What a wonderful way to get back into playing Masters hockey. We mixed both our 60s and 65s+ teams to make it a truly friendly tournament and many thanks to Barbara Oliver and Liz Dakin for putting together our very strong opposition.

We really enjoyed the games and met new players who may now look to join the LX in the future.

The BBQ was great with a good atmosphere, food and company. Thanks to Quinnie for doing the food – always a pleasure to chat to him too.

Sunday we woke up with a few aches and pains but they soon disappeared once we were on the pitch. The mixing of the men’s and women’s teams worked really well and we had some very close games and lots of fun.

Thanks to Smoggy for organising the tournament despite all the setbacks and already looking forward to including it in our playing schedule for next year.
