St Albans Hockey Club changed from their usual tangerine strip to pink in honour of club member Jacqui Barford who sadly passed away last week.
Jacqui had been a member of SAHC for over 20 years and played for the club’s Boadicea team.
To acknowledge her contribution to the club and to celebrate her life there was a minute applause at the start of Saturday’s games and the Boadiceas played in pink.
Mike Fordham, the club’s president, said: “A grey day for family and friends was turned pink as the Boadiceas and all other games went ahead in Jacqui’s memory, playing the sport she loved.”
Several teams had a break from the league games this week but the Ladies 2nds travelled to Maidstone and won 4-1, putting them third in the East of England Premier League, level on points with second-placed Wapping and seven behind leaders Bedford.
