Pupils Enjoy International Hockey Matches

  • School Children at Internation Hockey Match
Over 2,500 tickets given to local school children

Over 2,500 tickets were given out free to school kids across Scotland during the men’s 4 Nations and FIH women’s Champions Challenge held at Glasgow National Hockey Centre last week.

Scottish hockey had over 70 Schools attend the International hockey tournament and help cheer on the ten nations who competed from the likes of South Africa, USA, Argentina and of course Scotland.

Six East End based Schools, who are part of development activity of Scottish Hockey were given the fantastic opportunity of being announced on to the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth pitch and had their photo taken at half time, which will be signed by the Scotland Senior squads.

During the Wednesday match we had over 800 school pupils attend despite the wind and rain to help cheer on the senior women against Korea.

‘The crowd added a fantastic atmosphere to the tournament and really helped the team perform;’ said head coach of the senior women Gordon Sheperd.

Hyndland Secondary School and Castlemilk High School also got a chance to play a friendly match of hockey on the commonwealth pitch before they applauded on Spain as they took on Belgium which resulted in a win for Spain in running penalties.

"The kids have not stopped talking about it since we got back to school."
