Jennie Hoyte & England over-50s win Four Nations

By Lucas Ball

Congratulations to Holcombe’s Jennie Hoyte who won the Women’s Over-50s Four Nations in Nottingham with England over the weekend, making it back-to-back titles.

Hoyte, who top-scored for Holcs last season, started England’s first two matches before being involved from the bench on Sunday.

She scored against Wales in a 3-1 win before England followed that up on Saturday with a 2-0 win over Ireland.

On Sunday, in their final match, England secured the title with a 6-2 win over Scotland, with Hoyte scoring twice.

Those goals put her third in the scoring charts, behind Scotland’s Gillian Green (9) and teammate Anna Morgan (5).

Scotland finished in second place with Ireland third and Wales fourth.
