Stoke Green Hockey Club hosted their annual six-a-side hockey tournament on Saturday, despite a late setback with the venue.

It was the second year running of the tournament which consisted of a round-robin between five teams.

The teams consisted of a diverse level of talent with several junior players some of which new to playing hockey.

The final between the 'Saturday Strollers' and 'Pink Panthers' was a closely fought game with the Pink Panthers coming back from being two goals down to level the game to 2-2. 

A 'special' penalty shoot-out then followed - penalties in this case were single push shots to be taken from an acute angle of the open goal.

Jasraj Singh was the sole scorer winning the tournament for the Saturday Strollers.

The tournament was held in good spirits and welcomed friends and family supporters.

Club chairman Kuljit Bhachu commended the efforts of club members, adding: " Everyone got involved to ensure the day was a success despite some minute setback related to Astro pitch hire not being playable at Langley Grammer School. It was a fun tournament and great to see local newcomers trying out hockey which is a testament to the ethos of community hockey.

"A special thanks to Ms Alpa Shah of 'Travel In Style' travel agents and Jatin & Nitin of Alfa Hockey India - who have kindly sponsored kit for the forthcoming season."

Stoke Green Hockey Club will embark on their South Central Thames Division 1 league campaign on September 23.
