Langa Hockey Club remains upbeat despite ther 5-1 drubbing by a touring Dutch side Hurley Hockey last week.

The club’s spokesman Phumzile Malotana said their players have learnt a lot from their clash and were gearing themselves for the coming season.

“Hurley is one of the finest teams in the world and we are priviledged to have rubbed shoulders with them,” said Malotana.

After their match, Hurley Hockey Club conducted coaching clinics for youngsters in the area.

“You could say hockey was a winner on the day because we all learnt something from each other,” he said.

Malotana said they were now preparing for the coming season which starts on April 2.

“Everyone is raring to go, the girls teams, the juniors and seniors can’t wait to play competitive hockey,” he said.

He said the focus was on growing women’s hockey this year.

“We invite all girls and women to join our club,” he added.

Club captain Lungile Tsolekile said the team was on a mission to raise funds for the travelling fees of the junior teams.

“We want to engage the community to support these young players.

“We will be collecting as little as one rand from the public when they attend our games,” he said.
