Hockey ladies tackle big race

FOUR ladies from North Notts Ladies Hockey Club’s first XI are attempting to run Nottingham’s Robin Hood Half Marathon on Sunday, 11th September.

Leaving their sticks at home for the gruelling run are Holly Whittaker, Dionne Love, Clare Faulkner and Michelle Slack.

Said Holly: “We are hoping to raise money, through sponsorship, for our team as rising pitch, equipment, travel and coaching costs are making hockey an expensive sport to play and it is therefore losing its popularity with both the young and older players.

“Anyone can contact me on 07725 900475 for more information regarding sponsorship or just the club in general.”
