Sorry its taken me a day to get round to typing these up. So we had a glorious day, 7 enthusiastic teams to make the final tournament of the 2007-08 UK hockey league season a roaring success. Prior to the tournament the LUNI’s and the EMU’s were tied at the top of the league with a number of other battles being fought throughout the rankings. So to cut a long story short at the end of 7 hours of hockey. The LUNI’s topped the tournament and so have clinched the seasons league (by the skin of their teeth ). I’ll type up the full positions later but If I remember it was Luni’s first, EMU second, Tholthorpe & Scratch (joint 3rd) and then my memory gets a bit vague.
So many thanks to everyone for coming and making the day a great success, huge congratulations to the LUNI’s, prevailing after a hard fought and long season and bring on the 2008/09 season - we’re planning on hosting a refereeing training/ scratch tournament towards the back end of August so that we can get a consistent level in the refereeing so that should be more sun soaked hockey oh and yes as Dan said, Southampton did properly win their first match in a league tournament so well done to them.
And after a bit more “technical wizzardry” heres the table. The first results column includes scratch for tournament positions, the second second doesn’t for league positions. On thing I forgot to mention was the stick breakage attrition rate, in one game I believe Sheffield - Southampton I think that five sticks were broken and probably two or three more over the course of the day - must have been weakended by the glorious weather.
And I can only apologise for the atrocious formatting.
