The tournament was to be played at the new ‘Ellis’ astroturf at Shobnall Fields (where Mr Meir plays his hockey for Burton). The new venue added to the excitement. 7 a side on three pitches across the ‘Ellis’ with support from Burton Hockey club and East Staffs Sport Partnership. We had a Rangemore team and the other being a federated team in which some of our children joined forces with Needwood. The tournament was held in good spirits and the rain managed to hold off too. 16 teams entered the competition and Rangemore were placed into a tough group along with teams from Thomas Russell and John of Rolleston. Working had, showing great team spirit and harnessing our skills we remained unbeaten throughout the group phase and ended up winning our group. A fantastic achievement, as we beat a few teams with regular hockey players and even county representatives. Our Federated team too had success and managed to qualify from the group phase as Best runner up. Both Teams made it to the Semi Finals!! Rangemore were eventually beaten by the eventual winners, but not before taking them to extra time.
