Newtown Hockey Club Day
May 30 was the day to celebrate the Newtown Hockey Club, and a good chance to support our fellow club members, with all our matches on the one day. The day began early with the U13 teams on the pitch, and the BBQ fired up. Thanks to all those who helped during the day, especially to Andrea and Dianne who were on duty until late in the day.
Thanks to the bakers in the Club (Marion, Ros, Tracey, Karen and Kylie) – the general opinion was that the cupcakes were absolutely delicious! The hoodies were popular – maybe because of the cold blustery day.
The U8 and U11 players were able to join in the fun once their games at Lloyd Reserve had finished, and enjoyed running on with the U17 team at the start of their match.
The D1 Women Newtown Strikers match was cancelled so this gave us an opportunity to play a fun match between Newtown Strikers and the D2 Women Newtown Spirit ‘and the rest’ – a cast of thousands, with our junior members joining the Spirit team and showing off some great skills.
The U8 and U11 players also got a chance to play on the synthetic surface.
Amelia even had a go at umpiring – despite the crutches! Our youngest members were there to enjoy the day too.
