Donaghadee Ladies Hockey Club were back on the pitch last week with an inter-club Reds v Whites match last Saturday. In bright sunshine and serenaded by the Party on the Pitch soundcheck happening at nearby Bangor Rugby Club, it was great to see not only lots of existing faces returning but a number of new recruits too. Perhaps inspired by the wonderful Gold medal won by GB Women’s Hockey the previous evening, there was plenty of good play on show from the Dee girls.
If you too have been inspired by the Olympic hockey, DLHC would love to hear from you; with two teams competing in Ulster Hockey leagues with players ranging in age from 15 to 50 (ish!) and plenty in the social calendar, there’s something for everyone. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info, or come along on Wednesday evenings, 7.30-9pm at Bangor Grammar.
