Youngster bags himself 10 goals in three games at Letchworth

Despite suffering three defeats in as many games, under-13 rink hockey players from Lynn scored plenty of goals when they travelled to Letchworth for an east of England tournament.

Playing the host outfit in their first game, Alfie Poppy scored the first goal for Lynn with three minutes remaining of the first half before going on to score three more after the break during a 9-4 defeat.

Some great defending came from captain Billy Davey and newcomers Grace Davey and Poppy Smith.
