The European Masters hockey tournament is in full swing at St Albans Hockey Club.
Glorious sunshine at the weekend saw more than 500 spectators watching international men’s hockey at Oaklands College, in an event made possible by 70-plus volunteers from the club and locality.
On a clean sweep on opening day, the England over 40s chalked up a 5-0 win over Italy, the over 50s beat France 7-1 and the England over 55s defeated Germany 1-0.
