  Longest indoor hockey match-world record set by Havering Hockey Club
  HORNCHURCH, England -- 24 players from the Havering Hockey Club played hockey for 26 hours and 38 minutes- raising more than 3,000 for the Recorder's Lifeline Appeal and setting the world record for the Longest indoor hockey match.
    Photo:The club had been split into two teams, Havering Hockey Club versus The Harrow Pub, which had been sponsored by the pub on Hornchurch Road. Each team had six players and six substitutes.(enlarge photo)
   And the final score? An amazing Havering 275, Harrow 382.

Club President Pat Johnson said: "They've project managed something that was really quite huge. "There were quite a few players with cramps and strains, but they didn't give up - they just kept going and going."
"We were all quite drained but we kept each other going with morale," youngest player Alex Defroand, 17, said.

"People think you go into a world record attempt having had a full night's sleep and day's rest - but we didn't!" one of the organisers and player Paul Nerurkar said.

   As Paul said: "You don't realise how many people are involved in a 20-hour event - not just the players but the 43 officials, ranging from medics, to umpires, stewards and independent observers."

  THE Recorder's Lifeline Appeal is looking to raise 300,000 to buy an essential piece of medical equipment for Queen's Hospital in Romford.
   The money will buy Stereotactic cancer-treating equipment for the hospital in Rom Valley Way. The machine will help in the fight against cancer by pinpointing abnormal cells in the brain and beaming x-rays in to destroy them.
