For the first time in 2010 a 60+ Old Lions team has competed with success in an International competition organised by the World Grand Masters Association and accomplished an amazing feat by ending in third place after a series of strokes, encouraged by the late Jacques Maroye who came to support us and offer champagne.
Without discontinuing, year after year, we played the European and World Championships.
In December 2016, the Old Lions forged a team of 70+ to play a friendly game against a well-trained Dutch team in Tilburg. Even though the Old Lions lost the game 2-0, they were confident that there is a “future” for these veterans. It is now done, a 70+ team is born with players from 10 different clubs. They prepare themselves as well as the 60+ and 65+ to play the European Hockey Masters held in Glasgow at the end of august 2017. With three teams, the physiotherapist,
coaches and managers, the Belgian delegation will consist of about 60 persons.Glasgow at the end of august 2017.
