We have been sending out newsletters to the juniors section this season to try and keep everyone up to date with what’s happening in our thriving juniors section. You can view the latest newsletters on the website here.
The last junior training session of 2018 is this Sunday (16th December) and we’re having a Christmas party! We hope you can all come along and join in.
We’ll be back on Sunday 6th January at the usual times.
Unfortunately there will be NO training this Sunday for the U12 and U14 teams, but there will be training for the U10s and U8s. This is due to pitch availability. It is particularly important for the U10s to train as they have a tournament the following week to prepare for.
Our U18 boys will be playing in the county round of the national indoor hockey tournament, starting at 11.15am. If you are at training, please do grab a coffee and watch them from the sports bar – they would love to have some support from IES Juniors
We know how keen our juniors are for Sunday training- but we hope you enjoy the extra hour in bed this weekend!
Junior training starts on Sunday 9th September for U8, U10 and U12.
U14 training starts on Sunday 16th September.

Comments from Tony Burch:
“Really proud of Ipswich East Suffolk U16 boys today representing Suffolk in the regional tournament today. The first game could have gone either way against City of Peterborough with Peterborough edging it 3-2. With no break IES then took on the hosts Norwich City and were punished for a slow start with 4 goals going in the the first half. The second half was much better with the final result being 5-1 to Norwich. The final game against Colchester saw IES playing some nice hockey to run out 5-0 winners. Big thanks goes to Ros Conway and Sam Oakley for all their effort and coaching this year. Well done boys!!!”
