REIVERS HOCKEY CLUB duo Paul Conkie and Colin Stockdale capped their successful season last weekend by representing Scotland at over-45 level in the veteran home internationals, held in Belfast.

Unfortunately, the results did not go their way.

Scotland lost 4-1 to a very strong England side and were very unfortunate to lose 2-1 to Ireland and 1-0 to Wales after some very hard-fought and exciting games.

Conkie told TheSouthern: “It was a great way to end our season – winning our league and the District plate was special.

“This was special, too, in a different way, but it was a shame we were not able to get a win.”

Stockdale added: “It is nice to think that we play a standard of mens hockey at the Reivers, that allows us to be selected for these events.

“We are now both looking forward to the World Masters event in Singapore in October.”
