Tullamore HC host U12 Blitz; 30th November 2014
Newbridge Hockey Club travelled to Tullamore last Sunday with six teams for the second under 12 West Leinster hockey blitz of the season.
The Newbridge teams had a busy morning playing 18 games in total against teams from Tullamore, Naas, Abbeyleix and North Kildare.
The weather was kind to us with the early morning fog clearing to give a bright dry morning. Newbridge produced some fine displays of hockey putting into practice what they've learnt at training and have improved greatly since the last blitz. The newly joined players are improving every week with help from our more experienced members. Even a few knocks and bruises didn't dampen spirits.
Thanks to all the players and supporters who travelled on day and to the parents who managed teams. Newbridge hockey club would also like to thank Abbeyleix hockey club for organising the blitz and refreshments and to Tullamore hockey club for providing the venue.
Back to training from 10:45 - 12 noon for the next two weeks and then a well earned Christmas break for all!
