Kidd Wows the Kids
Nikki Kidd, the Scotland and GB international, paid a very welcome visit to the Club on Sunday 8th, to kick start our Club Open Day. She started with a ‘drag flick’ master-class for everyone, demonstrating her command of this key but difficult skill. Nikki chatted to young players and parents, signed hockey sticks and posed for photographs with everyone. Finally she participated in a few games, demonstrating why she’s a top class international.
Nikki was a member of the Scotland team that played in the European Cup tournament recently in Belgium. Indeed she played there against England and scored. She was playing for a university side last year, but has now joined Ladies’ National Premier Canterbury. So, we are sure she will be a regular local feature.
This was all part of the Club’s contribution to the National Open Day, sponsored by Harvester Restaurants. About 50 players turned up. 7-a-side teams were formed, enabling everybody to play each other. The tournament was won by the team led by Josh Littler. There were England Hockey watches and bracelets for all participants. Afterwards everyone retired to the clubhouse for a bar-b-q.
