of
competitive school hockey.
