Lindum Hockey Club was formed in the June of 2015 through the amalgamation of Lincoln Hockey Club and Lincoln Roses Hockey clubs. After a successful first season sharing purpose built facilities at the Lindum sports ground, members of both clubs saw the benefit of coming together to create a centre of excellence for hockey in Lincolnshire.

On a mild afternoon that fell someway short of the record high temperature of 34.8 °C recorded in August 1990 (for Lincoln), Adel travelled off the back of fine win the previous week. The match was already billed as “season defining” by the ever enthusiastic Holford.

The match started with a high tempo befitting the quick surface, with both sides attempting the breakdown the opposition. Some early ‘half’ chances went the way of Adel only for Lindum to take the lead against the run of play. Adel levelled when Bish slotted home a well disguised finished from a short corner. The remainder of the half was played out with both midfields cancelling each other out.

With some technical tweaks at half time, Adel started the second half in devastating fashion with Bish storming down the right to put it on a plate for the well positioned Miles within the first minute of the half. Momentum was on our side and with the Lindum left back deciding to stop even marking Bish, Adel dominated. Stroomer added a third from another well worked short corner and a fourth coming from Miles following Holford’s successful attempt at the world’s longest J run.

Other highlights included;

· Boag made a tackle

· Simon Taylor avoided a well-deserved yellow card

· Miles remembered a towel

Alex Cooper’s only other review coming a year back when he gave Bakehouse94 5 stars (apparently Maxine is a cake genius). Thanks Alex!

I am happy in the knowledge this match report will save me £1 per week which I can put towards my anger management classes.
