And what an end to the season it was for the Over 65s! Not content with their 6th place at the World Cup in Australia and 2nd place at the Home Nations, they achieved the first ever international tournament victory by a Wales Masters age group, emphatically winning the Celtic Cup with clean sheet victories over France, Scotland and Ireland.

Wales 60s started the weekend off with a tough game against England. After a bright first quarter when Wales were unable to convert a couple of chances, sustained England pressure took its toll and Wales went down 7-0. Some outstanding goalkeeping from Dave Tipper, including a penalty stroke save.

The performance of the day came from the 65s who held England to 1-3, actually winning the second half 1-0 with a deflected second phase penalty corner shot from the evergreen Phil Withers. This was their best result for many years with the form of goalkeeper Roger Parr a significant bonus.

Day 5 was a bitter-sweet day for Wales. Plaudits go to the O70s who scored their first ever international goals and their first ever international victory, 2-1 against Japan, to give them confidence as they press for a bronze medal. The first goal was a great individual effort by Martin Day and the second came from an Alan Coles penalty corner strike deflected in by Simon Williams. Japan replied late in the game through a penalty stroke. Is their a hidden message in the potentially unique fact that Wales had an all female bench of Ffion Robinson (Manager) and Linda Samuel (Physio).......

Day 3 was good for 60s, who beat Singapore 6-1 and yet were still disappointed with their performance! 4 goals from Zahid Arian and one each for Malcolm Woodward and Sean Sutton saw Wales to top place in their group and Zahid to top of the tournament goalscorers list with 6. Pretty sure no Wales Grandmaster has ever scored 4 goals in an international before......
