St Neots Hockey Club were able to enjoy inter-club games once more with four contests.

The ladies' second team travelled to Sandy but the well-drilled hosts gained a 4-0 win, despite plenty of second-half pressure from Saints including five short corners.

The men’s first-team followed them onto the pitch and a cracking contest ensued, ebbing and flowing until two late goals for Sandy gave them a 5-3 win.

The St Neots' goals came from Danny Rowland-Cox and a double for Luca Moor but club captain Ben Seaber thought it was simply "great to be out playing again, this young side has huge potential".

On Sunday, the U16 Boys host Bury St Edmunds and the slightly-older visitors just had enough experience to clinch a 2-1 success, the solitary home goal coming from the youngest player on the pitch, 13-year-old Harry Pybus.

The victory could have been by a bigger margin had defender Sam Evans not saved one goal on the line and then leapt to deflect another shot moments later.

The final game saw a seasoned Saints side play Cambridge City in an U18 Championship Cup match.
