Hockey season ends early
Updated: Jul 1, 2021
WEDDERBURN have withdrawn their men’s and under 15 sides from the North Central hockey season.
The men’s team played their final game of the season last Saturday while the women's side will continue and defeated top side Charlton who had not been beaten this season. (Our print edition incorrectly stated the men's side had won. Our apologies for the error).
North Central Hockey Association had agreed that teams could play seven-a-side on a three-quarter field to assist clubs struggling with player numbers.
However, the reduced requirements had still been a challenge for the Redbacks, club officials said.
The Redbacks’ women’s side will continue the season but the call has gone out for players with that team too.
The club said training would continue at 6pm Thursdays for all age groups to continue to develop skills and be ready for the 2022 season.
Laura Van de Wetering is coaching all three teams.
