HBU travelled to Grimsby at the weekend and when assessing what squad would be travelling to this vital game last Wednesday choices were lessening with each moment. With two players already out with injuries, many others unavailable due to work commitments it was slim pickings as it was and were looking at taking a bare squad of 5 out players only to be hit with a further knock with young Joe Singleton injuring his foot and on crutches after training, the situation was looking dire with a big ask of 4 players and no substitutes for a game that could prove difficult for even a full squad and a loss would end their chances of retaining the Premier League title.

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.
Herne bay United are one step closer in their mission to retain their national premier league title this weekend as they took on Premier League new boys Peterborough. United went into the game knowing that they need to win all 5 of their remaining premier league matches if they want to retain the title.
