Welsh Dragons O60 Trophy

Please find below a message from Bruce Perkins...

When we entered the Welsh Dragons into the Tournament Trophy O60 event at the World Cup in Barcelona we had more than enough interested players to make a squad.  However, that number has dwindled recently for various reasons and we now desperately need a few additional players.

Matches in the group stage are as follows:

  • Friday 22nd June v England LX
  • Saturday 23rd June v South Africa
  • Sunday 24th June v Alliance
  • Tuesday 26th June v Netherlands

Depending on group positions, play-offs will be on probably 2 days out of Wednesday 27th, Thursday 28th and Friday 29th June.

As you can see, there is some high quality hockey here at a fabulous setting in the Real Club de Polo and we need a strong squad to be competitive.  John Rowley-Conwy has worked hard to get to this stage and has arranged warm-up matches on Sunday 20th May at Windsor and Sunday 17th June at Stratford-on-Avon.

If anyone finds they are able to join John and the Dragons for some or all of the tournament, please contact John urgently on this email address.  Equally, if you have friends or club mates who might fancy joining us, please persuade them – "IT IS NOT essential in times of need for all members of the Dragons side to be Welsh qualified.  Such players formed an essential part of our squad at last year’s Europeans in Glasgow and some are returning this year as they enjoyed the hockey and the company so much!

With thanks in anticipation of some of you answering the call and lifting John’s spirits!

Many thanks Jon Rye (Chairman)
