Louth Hockey Club Under 14s travelled to Lincoln earlier this month to compete in a district tournament.

Their first game pitted them against the hosts Lindum Hockey Club, and an Esme Trotter goal gave Louth a narrow 1-0 victory.

Louth’s next game came against Sleaford where Max Greenfield scored from a tight angle to help them to another 1-0 win.

A 4-0 defeat to Spalding Lions followed, but Louth battled back with a 0-0 draw against Lindum’s B team shortly after.

The team then lost 2-0 to Bourne Deeping before coming up against a tough Long Sutton side in their final match.

Louth fell to a 2-0 defeat despite producing a very good display.

Overall the team performed well and were unfortunate not to get more out of the games they played.
