Aberdeenshire South Hockey Club played a North of Scotland Police Squad in mixed games held at Portlethen Academy over a two Tuesday evenings.
The games were part of the Police Squads build up to the World Police and Fire Games to be held in Belfast between the 1st and 10th August.
The two games were played out in a friendly atmosphere but of course with the competitive side still there.
Game one saw a 4-0 win for ASHC with goals coming from Scott McNab x 2, Robbie Wallis and Gavin McNab which was the reward for some good play.
The second game saw a stronger Police side and the game at times was very much from end to end.
Despite playing a stronger side the same scorers as the first game, Scott McNab x 2, Robbie Wallis and Gavin McNab, took the score to 4-0 with 10 minutes to go.
Two very late goals by the Police saw them come back into the game.
John Ritchie, captain of the Police Squad and a ASHC Club Member thanked ASHC for the tarm up games to help them get ready for the World Police and Fire Games.
He said: “A big thank you to ASHC for giving us the opportunity to play competitive games, we did improve as a team over the two games and we are looking forward to the rest of our programme and representing Scotland at the World Games in the mixed section.”
ASHC Vice Captain Robbie Wallis said of the games: “It was good to help John and his team out, the team really enjoyed the chance to play mixed hockey and the club wish the Police all our best wishes representing Scotland at the World Games.”
