Midlands Teams Finishing Positions

This was the last year of the 5 Regions competing as we are now one of 8 Areas so it is hoped that future tournaments will comprise 8 teams.

On behalf of the board of Midlands Hockey Ltd my thanks to all team captains, managers, coaches and players for your efforts in arranging trials and getting squads to compete during these difficult times. Tim L
