Holderness Vet Group supports local boys’ football team

Hedon Rangers Pythons U9s with Evie Beattie and Jon StoreyHolderness Veterinary Surgeons, Haven Veterinary Group, has helped a fledgling football team to join the Hull Boys Sunday Football League by providing them with their playing kit.

 

Managed by former Hedon Rangers senior player, Jon Storey, Hedon Rangers Pythons is a new team that was formed when the original Hedon Rangers Under 9’s team became oversubscribed.

 

Entering the league in Phase 2 that began in February, the team, based at Saltend, is happy to be playing regular football and is already showing signs of great improvement.

 

Commenting on the kit sponsorship, Jon Storey said: “They’re a great group of committed footballers and we’re very grateful to both Haven Veterinary Group and Riverside Property for their generous sponsorship.”

 

Watching the game against Hessle Rangers from the sideline, Evie Beattie from Haven Veterinary Group said: “We’re proud to able to support youngsters playing sport in the community. They’re obviously really loving their football and it’s a joy to watch.”

 

Haven Veterinary Group has been treating and caring for small and large animals for over a century and its Holderness Road practice is one of only a few nurse training centres in East Yorkshire.

Hull Veterinary Surgeon sees success

Antony BadaThe lead veterinary surgeon at the Holderness Road branch of Haven Veterinary Group is celebrating after gaining a prestigious qualification in ophthalmology.

Antony Bada was awarded the General Practitioner certificate in Ophthalmology after studying with the European School of Veterinary Postgraduate Studies (ESVPS) and can now offer a full range of diagnostic, surgical, and therapeutic treatment of eye disorders for large and small animals.

Of the achievement, Antony said: “It was a comprehensive and stimulating course that gave me a thorough understanding of the anatomy, development and physiology of the eye and covered the full spectrum of ocular diseases that I am likely to see in both the Hedon and Holderness Road practices.”

31 year old Antony graduated in Poland and joined Haven Vet Group in 2011.  He also enjoys soft tissue surgery and cardiology.

Practice owner and principal veterinary surgeon, Jim Morris said: “This is a tremendous achievement.  Antony worked very hard and the qualification is well deserved.  We’re proud to be one of only a few practices in the area that can offer this service.”
