East Kilbride Hockey Club, sponsored by Mitchells Roberton Solicitors and Estate Agents, were in action this weekend with two hard fought performances against the Universities of Edinburgh and Glasgow respectively.
Both sets of students took early leads, but well worked goals in both games brought East Kilbride back into the game. A penalty save at one end and converted penalty at the other kept East Kilbride in contention against a tough Glasgow University side. Edinburgh University were certainly no walkover coming into the game sitting at the top of the league and proved to be a well organised unit.
It seems that the days of students spending all of their time in the Union are long gone as both teams were fit and on form. Clearly things have changed since my day!
On the plus side, I managed two goals of my own so I will have to look at my sponsorship contract to see if that entitles me to any performance bonus…not holding my breath.
