Welcome

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.

 



HAPPY NEW YEAR

The league season got restarted this weekend. Quite an early restart and not surprisingly we lost three fixtures to the cold weather. Men's 1s, 4s and the Ladies 2s games were sadly postponed.

The Ladies 3s provided the best result and some impressive commitment to photography (pictured right). They won 4-0 against Hertford with goals coming from Emily Alderson, Andrea Bettridge, Rebecca Wells and Charlotte Holland.
Player of the match was Sophie Hart.
The Ladies 3s are now up to 2nd in the league table and if they put in a great run for the rest of the season they have a real opportunity for promotion. Match Report

The Ladies 1s drew 1-1 against local rivals Tring. Berko were winning until the last few minutes but Tring scored a scrappy late one to draw the game. Both teams are neck-and-neck in the league so a win would have been nice. This coming weekend we face a tough match against top of the table Leighton Buzzard. Match Report

The Men's 3s (pictured below) are showing some impressive resolve at the moment. After beating West Herts 9-1 before Christmas, they faced the much stiffer challenge of St Albans. The final result was a 2-2 draw but Berko certainly had the best of the chances throughout the game and were unlucky not to get a winner. Match Report



Elsewhere the Ladies 4s lost a tough game against a strong Stevenage side who have been struggling all season at the bottom of the table. The final result was a 3-0 defeat. Match Report

The Men's 2s had a tough opener to 2018 with an away trip to Hertford 1s who are unbeaten and top of the table. The final result was 7-1 with Berko's goal coming from Tom Villa. Match Report

And the Men's 5s had a similar experience with a tough game against top of the table Welwyn 3s. The final result was a 9-2 defeat. Match Report
