We would like to dedicate this post to Paavo Ondreka, who at short notice, with the permission of his club was allowed to fill in as our goalkeeper for our epic battle against HT on Wednesday 12 June 2019, at the Helsinki Velodrome. Our regular goalkeeper unfortunately and unavoidably became indisposed due to an emergency. A massive thank you also to Sikke and HT for allowing us to lend a goalkeeper for this cracker of a match. Thank you also to the field hockey federation for its flexibility in this regard.
The spirit and professionalism in which Paavo assumed his goalkeeping duties are commendable and words cannot possible express our gratitude. His input and feedback, perspective and encouragement during the break periods were invaluable in terms of allowing us to continue our fight during the match.
You are welcome to join our ranks at any time! PS. ABC, this is not an attempt to poach Paavo, even though we would not mind having him all to ourselves 🙂
