Past hockey players of Trinity, St. Peter’s and S. Thomas’ Colleges have for the second time come together to organise a Sevens tournament on Saturday (September 10) at the St. Peter’s ground Bambalapitiya commencing at 8.30 am.
Named the Hockey Carnival, the event is conducted for the well being of the sport in the three academic institutions as well as to strengthen bonds between the three schools.
The inaugural tournament was hosted by S. Thomas’ College last September.
The event will also mark a reunion of past hockey players of the three schools, some of whom had gone on to sport the Sri Lanka jersey, besides creating an atmosphere to what organisers say is “to go down memory lane”.
To mark the occasion, a present player from each of the three schools will received a sponsorship during his school career.
