HOCKEY: Grantham club get season under way with training session
Grantham Hockey Club got their season under way with a training session at The Meres leisure centre at the weekend.
The core of the team that ended the 2014/15 season welcomed new arrivals before learning about the new rules introduced for this season.
This extra practice should help Grantham players adapt quickly to the changes to long corners, free hits and green cards now forcing players to leave the field for two minutes.
With another training session scheduled at The Meres this Saturday at 2pm, players new, current and old are welcome to pop along, before their first league match the following Saturday.
This season sees the team competing in Division 6NW (N) of the East League against teams from Alford, Bourne Deeping, Horncastle, Leadenham, Long Sutton, Louth and Spalding after an encouraging third-place finish last season.
They begin this year’s campaign hosting Louth 2nd before they head to Spalding 5th.
Weekly training will begin on Monday, September 21, 8pm at The Meres and anybody interested in playing hockey is most welcome to attend.
The club is always looking for new players and anybody interesting in joining should phone David Braunton on 07967 566943 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
