Juniors Notice for Sunday 25th November

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

IES U16 Boys Regional Tournament Results

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!!!”

IES Christmas Party Helps the Homeless

IES juniors and parents enjoyed a great time at their annual Christmas Party day. In spite of a heavy frost we managed to move everything indoors and all age groups from U8’s to U16’s enjoyed some indoor hockey. After the run around all our juniors and parents enjoyed party food which included candy floss and popcorn from love all occasions. Many thanks to all the coaches, managers and volunteers for all your help this year.
The parents provided plenty of food and it was suggested that some of the left over unopened food be donated to the Tesco Christmas Food Bank which I think everyone will agree is a great thing to do.
We hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year!
