Old Parks Sports Club:News Brief
19th Edition, May 2016
In this edition:
Hockey finally starts!
Junior Soccer Annual Tournament 3 - 5 Jun
Pub Quiz Night - 27 (fully booked) & 28 May
Winter T20 Cricket League & RAC 10KM Run - May
Hockey Finally Starts! With a big Bang!
Winter hockey league has got under way a few weeks back and our first games were played in the hot autumn sun which put a bit pressure on the fitness levels this early on in the season.
After dropping down a league from last season, the ladies side seems to have found their groove and they have two wins under the belt and their season has got off to a cracker! Both the men's sides play in the same league together and at this early stage of the season the Old Parks A side have won both their games while the Old Parks B side have battled with injuries and have yet to find thier winning ways.
The hockey winter league is a long season and only ends in September so there is still plenty of hockey to be played in the months ahead and all the players are thus far enjoying their hockey as well as a good few liquid refreshments after the games! The league standings from last year saw the ladies move down from the Reserve league to 1st league while in the Men's 4th league, Parks A side, narrowly missed moving up a league and came 3rd while Parks B side ended the season in the middle of the table at 5th.
If any interested players are keen to play in the season ahead, they can contact the club and be put in touch with Lizle Austin or myself.
