Spalding Hockey Club hosted the second of five primary school tournaments scheduled for this school year at Glen Park, Surfleet on Friday.

Thirteen teams from eight local primary schools competed with six sides in the upper tier and seven in the beginners section.

In the upper tier, John Harrox A once again got off to a strong start with wins over Eye Primary (3-0) and Monks House (1-0).

But a very strong performance from Boston-based Tower Road A contained the favourites in a goalless draw in their third game.

In their final match, Harrox went quickly into a three goal lead but Gosberton Risegate fought back with typical determination to score twice and set up an exciting finish.

Eye Primary recovered from their first game setback to record three wins over Monks House (1-0), St Thomas’ (3-0) and Tower Road A (3-0) to clinch second place.

Gosberton Risegate, having moved up from the beginner section in tournament one, bagged third place with wins over Tower Road A (1-0) and St Thomas’ (2-1) and drew (1-1) with a late gasp equaliser against Monks House.

In the beginner section, Tower Road B took the honours with three wins over St Norbert’s (2-0), Pinchbeck East (1-0) and John Harrox C (3-0) but were held to a goalless draw by Gosberton Academy B team who finished in second place.

It was an all round excellent day for Gosberton Academy B team that not only pipped their own A team by a point but were unbeaten and recorded wins over Pinchbeck East (2-1) and John Harrox C (2-0).

All the matches were excellently controlled by young volunteer umpires from Spalding Hockey Club.

Tournament three is scheduled for Friday, February 4, at Glen Park.

It is expected that three teams that missed this tournament due to covid will be attending and, with interest being shown from other local schools, this could take the number of teams close to the maximum of 20 in this format.
