UKAFHA INDOOR HOCKEY TOURNAMENT 2016

 

Final results from UK Armed Forces Inter Services Indoor Hockey Tournament held in Aldershot at the Garrison Sports Centre.

Inter Commands:

After some excellent and close pools and Semi Finals, the Final was between RAF 1 and the Infantry. The RAF 1 beat the Infantry 4 – 2, winning the Inter Command. Both teams are through to the West Indoor on 9/10 Dec (details to follow from Terry Lees shortly)  

The REME also beat the Royal Marines  9 – 3 to win the Plate Final.

Well done to all the teams that took part, the Inter Commands is great for showcasing excellent Hockey in the various Corps/Branches of the Services. We hope you all had a good day!

Inter Services:
 
Masters
 
The tournament took place on the evening of Day 1, the Army played well against the RAF (3 – 2) however just lost out to the Navy losing with a final result of 3 – 6. The Navy beat the RAF 4 – 1 and so have won the Inter Services for their 2nd year running, congratulations to the Navy!
 
U25s
 
The Army had a great run out against the RAF beating them 13 – 2 which would be their saviour in the next game as they drew with the Navy 5 – 5. The Navy beat the RAF 6 – 5 and so due to goal difference the Army won the Inter Services for the 4th year running! The enthusiasm and commitment by all the young teams is excellent to see and we look forward to watching them play again next year and at the outdoors.
 
Ladies
 
Well fought by the Navy and RAF, however, the Army continue to dominate and beat the Navy 11 – 4 and the RAF 15 – 0. We look forward to the outdoors and seeing the RAF and Navy come fighting! Well done to the Army Ladies, winning for their 20th year in a row! We wish them the best of luck in the National League coming up.
 
Seniors
 
Unfortunately the Army lost out on both games to the Navy (3 – 5) and RAF ( 5 – 6) and all the games were very tight, you couldn’t tell at points who was going to win! However, in the end the RAF dominated and beat the Navy 6 – 3 making them winners of the Inter Services! Congratulations to the RAF, well fought with a great turnaround in the match against the Army at the end!
 
Please see below for all Pools with results, an even result for all the Services which is always good.
