A great pat on the back for all those that played for Kobras this Saturday at the Carnegie Tournament. With a very strong teams from Watsonians, Grange, Inverleith and Cala in addition to regular foes Carnegie and JHA it was a really strong competition and some really good hockey was played. At U10 we won three, drew one and lost two ending up 3rd in the pool of 5, all played well with David Leslie scoring some memorable goals and Alyssa Weir and Zoe McColl putting their limbs on the line in defence. Special mention also goes to Finlay McColl who played most of his games for a Kirkcaldy team that ended up 3rd in their pool. U12s faced some very strong teams and despite some great goals from Bart Kuijpers, Angus Montford and Fraser Banks amongst others could only manage 1 win their matches coming 4th in their pool of 5. At U14s the organisation and teamwork of the larger clubs was impressive but after a couple of losses we really fought hard to get wins over Cala and Kelso and emerged 4th in the pool of 6, I was really proud of the effort against the strong teams and the goal for super-sub Angus Montford against Cala got the biggest cheer from Kinross support.

The next tournaments are a Perthshire U10&U12 Tournament and National U14 Hockey Festival both on Sun 31st May. I will send out a list of those down to play, more will always be welcome and I can add extra teams to the Perthshire tournament if necessary.

Kobras Strips - I find I have very few Kobras tops left, if anybody has a Kobras club shirt could you dig it out and drop it in at training over the next couple of weeks.

Training as usual this week so hopefully you will all be able to come along.
