THE opening matches of a ladies summer hockey league were due to be played at Uppingham yesterday evening.
The five week league is hosted by Rutland Hockey Club at the Uppingham School with two Rutland teams battling against sides from Melton, Spalding, Market Harborough and Bourne Deeping Hockey Clubs.
The tournament forms part of the Rutland club’s pre-season preparations and coach Simon Cooper said: “If there are any ladies out there keen for a game (and especially goalkeepers) then please head down to Uppingham. Grab someone from the Rutland sides for a chat, or alternatively e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.”
Rutland Ladies were due to take on Rutland Youth in the opening round.
