The U16 boys started the North East Indoor Hockey Championships with a very tough game against Egglesclffe School. At half time it was 1-1 with some good chances from both teams. In an eventful second half, Egglescliffe scored 4 on the break and won the game 5-1. The second game was very closely fought between Richmond and Hall Cross.  The U16 boys started the North East Indoor Hockey Championships with a very tough game against Egglesclffe School. At half time it was 1-1 with some good chances from both teams. In an eventful second half, Egglescliffe scored 4 on the break and won the game 5-1. The second game was very closely fought between Richmond and Hall Cross. Having been 3-0 down at half time, Richmond battled back strongly and played some excellent hockey bringing the score back to 3-3. With chances for both sides Hall Cross managed to sneak a last minute goal to win the game 4-3. The third game for Richmond was again Hymers and again the boys played some excellent hockey capitalising on our penalty corners and fast counter attacking play, winning the game 3-1. The final game was against Yarm which was another tight affair which Richmond scoring first and Yarm scoring straight back. In the second, half Richmond scored again making it 2-1 with 2 minutes to go. Again a last minute penalty corner game Yarm the chance to equalise which they took well finishing the game in a well-balanced 2-2 draw. The U18 boys’ team started their indoor campaign much the same as the U16s with a 5-1 defeat to a very strong Egglesclife School, with a goal from Jack Devlin for Richmond. The second game was a slightly easier game but knowing we needed to win by 9 goals to go through to the semi-final added extra pressure and at half time only being 1-0 up, with another goal from Jack Devlin, made it very difficult with 2 great chances saved on the line by the Bradford defence. In the second half, Richmond relaxed on the ball and kept their composure to score 4 more goals, 2 coming from Sam potter, one from Jack Farnell and one solo goal from Harry Davies. Overall, two good days out and two good team performances from the Richmond boys.
