Blueharts were the only club to have three teams competing as they hosted the U8 Hertfordshire tournament at Hitchin Boys’ School, with 37 Under 8’s representing Blueharts across five teams – 14 of them making their debut.

U8s Lead Coach Nikki Baxter said “It was great to welcome more than one hundred six to eight-year-olds in 16 teams competing in seven hockey clubs at the tournament.

“The Blueharts teams all played brilliantly, there were lots of goals scored and saved. A big thanks goes to the parents and coaches, this type of event could not take place without them.”
