The partnership between the Edinburgh club CALA and Fjordhus Reivers continues to grow and flourish with the amalgamated under 16s boys teams enjoying success.

Reivers’ Sam Prentice, Charlie Jack, Calum Arnott and Nicholas Henderson were selected to play against Inverleith at the end of last month with all four given plenty opportunity to contributed a great deal to the game which finished with an 8-0 victory to the CALA/Reivers squad. Jack scored twice with his second goal coming from a fantastically worked piece with Borders team mate Calum Arnott.

Last Sunday saw the joint team play Watsonians, who field three teams at this age group, and for Reivers Paul Goldie, Callum Murray, Toby Dawson and Mathew Comiskey joined Arnott and Jack in the squad. Again all the Borders boys played a significant part in the game with Jack again slotting two away in the 4-2 victory.

Janet Jack, Borders Hockey Development Officer, said: “I am confident that this success will see the continuation in growth of boys hockey in the Borders.”
