Debut tournament for King’s Lynn’s youngest roller hockey players

Have your say

An exciting debut home tournament took place for King’s Lynn Roller Hockey Club’s youngest players, the under 11’s.

The young team welcomed Nancy Rutty (6) and Aaron Grant (9) in their first appearances for the club.

Additionally it was Lacey Vincent’s (8) debut game as goalkeeper.

The team was not disheartened after they lost their first game 3-7 to Peterborough.

In their second game, the team came back fighting.

William Dickerson and Imogen Senter worked well together.

They formed a solid defence and created some opportunities for Miles Hovell and Alfie Poppy to score, enabling them to beat Cambridge 5-3.

Despite the persistence of the home side, in a nail biting third game, the strong Herne Bay team clinched the winning goal in the final few minutes, resulting in a 3-4 loss for Lynn.

The team’s final game of the day was played as a friendly due to the ages of some of the opposing players.

The experienced Ely team took an early lead, with the score 0-3 at half-time.

However, Lynn battled relentlessly with Miles Hovell netting two fantastic goals in the second half.

Unfortunately Ely took the game with a final score of 2-4.

The team would like to thank MKM Building Supplies for their continued support.
