Winter Hockey league kicks off this weekend!!

This Saturday (September 28) sees the start of the new hockey season and after two seasons off to have a go at football, I’m back to join my old mates at Minehead Hockey Club. Unfortunately I won’t be making this weekend’s opening game, as during a friendly against Weston Super-Mare (Wednesday, September 18) I decided to stick my right foot in the way of an oncoming ball. After the game had finished I discovered that in being hit I’d broken my little toe and had some serious bruising!  So I’m out for week or so but can’t wait to get back involved. At least during the friendly I got my goal tally off to a start by opening the scoring in what turned out to be a 6-1 win.

As soon as I’m back on the pitch I’ll post some action reports and pictures, for now though I’ll strap up the foot and watch from the sidelines.

Good luck to everyone playing this weekend!
