NSW brings back a good haul from the National Vets Champs

Held over the period 5th - 19th July 2008, the just completed Australian Mens Veterans Hockey Championships, resulted in 5 NSW teams returning home victorious. With NSW featuring in 6 of the 9 finals, the Blues were competitive to the end.

The NSW teams to make the finals were: -

  • Over 40's (A Division)
  • Over 40's (B Division)
  • Over 45's
  • Over 50's (A Division)
  • Over 50's (B Division)
  • Over 55's
The Over 40's (A Division) final was settled in sudden death Penalty Strokes, and unfortunately resulted in a victory to Victoria. A heart-breaking way to lose.
