LINWOODS PROVIDES A NUTRITIOUS BOOST TO ULSTER’S YOUTH HOCKEY

As the hockey season draws to a close, Linwoods Health Foods has sprinkled a little bit of goodness in grassroots sport through sponsorship of Ulster Hockey’s youth series.

It is the second consecutive season the Armagh based health food brand has sponsored the youth programmes, Super Sixes and Extreme Eights, which saw participation from more than 400 kids from 36 hockey clubs across Northern Ireland.

The boys under 11 cup final was won by Lisanagarvey HC after a thrilling win over Cookstown HC while the plate was won by South Antrim HC after defeating Instonians HC.

Pegasus HC were defeated by Portadown HC who lifted the cup in the girls under 11s final while Raphoe HC edged their way to lift the plate in a game with Dungannon HC.

Paula Colhoun, senior brand manager at Linwoods said, ‘We are delighted to be championing hockey in local communities throughout Northern Ireland from a grassroots level. We’ve been boosting teams with our superfoods that can be added to almost everything you eat from cereals, smoothies, salads and soups for a nutrient packed pick me up. Congratulations to all the teams who took part in the tournaments and to the overall winners who displayed exemplary levels of talent’.

Andrew Brown, youth development officer at Ulster Hockey said, ‘The ongoing support of Linwoods Health Foods as lead sponsor of our Club Youth Hockey Programmes is vital in ensuring we are able to compete at a high level and attract talent. Our Super 6s and Extreme 8s series have been a long-standing part of the Ulster Hockey youth programme for many years, and always attracts a huge number of participants and supporters. The ethos of these competitions is about fun and participation and this year we have seen an increase in the amount of players playing this format of the game. The partnership with Linwoods Health Foods is in its second year and is incredibly important and helps us to support and grassroots hockey throughout Ulster’.
