Howard, Davies and Foad make their Men’s first XI debuts

Three young players, all part of the club’s successful junior hockey teams for some years, made the big step up with their debuts for the first team today.


Scott Howard and Leo Davies (left and middle) are just 17, with the third Nathan Foad (right) now 19 years old.  All three aquitted themselves well in the cup game at Long Sutton and indicated the strength in depth in the club at the moment.  All have been regulars in the Men’s 3rd team for the last couple of years, and showed that they will not let anyone down if called up again.

On the day, Long Sutton provided a tougher than expected test for City of Peterborough.  The result was a 4-3 win, with goals from relative “veterans” – Shane Vincent, Stuart Biggs, Ben Read and James Gunthorp.
