300 small and big enthusiastic “herrH” fans flocked last Friday to the children’s hands-on concert with musician Simon Horn in the Linderthalle.
The club Hockey United Werne had invited to the sports and music festival for all families – and was overwhelmed by the response.
After singing and dancing, around 50 girls and boys showed themselves skilfully on the squatting stool. National player Maike Schaunig led the introductory training.
“What is normal?” is the name of a song by the children’s musician from Lippstadt, with whom he campaigns for tolerance and integration.
Hockey United wanted this song, because the organizer wanted to bring together “herrH” families of different origins and religions and reached this goal. Simon Horn also played many danceable pieces from his current album. Also, the “Emma, the duck” Stagediving was not missing.
For 60 minutes, the likeable singer gave everything to inspire his audience. In the end, Timo and Niko, the youngest United members, gave the star guest on stage another club sweater. The participants could also be supplied with the hockey hero bracelet of the DHB.
“Many thanks to the great team, it was a nice afternoon,” said Nicole Weber-Spies from Hattingen. “Thanks to everyone involved for the beautiful and genuinely class-organized afternoon, it was a lot of fun,” said Simone Naue, who had come with her offspring from Recklinghausen.
And indeed, the young, small sports club with great commitment of all members of the small and large visitors had a smile in the face. “herrH” was impressed by the boisterous atmosphere in the Linderthalle. It was a great atmosphere, “he said, still signing autographs. On December 14, he returns to the Christmas market in Werne.
Totally overwhelming was the subsequent trial hockey training with national player Maike Schaunig and United coaches Franziska and Julia Fleige.
“We thought the kids are tired of dancing and then we’re literally overrun,” laughed Schaunig. Dribbling, passing and scoring the first shots were on the training program with the hockey selection player wearing the jersey of German champion Uhlenhorst Mülheim.
Finally, Simon Horn also took to the hockey stick and tried to overcome goalkeeper Julia Fleige from the seven-meter point. Vain.

At the end of a long day Hockey United played another friendly match against the THC Münster.

The festival was financed by grants from the federal program “Integration through Sport”, sponsors Volksbank, B & G Beverage Logistics and Innogy as well as private donations.
