Large Gathering in Tilburg
The Superveterans tournament at Tilburg over the weekend of 26th/27th/28th April was used by many this year as preparation for the Grand Masters European Cup in June at Brasschaat. So instead of the informal festival of hockey that it was when it started a few years ago it was more a gathering of national squads plus others. Nevertheless the tournament was as enjoyable as ever with the usual big social event in the clubhouse on the Saturday evening.
In the 60+ men’s section, Arc Angels (the England 60+ squad) beat Germany 60+ A 3-0 in their final, and England completed the double when the England Ladies 60+ finished ahead of Alliance after a final series of pool matches. At 68+ level, Scottish Thistles won through to a final against Germany 70+ and came out winners with a narrow 1-0 victory.
All the results can be found on the tournament website.
