With great excitement the Felixstowe Academy Year 9 Boys Hockey Team took part in their first ever hockey fixture against Thomas Mills High School, producing an excellent performance in driving rain.
With the Academy squad depleted due to injuries, our players put in a terrific performance against a full strength Thomas Mills team.
Ronnie Bullock in goal was faultless throughout making some excellent saves, whilst the defensive trio Matt Scallion, David Lies and Charlie Smith were brilliant keeping all opposition attacks at bay.
Our midfield of Vincent Ramizolla, Keanu Turner and George Bright worked tirelessly in both supporting attack and defence, matching Thomas Mills even with two players less! Up front Adam Hart and Tom Boggs worked hard closing defenders down and both helped out in defence when needed.
I was extremely pleased with the way the boys worked as a team, and I know they were very happy with a point. On another day could have secured all three as Keanu Turner and Adam Hart both went close when in good position. Overall a draw was a fair result. Well done all an excellent performance.
