Phoebe Bolton, 11, who plays for Preston Hockey Club, organised a fund-raising match, called CF - A Game of Life, at the club’s grounds, in aid of Cystic Fibrosis Trust.
The tournament featured seven-a-side teams in competitive and non-competitive games, as well as stalls selling cakes, a beat the goalie activity and a raffle.
Phoebe has been sponsored by hockey stick supplier KABO, based in Kent, with shirts sponsored by Next Goal Wins.
Personal trainers from Nuffield Health provided a warm-up.

Her mum, Sharron, of Walton-le-Dale, said: “It was a great day and the weather stayed kind and only teased us with a small shower.
“We have so far raised £1,200 for Cystic Fibrosis Trust and crowned Southport Boys the Game of Life 2018 champions.”
Phoebe, who attends Brownedge St Mary’s RC in Bamber Bridge, said: “I will not let my condition stop me from doing anything, especially hockey.
“I will never let my condition control my life and hopefully one day, I will be the first cystic fibrosis girl to play for England. “Hockey is my life and always will be.”
