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.
Unbeaten Weekend for the Men
In a season of success, this weekend is certainly up there including a full set of wins for all the Men's teams on Saturday. After last weeks blip, the Men's 1s resumed to normal service by beating Stevenage 5-1. Pete Allam scored all five goals!
The Ladies 1s had a ding dong battle against promotion challengers Cheshunt. We won 2-0 with goals from Anneke Laux Gainer and Stef Abson. It's also worth adding that Kelly Loan saved a penalty flick when the game was 0-0. t's on these key moments that entire seasons are decided.
A fantastic result against a strong Cheshunt team!
Fantastic 2-0 win for the Men's 2s against Broxbourne. Goals for Tom Moorhouse and Kyle Purkiss. Great team performance, resulting in our 5th win in a row, and depending on one other result could put us 3rd in the table.
Men's 3s scored a significant win in their bid to avoid relegation. They were playing Letchworth who are also at the bottom of the league. It's going to be interesting to see if Ed Goodwyns team can mount the great escape.
The Men's 4s mounted a fantastic come back after conceeding 3 in the first half against Bedford Vets. They went on to win the game 4-3 win. Particular congratulations to Freddie Ormerod for his Man of the Match performance.
Men's 5's had a fantastic victory against St Albans 6-2. Fantastic debut performances by Alex, Tim, Oscar and Jackson. End score was 6-2 with new boy Alex scoring a hat trick (I hope he bought the beers back at the club house).
The Ladies 4s won 1-0 away against Sheffield & Sandy. A great deflected goal from Hannah Knight - it proves just how worthwhile the deflection training session on Monday was.
The Ladies 3's drew 2-2 with West Herts 5's. We were 2-0 up after brilliant goals from Sophie Lawrance and Charlotte Holland, but a strong West Herts side came back fighting second half. Brilliant work from everyone. Player of the match went to Charlotte.
Just the one defeat across the club. The Ladies 2s lost a very close game against Hertford 1-0. It was a great performance but we just couldn't get the all important goal.
On Sunday the Men's 1s played a rescheduled game against Bedford. The game was drawn 2-2. The match report will be posted on the website later this week.
THE INTERCLUB LEAGUE TABLE
A quick review of the combined club league table shows it is tight for 1st place but also very competitive for 3rd place as well - there are 5 teams battling it out for a podium finish...
NEW UMPIRES NEEDED
You'll then be supported and developed, and when ready assessed to become a full Level 1 qualified umpire.
Look forward to getting some more umpires enlisted from the different teams throughout the Club.
If you haven't already please give your availability to your captain or club captain...
Pete 'if i score more than 3 that means i don't have to by a Jug' Allam scored 5 this Saturday to claim 31 points. This season has been an extraordinary goal scoring splurge. Fantastic effort.
The battle for 2/3 spots remain tight between Andy Prentice and Duncan Hodges. Worthy of note was the 27 points for Alex Gilmore on his debut for the club.
