On Saturday some Kelburne youngsters took part in a fun day of Hockey in George Square. Hosted by Scottish hockey the event was scheduled to build excitement for the men’s EuroHockey Championship II in Glasgow.
Play in the Square saw Kelburne take part in a six-aside U12 mini Euros tournament. The matches were played on an inflatable pitch while a second inflatable pitch offered the chance for people to come and try hockey in an iconic Glasgow location.
Hamish the Hockey Hippo was also in attendance as part of the build-up for the tournament. Kelburne faced teams from Clydesdale, Western Wildcats, Hillhead and great fun was had by all throughout the day.
The Men’s EuroHockey Championship II will be held at the Glasgow National Hockey Centre on 6-12 August 2017 and will feature Scotland, Wales, Switzerland, Czech Republic, France, Portugal, Russia, and Ukraine.
Tickets can be purchased at the gate each day. While season tickets are available in advance by going to the Scottish Hockey website.
