Havering Hockey Club hosted a day of celebrations at Campion School on Sunday.

The club’s junior players were joined by Romford and Thurrock hockey club members to enjoy a morning of fun games at a Celebration of Hockey event at the school, in Wingletye Lane, Hornchurch.

More than 50 youngsters were split into three age groups and teamed up with players from each club to play in a series of friendly matches.

Lee Bennett, head of youth development at Havering Hockey Club, said: “I came up with the idea at the hockey finals day earlier this year where I sat and watched GB players playing against each other in a competitive match.

“It got me thinking about how the animosity always seems to be there in local teams derbies and that I didn’t want that for the minis developing and learning hockey.

“For me it was more important to get them playing matches against players of the same age and similar experience levels.”
