Thun­der­sticks are go

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Looklocal -

SOME talented lo­cal lads have been an­nounced for the WA Thun­der­sticks team which will com­pete in the 2014 Aus­tralian Hockey League.

Eigh­teen ath­letes have been se­lected for the AHL which will take place at the State Hockey Cen­tre in Gepps Cross, South Aus­tralia from Oc­to­ber 4-11.

A five-ath­lete strong Train-On squad has also been named along­side the 18.

This year’s AHL com­pe­ti­tion will see the in­tro­duc­tion of the new quar­ters for­mat, with matches played in four pe­ri­ods of 15 min­utes, in place of 35-minute halves.

Head coach Nathan Egling­ton said that se­lec­tion had been dif­fi­cult.

“The se­lec­tion panel has left no stone un­turned in try­ing to pick a group which will give us the best chance of suc­cess.”
