Hitchin’s popular Blueharts Hockey Club had a busy weekend with seven wins, a draw and only two defeats across its adult teams on Saturday.

But how many people know the club also has a thriving youth section with more than 150 girls and boys representing the Lucas Lane-based side?

Sunday was a hectic day for all the Blueharts ‘minis’ turning out for the U8, U10, U12 and U14 age groups.

The talented kids competed in matches throughout the county with many making their debut – which is testament to the successful youth set-up at Blueharts.

Dedicated coach and passionate hockey man and Blueharts stalwart Sean Storey told CometSport: “It has been heartening to see so many girls taking an interest in hockey.

“Their team spirit and high standard of play has been great to see.

“It’s a pleasure for both myself and fellow coach Sam Addison to coach them.

“Well done to all the girls – the future is bright for Blueharts ladies hockey.”
