Blackpool’s junior team entertained a strong Preston junior squad in their first fixture of the season.
The game was played with a positive attitude and great effort from a new team playing against players in some cases 4 years their senior.
Despite losing 3-0 there were some excellent debuts for many of the Blackpool players, Sam Robinson and Kieron Johnson, both year 7, to name two, and Josh Payne and Chris Pickles from year 9.
This proves that the future prospects for Blackpool Hockey Club are looking good.
Both clubs contributed to a good game, with supporters and parents thoroughly entertained. Well done to all.
