HOCKEY: Hawick Borders Fjordhus took part in the latest instalment of the Borders Hockey Festival series at Tweedbank.
The team, coached by Ruth Hounam, played six non-competitive games, with girls and boys aged 8-12. The club is one of many in the local area that is part of the Border Hockey Development Programme.
“They have fun, and we don’t record any scores,” explained Ms Hounam.
Tracey Sharp, whose daughter Jenny, aged 11 and a pupil at Drumlanrig school, plays for the team, said the club, which has more than 20 members, plays an important role in children’s development. “Because the children are from different schools, it encourages them to make friends,” said Mrs Sharp. “It’s something different, especially for the boys, who normally play football and rugby.”
