Councillors fund hockey goals

A hockey club is benefitting from new goals thanks to three South Holland Councillors.

Hockey goals

They contributed a combined £750 towards the goals which will be used in competitive matches and training sessions by the club's teams.

The club, based at Glen Park in Surfleet, regularly takes part in fund raising initiatives to help maintain their artificial pitch and playing facilities.

It has eight senior league teams (five men's and three ladies) and provides regular coaching and playing opportunities for over 100 local youngsters.

In a joint statement, the councillors said: "We are happy to support Spalding Hockey Club, as it does such a great job for sport and fitness locally, plus it is raising the profile of South Holland on a sporting stage." 

Fred Morris, Chairman of Spalding Hockey Club, said: "Everyone at the club is extremely grateful to the councillors for helping us out.

"The goals are state-of-the-art and wouldn't look out of place in an Olympics match. Our next project is to install pitch-side dugouts and shelter for spectators.

"We have to continually raise money just to keep the club going and maintain our facilities, so any help along the way comes in very handy."

South Holland Councillors have designated ward budgets which they use to help all manner of community groups and causes across the district.
