The Royal Grammar School - Guildford brought 8 teams to play against 8 Guildford Hockey Club teams on Friday night. What a delight for so many players...
Many thanks to RGS for bringing their teams to play GHC U10 Boys, U12 Boys and even the U13 Girls got involved! Also a huge thanks to the players and parents who had to move their Friday night training to Charterhouse for the evening - much appreciated.
A word from RGS Head of Hockey, Craig Mullon:
The RGS Guildford U12 and U13 teams have played against Guildford HC on the first Friday of the school term for the past four years. This has been a fantastic hockey experience for all players, many of which count this as their very memorable first match ever.
Guildford HC continue to be fantastic hosts. This fixture is an enjoyable and worthwhile way to start the season, setting the standard early on.
There has always been a strong community link between GHC and several local schools, may this continue.
Thank you to all the coaches, Moms, Dads and volunteers who made the evening a success.

We look forward to continuing this annual event. Many thanks to all involved and special thanks to Gary Lonie whose GHC Junior coaching days are behind him now but who was key to maintaing and building the GHC-RGS relationship when he started coaching at GHC more than 12 years ago and who was behind getting the January Friday night fixture in the calendar. Thanks again, Gary.
