Last week the best U21 talent from around the country was on show at North Harbour Hockey Stadium and with the next generation of elite talent competing against one another there was a lot to be excited about.
After losing their opening game, the Capital U21 men stormed back to claim gold on the final day with a 5 0 win over Southern capping off an impressive week.
National titles are hard to come by and a lot needs to go right in order to finish on top on the last day. We would like to congratulate the Capital U21 players and team management on a successful 2019 campaign. A special congratulations to MX coach and good mate, Lochie Paton
who was in the thick of the action all week. We hope you and the team took time to celebrate.
The Capital U21 women had mixed results finishing a respectable 5th. Two MX team members, Estelle Macadre and Georgie Peterson were part of that side and enjoyed the learning experience.
Well done to all our MX coaches!
