Five years of GHC Juniors were invited back to GHC for our first ever GHC Alumni Game.
Three dozen players currently on gap years or at uni were able to make the event. Fantastic turnout - and what a talented bunch!
The group were coming from nearly 20 different univerisities including from two foreign countries - and a handful were also on gap years and/or currently playing or coaching with GHC.
Despite not having played together for years (or ever), the mix of young men and ladies and various ages made for some excellent quality match play. Nine goals were scored despite some superb keeping from both Alice and Conal in goal at either end.
At half-time the scores were tied up at 3-3 (with the GHC Men's 1s GK, Jayme, playing outfield and opening the scoring!) but the whites had the better of the second half to take the honours.
Big thanks to Richard Haynes, James Bennett and James Ferguson for umpiring!
And of course a huge thank you to GHC Director of Hockey Dan Fox for organising the game (and for spiking the half-time oranges and helping close down the clubhouse bar!).
We look forward to making this a mainstay of the GHC calendar!
