Last game in England

Greetings from the East of England where we have playing our fourth and final match before heading to Holland

A bit of a travel day but we did get an opportunity to have a quick look at Man Utd's stadium

Our mens tonight came up against a very strong opposition and led early, before going down with tired legs.

Our first grade girls also came up against a very strong team who are in the east of England league and are currently undefeated

We went down 0-2 but the girls are really playing some great hockey and improving all the time.

The highlight of the night was our second grade girls first win of the tour and what a win it was ! Challenged by the coaching staff before the game to see what they were made of , the girls were outstanding , with goals to Suzi and Sharon !  

The night finished with a visit to Kay's local pub to say hi and taste her local brew

Match in the midlands

Greetings from Manchester !  

Yesterday we had some intense games where everyone is really starting to gel in their teams and playing well

in the girls, the highlight was Courtney our keeper scoring a super goal playing her first game on the field in 8 years !!!

Our 2nd grade girls went down 4-1, and our first grade girls, playing against very strong opponents fought hard in a 3-0 loss

so it was to the men's game and the boys were focused and ready to go . We came out of the blocks very well controlling the ball and GOAL !!!  

Fatigue took its toll but the boys held on to a pulsating 4-3 win....our first of the tour! 

more updates soon but you catch more photos on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter

In the Cotswolds

Greetings from the midland of England. The first few games of the tour are done and dusted with a vast improvement in all teams from our first game to the second set of matches. Everyone is playing well and although no wins as yet we have had some close games and great hockey.

Yesterday during the day we toured the stunning Cotswolds region , with one of the highlights being visiting the local bakery which is run by 97 year old Mrs Watson !
