HBU at U11 Tournament in St Omer

Posted by  on April 27, 2011

Several young HBU players and their parents spent the Easter weekend in St Omer, France. They were competing in their first International Roller Hockey Tournament along with teams from France, Germany and Holland.

Due to injuries the U11 team were without some of the more experienced players and St Omer loaned a goalkeeper and one out-player, both of whom were very young and inexperienced.

All the young players performed with great enthusiasm and after a slow start gained more confidence and got closer to the opposition with each passing game and winning their last game of the tournament. The icing on the cake was for the team to collect the ‘Fair Play’ trophy as voted by all the other team players and coaches.
