YHA Cup Finals Weekend
yhalogoblue.jpgYHA Cup Finals Weekend
Many to thanks all teams, umpires and officials who produced one of our best Cup Finals weekends ever!
Seven matches were played, none went to penalty strokes, everyone played in true competitive cup hockey in a friendly atmosphere and we had a good and very vocal band of supporters for all the matches with over 100 people watching come of the matches at Sheffield HC on the Sunday.
The weather did its bit well with just a bit of, perhaps, too hot weather at times on Saturday at Halifax, and a touch of rain during the first game on Sunday, but otherwise reasonably hockey weather with not a bit of ice or snow in sight!
Sheffield University Bankers contested four finals, winning three: Women's Yorkshire Cup and Yvonne Horner Shield and Men's Masters A Div Cup; Driffield Men's 2s retained the Men's League Cup B and Boston Spa 3/4 provided yet another different winner of Men's League Cup C.
On Sunday Bradford 1 thwarted University of Hull 1's attempt to retain the Men's League Cup A trophy they won last season and Sheffield Hallam Women's 4 completed a league and cup double winning the Women's Division 5 Cup as well as finishing as Women's League Division 5 South Champions!
Special thanks go to the Umpiring team ably led by YHUA Chief Umpire Coach Barrie Pollard, who even showed his expertise hadn't waned by umpiring a couple of games himself, with Cup Final appointments not only providing good quality umpiring throughout, but using the event to bring on some promising younger umpires.
Our big thanks also go to Match Official Tracey Helliwell who officiated all three games on the main pitch at Halifax, and thanks also go to Alison McManus and Andy Pettigrew who between them made sure that the one match on the second pitch went without a hitch.
Finally, thanks go to both Halifax HC and Sheffield HC, two clubs who have hosted many Yorkshire events over the years, for their brilliant team of volunteers and superb event management, providing a great Cup Final atmosphere!
