Congratulations to the U8s, who’s innovative short corner routine booked them a place in the NOW Hockey Challenge Final, which featured three teams from across the UK.

Only the most original and inventive routines were picked for the final three, with the winner enjoying the opportunity for their team to be hosted at the NOW: Pensions Nations Cup at Reading Hockey Club on April 10, plus a VIP coaching session for the whole team.

The shortlist included the Camberley and Farnborough U8 side, Lansdown Hockey Club and the University of Bristol Men’s Hockey Club.

Despite massive support from the club, which saw votes cast by retweeting, liking and favouriting links to the video, CandF just lost out to the University of Bristol Men’s Hockey Club.


Thanks to everyone who voted to support them – the video has seen a massive 2145 views on YouTube and secured over 900 votes. Well done to Ali, Keri and Matt for their hard work to get the U8s to the final of the competition and to the U8s themselves for putting together a fantastic short corner routine!
