This is a message from Adam Smith captain and goalkeeper of Basingstoke 1st X1 following the game on Sunday.
On behalf of the team and all the supporters that travelled up yesterday, I would like to say a massive thank you. From the moment we arrived we felt welcome and were offered help and assistance with anything we needed.
The game of hockey itself was a great game and it was a shame that it had to go to the lottery of penalty flicks.
Spalding are the best team we have played all season and it was a very enjoyable game. Your players and supporters were also very friendly and I had a chat with some both before and after the game.
Thanks again and best of luck for next season and your Club’s continuing future.
Basingstoke Men’s 1st X1 Captain
