After a thoroughly enjoyable debut season last year, the Basingstoke Hockey "mini-vets" will take to the pitch against Wycombe on Sunday at 13:30 at Down Grange. A superb event for participants and spectators following the previous evening's pub golf social.
Last season Basingstoke's over 35s lost in the first round of the Cup 5-2 to Epsom who went on to reach the semi-finals, while Wycombe joined Basingstoke in the Plate losing out in their first match to Horsham.
Basingstoke eventually lost to St Albans in the quarter finals of the Plate and St Alban's went on to win the competition beating Wimbledon 3-1 in the final last April. Wimbledon had beaten none other than Wycombe on route to their final berth.
The bar will be open and I'm sure there will be plenty of entertainment on offer, so come and support pitch side or from the conservatory if weather requires it.
