World Grand Masters

Last month was the WGMA European Hockey Cup, held in Glasgow. In the Over 60s European Championships Mike Rudd represented England (who finished first) and Robin Davies and Bruce Perkins represented Wales who came 8th (although were a minute from making the semi-finals so I gather).

The England Grand Masters (EGMs) beat the Netherlands in a penalty shoot-out, to decide the final of the Over 60s European championships in Glasgow’s Commonwealth Games stadium after drawing 1-1 in normal time. They have thus retained the cup they won at Southgate in 2015. To reach the final, EGMs won all 4 of their pool games and then beat Germany 3-0 in the semi-final.  EGMs scored 27 goals (Mike Rudd 1 against Germany) and conceded 3.

I understand six games in eight days, which is a testament to their fitness levels and I looking forward to hearing more about it. Please do pass on your congratuations when you next see Mike and Robin.

Many thanks Brian Field (Communications Officer)
