HOCKEY: Beccles commenced their 2010/11 season with a visit to Lowestoft Railway's home ground at Kirkley.

Beccles welcomed back Amy Thornton, who despite her absence last season had an excellent game in defence.

Although this game was a friendly, both teams had gained promotion last season from Division One to the Premier and will play each other in the league.

Railway went ahead within three minutes of the start of the game with a well-taken goal. The game was fairly even with plenty of end-to-end play.

Beccles equalised through Annette Freeman 20 minutes into the first half. The next goal was also scored by Annette, and started in defence and involved several players.

As the ball was passed accurately between the players, Gammo, Ali Foreman, Laura Ashworth, Heather Brand and finally Annette, it was an excellent display of teamwork with the players demonstrating some lovely passing moves.

Railway came back immediately and with three minutes left of half-time they equalised and the final result remained at 2-2.

This week Beccles are away to Harleston Magpies III, 10.15am start.
