Good Day for U12s and U14s

Saturday the 10th June was the day our U12s got a chance to play alongside their older club members in a festival held by Ellon hockey club. With school activities weeks prevailing getting the usual numbers was thought to be a challenge but GCW had the usual teams of 11 under 14s and 8 under 12s.

The under 12s had a great competitive morning playing against Ellon and winning all of their matches. The event was notable for the latest in the Walterson family to make their debut in Alix showing mum and dad how to score and get about the pitch. The 12s also featured newcomers Molly Spedding Also making their debut for the 12s were Molly Spedding  and Thea Aitken, Thea having just dried out from Thursday evening’s match at training.

The 14s had their own debutants in Susannah Grant and Jo Sharples. The 14s played 6 matches winning four and drawing two and only conceding one goal all morning.  Their final game saw them only needing a draw to emerge victorious but Sarah Anderson decided to settle all the young nerves by netting the winner in the final game.

Thanks go to Ellon Hockey Club for organising the day which went very smoothly.

Unders 12s Squad : Emily Harper,Iona Pirie, Alex Thomson, Thea Aitken, Alix Walterson, Molly Spedding, Isla Goodbrand and Ava Aimes.

Stirling Performance

Sunday the 4th June was the first date for some Under 14 club action in Stirling to be followed next Saturday 10th June in Ellon. Most of the youngsters who travelled were experiencing their first club action outside of Aberdeen and they certainly acquitted themselves well. Saturday was the busy day with two call offs and wit ha no show on the Sunday the squad was whittled down to 10 for the 8 a side games. The good news about this was that they all got enough pitch time to go home a little tired.


Under 12s Enjoy Primary School Qualifier

Rubislaw yesterday was the venue for the National Primary School Qualifier. Granite City Wanderers had two teams of youngsters entered ( 16 ), the only club entered among all the primary schools.

Ali Gentilucci and Sandy Keith looked after the teams and Alastair Hunter showed his umpiring skills. There were plenty of games for the youngsters some of who were playing their first ever games of hockey. I am pleased to say both our teams finished second in their group. It was also nice to see some of the school teams also with Granite City players featuring in their sides.

At the end of the day the goal was achieved as all left looking forward to the next event with smiles on their faces.
