We’ve had an email from Glyn Thomas, captain of the over 70s Welsh hockey team, to say that they will be in the Newcastle area of NSW for the Masters Hockey Tournament 2nd to 13th May http://www.wgmaworldcup2016.com/
It would be great if people in the area could get along and support the Welsh teams. There are over 60s, over 65s and over 70s teams. How impressive would it be to see Welsh flags fluttering in the crowds, but if you don’t have a flag you could always wave a leek
And some of the players are Welsh speakers, so you might get a chance for a quick conversation or two in Welsh!
I’m waiting to hear from Glyn how they got on in the Bronze playoff. This was from the night before:
The three Grand Masters teams went out tonight for a meal and though the Welsh Over 60s and the Welsh Over 65s teams have finished all their games they will come and support us in the morning to see if the first ever Welsh Over 70s Hockey Team can get a bronze medal for third place in the World Cup.
Then we sang We’ll keep a welcome, Cwm Rhondda, Delilah and finally Mae Hen Wlad fy Nhadau to rapturous support from the other diners!
