Hockey player William Wright was in action for Lincolnshire under 13 boys’ team at the Rushmere Sports Centre, Ipswich on Sunday.

The Lincolnshire team were competing in the Eastern Inter-Counties finals against teams from, Essex, Suffolk, Norfolk, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire.

Despite having a much smaller squad than the other counties, the team competed well in all matches, winning against Norfolk and Bedfordshire, and drawing against Essex.

They lost narrowly to tournament winners Suffolk and came fifth overall.

William, playing in his usual left forward position, scored a cracking goal against Bedfordshire, his third against the same county in successive tournaments.
