Donaghadee Ladies Hockey Club were delighted to play host to a Vets Day last Saturday at Crommelin Park for a mixture of both current squad members and past players of the club. There was a real range, with a number of players turning out at the weekend having first pulled on the red and green of the Dee back in the 70s. Despite the fact that some probably last picked up a stick when they last played, there was definitely no lack of competitive spirit to be found with the non-bibs squeaking a narrow 1-0 victory thanks to a Katie Donnelly goal in the second half.

Old friendships were renewed and many a vow was made that this would become a much more regular occurrence, though it remains to be seen if there were quite as many pledges when the stiffness and soreness kicked in on Sunday!
