It was Festival time at Highfields Hockey Centre in Nottingham on Sunday when teams who’d taken part in U14 Development Leagues locally had the chance to pitch themselves against new opponents from other parts of the country. With the 7 a-side format and matches on four pitches at the same time the games and goals came thick and fast!
