Bromley and Beckenham Hockey Club Junior Girls visited Rotterdam over the Easter weekend to compete in a very competitive tournament attracting teams from all over Europe.
The girls competed very evenly with much bigger clubs from Antwerp, Munich, Berlin and the host team from Rotterdam. Whilst not all the results went the way of BromBecks the spirit was fantastic and the standard of play improved game by game. There were many memorable moments over a packed weekend of exciting hockey culminating in an epic sudden death penalty shoot-out against Munich. With the BromBecks keeper, Saffy Wood, only conceding two goals in seven attempts the victory was eventually secured with some cool finishing from Megan Wallis prompting a jubilant victory celebration.
They was also plenty of fun off the pitch with a hotly contested game of Aero tag, a disco on the Saturday night and all rounded off with a team meal and prize giving on Sunday evening.
A weekend the team will remember for many years to come.
The girls are very grateful for all the support from parents, organisers, fundraisers, sponsors and the club’s support for making the tour happen.
