The upcoming August Bank Holiday and the inevitable deluge of rain, signals the beginning of another hockey season. Most teams will have dipped their toes into some gentle training already but for some, the start of September means not just time to dust off the sticks and dry out the gloves and boots but …
This will take place on Saturday 5th September – 13:00 – 16:00 All welcome. We’re hoping to follow this year’s afternoon of hockey with a social event. Details to follow.
Sadly the men will only be fielding one team this year. It’s a sad move but we simply don’t have the players available regularly. Please can all all club members support Chris Aldridge to develop a strong first team squad, including the teenagers we do have, which will compete well in the Conference North league.
