A first for Andover Hockey Club, celebrating County selection for Senior Club members, Guy Panszczyk and John Priestley–Cooper for Hampshire Over 60’s.
In the Autumn both Guy & John were selected to play against Gloucestershire and Herefordshire in the first round of the Hampshire Over 60's Cup.
The game was held at Winchester Hockey Club and this fixture was expected to be tough due to Gloucestershire and Herefordshire being finalists in last year’s competition. In spite of this, it proved to be a close fought game with John scoring on his debut, however, this unfortunately was not enough and Hampshire eventually lost 3-1 and were knocked out of the Cup competition.
A consolation though was that having reached this stage of the competition, Hampshire were now competing in ‘The Plate’. The quarter-finals were played in January, another good contest but sadly Hampshire did not progress.
Commenting Guy & John said “We are extremely proud of being selected to play hockey for Hampshire over 60s and importantly representing Andover at this level. “
