The 2s had their second game of the season on Saturday, against Bluehearts. We largely had the same body of men as the previous week, but welcomed back Nick and Will.

The “new look” fourth team faced the second league game of the season with another “new look” fourth team. Last week we travelled with 16, this week it was to be just the trusty 11.

‘Too hot for hockey’ was the cry before the game, and with only 12 players to share the 70 minutes of exertion, we were going to be putting in a shift in the heat.

Berko 5s started the season with a number of new players, both young and 'not quite so young', together with the usual old codgers.
