Paul Conkie of the Fjordhus Reivers men’s hockey squad returned from Rotterdam this week after competing for Scotland at over-45 level in the Hockey Masters World Cup.

Paul played in six games, and while the Scots suffered heavy defeats to hosts Netherlands (9-0), England (5-1) and France (6-1), the highlights for the Borderer were scoring in a tight game against New Zealand, before losing 3-2, netting in a 3-0 win over Russia and notching the winner in a 2-1 victory against Wales in the final game. A great effort from Paul to score three times, from a player who normally plays in defence for the Reivers.

These results allowed the Scots to finish 10th overall.
