Wednesday 24th January 2024 – U11 Boys’ Hockey v Lingfield College

U11 Boys Hockey

On the 24th January we went to Lingfield’s home turf to play two hockey matches against them.  The long journey was approximately forty minutes.  There were fifteen boys in total from Year 5 and Year 6.

We arrived at their school at two thirty in the afternoon and we were all politely greeted by one of their nice coaches.  Everyone walked to the astro but first we went the wrong way so we went the other way and we entered the astro turf.

We went to a bench where Vincent and Heath got into their goalkeeper gear.  All of the boys were able to train in the goal which took up one third of the whole pitch.  Before long team A and B were split into their two teams and we started both of the hockey games.

The game quickly started and we kept passing to each other until both opponents scored.  We all kept on trying our best and at half time we fixed our team and played on.  We were at the end of the game but sadly Team A lost 6 nil and Team B lost 8 nil.

After our exhausting match we had a match tea which was sausages in rolls.  After our tea we went back to the minibus all talking about our wonderful time.
