We are a friendly hockey club based at the Cow Roast, just between Berkhamsted and Tring.We run 5 mens teams and 4 ladies teams, covering all ages and abilities.
For the stars of the future, we have a packed youth section, split into various age ranges, training at various times.
The men play in the Eastern Counties league and the ladies play in the 5 Counties league.
These leagues comprise clubs spread across Hertfordshire and nearby parts of the neighbouring counties.
Both 1st teams win in style
It's great to see both 1st teams doing so well. The Men's 1s beat Bishop Stortford 4-0 with goals from Pete Allam x2, Alistair Pettefer and also from Man of the Match Ed Holderness (pictured right).
The Ladies 1s won the local derby game against Tring. After a cautious first half Berko showed more aggression in the 2nd half and continued the great goalscoring form they have shown so far this season. Pictured below Player of the match Kelly Loan.
The Men's 4s won a tight encounter with Cheshunt and the Ladies 3s drew 1-1 against Blueharts.
The Men's 5s had a 5-0 walkover victory against Bedford (who could not field a side).
Elsewhere in the club there was less fortune with three narrow defeats for the Men's 2s, Ladies 2s and Ladies 4s by the smallest margin of a single goal. On a positive note, it demonstrates how competitive all these teams will be this season.
The only team who may struggle this season are the Men's 3s who will have a stiff time in Div 5 this season.

THE BERKO FANTASY
After two weeks Pete Allam and Ali Pettefer are joint top of the men's table, Ali having claimed 19 points on Saturday courtesy of a goal and a clean sheet.
It is good to see the Mens Club captain, the bloke who manages the analysis of the data over the weekend, still in the top ten. Odd that.
Faye Potton is top of the ladies leagues having scored and claimed two assists from midfield this weekend. Good to see the leading strikers and goalies in the top 10.
