Garstang Ladies Hockey Club’s open day at UCLan Sports Arena was a huge success.

The day kicked off with a junior tournament, with more than 40 girls completing in a seven-a-side competition.

Head coach Dave Gee said: “There was some fantastic talent on show combined with some debutants completely new to the game.

“It was uplifting to see so many girls new to the 
sport.

“It is not only encouraging for the club membership, but the sport as a whole.”

The club day – which was supported by the supermarket Booths – had a mixture of families, new, existing and returning players taking 
part.

Garstang’s new kit – sponsored by Guys Hamlet and SuperSports of Preston – was on show too.

And last week, Garstang were awarded the England Hockey ‘Clubsfirst’ accreditation in recognition of its commitment to providing a safe, child-friendly environment and effective club policies.
