LYMM Hockey Club are celebrating their first win in a junior league.

The under 15s mixed-sex team won 21 and drew four of their 27 games played in the inaugural seven-a-side Greater Manchester Junior Hockey League over five dates at the University of Manchester's Armitage Sports Centre.

Teams from across the region took part and they found Lymm's strike rate tough to handle and their defence difficult to break down.

Lymm, whose players are aged 13 to 15, scored 57 goals and conceded only seven.

A maximum of three boys could be played in outfield positions at any one time in matches.

They led the table for the majority of the season.

Despite calling on 13 different players across the five dates, whatever combination was on the pitch gelled and played well as a team.

In the first four games they only had six players instead of seven, which is when they incurred their two losses, while in the first eight games they were missing their star keeper.

A club spokesman said: “It has been an absolute pleasure to watch these wonderful teenagers grow in skill and confidence over the last few months and an amazing team spirit.”
