In search of warm-up games before the Regionals, we travelled to the Big Smoke and the land of Citizen Smith to play London Wayfarers in Tooting.  We had played them the previous week in the semi final of the Surreys and found them tough opponents who we just beat them 1-0 in extra time.  After this, they had won the 3/4 place playoff to come 3rd, so, decent opposition to play against....

At the end of the season you would expect the boys to be tiring, but not these boys! A number of them played together the week before in the Surrey Plate and so we really gelling as a team. They went out with a winning spirit and that's exactly what they did. We didn't play with goalies, except for the last match when Oxted Bs had a goalie...

2015-03-01 GU12CupWinners-200Well done to the GU10s!  After a massive effort over 75 gruelling minutes of hockey, the GU10s took away gold medals as Surrey Champions.  A great performance by all, and reward for the many hours of training and matches throughout the season.

For the adults reading this I have to say that the Sunday morning skyline of south London is not pretty (dull and depressing) ….even more so when the alarm has to be set on a Sunday!!!!!

For the children it’s a long way and when you ask the driver, “Are we there yet?”  5 or 6 times, don’t be surprised to receive a snappy answer!
