The sessions run between 7:30pm and 9pm with up to 90 different players across the whole week.

They are the same format as previous, players being divided into teams and playing a round-robin style of mini half-pitch matches.

A spokeswoman for the club said: "The hockey was fun and competitive but mainly everyone has enjoyed just being back on the pitch seeing friends and team-mates."

The club is also running a 12-week junior programme on Monday nights from 6pm until July 12.

The club said: "The response has been overwhelming and very well received from both parents and juniors alike, who are just as delighted to be back on the pitch with their friends."
