Former Romford youngsters Tommy Huggett and Danny Jackson were both on target as the England under-13 ice hockey team won their first match in Canada.

The squad flew out on Wednesday and, after having little time to get over their jet-lag, skated to a 6-0 success over their Australian rivals in an exhibition match in Quebec.

Chafford pupil Huggett, who now plays his club hockey for Guildford, struck twice in the victory after being named as an assistant captain.

Marshalls Park student Jackson, a forward at Chelmsford, added a single marker to the tally while playing alongside Royal Liberty pupils and three more former Romford club members in Brad Windebank, Ewan Hill and Daniel Hitchings.

England begin their World Pee-Wee Championship campaign with a match against the San Diego Junior Gulls in the International C Division at the Pepsi Colisee today.
