Sporty youngsters from across Berkshire took part in a tournament at Slough Hockey Club yesterday.

The club in Upton Court Road hosted the non-competitive mixed under-10s games.

A total of eight teams, from Maidenhead, Slough, Newbury, Henley and Reading, took part.

"It was a fantastic day," said organiser Surjit Sandhu.

The tournament was followed by the Chiltern Under-12s Division finals.

Slough under-12s boys team beat Wycombe 1-0, and then Amersham and Chalfont 4-0 to win the league.

Head junior coach Nadia Amin said: "It is a brilliant success for the club. It shows the hard work of the coaches and management team is paying off."

The club is run entirely by volunteers and has teams from under-eights up to seniors.

All of the teams now have a coach of their own.

"At the start of the season in September we had approximately 80 children on the books and now we have over 120," said Nadia.

The increase in numbers has meant the club has been able to increase the number of teams they have.

For the first time this year, they have an under-16s girls and an under-16s boys team.
