Towards the back-end of 2015, Luton Town HC, visited local primary school, Denbigh Primary School, with the ambition to introduce the pupils to hockey and to create a long standing hockey delivery program within the school.
The start of a new term in 2016 gave the young pupils their first taste of hockey through an afterschool club, proudly supported by England Hockey and Appex 360. The afterschool was a massive success with pupils turn up in the 20-30’s each week. To conclude the first term and bring an element of friendly competition, Denbigh hosted an Intra House Hockey tournament.
The final between Eagles and Scorpions was held on Friday 26th February saw a guest appearance from Tricia Murphy, our vice-chair (LTHC). It turned out to be a tight game between Eagles and Scorpions with Eagles edging it by one goal to earn 100 house points.
Pupils were given handouts at the end of the game with details of sessions at LTHC furthering our link with the school. Tricia named Jamiur Rahman (5DC) as man of the match for his control and effective use of his hockey skills. Eagles were presented with the silverware to the delight of the team that had secured the win.
Well done to all the year 5 sports vice captains for organising the teams and Haaris Maqsood (5AB) for umpiring and choosing ‘Teamwork’ as the sporting value for the games focus. The year 6 sports captains would have been proud of the vice captains as they usually organise the competitions but were enjoying their trip to Harry Potter World.
