With the cancellation of their league fixture last weekend, Arran Hockey Club took advantage of the fine weather to hold an inter-club training game between the ladies, gents and juniors.

One of the organisers said: ‘On what had to be the best day of the hockey year so far, a great, fun friendly inter-club game gave some of the ‘old’ junior members a taste of adult game play – and they played brilliantly. Well done Eva, Julia and Jaime. You were amazing. And thanks to everyone who came along to give them such a workout.’

The league match scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday) has also been cancelled so another training day is planned at Ormidale astroturf, starting at 11am.
