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.
IT'S BINGO TIME...
Ladies 3s get "Garden Gate"
Men's 2s score "Man Alive"
Men's 1s and Ladies 2s win with "Kelly's Eye"
Super 8-0 win for Ladies 3’s (Pictured below) with a real team performance. Goals came from Emily Hogan x4 on her 3s debut, Chops x 2, Charlotte Holland and Emma Walker. Particular congratulations to Emily who scored 2 last week for the 4s, 4 this week for the 3s. Next week she needs to score 6 for the 2s to keep her run going! Match Report
A really good 5-1 win for the Men’s 2s against a struggling West Herts! That's now 2 wins in a row for the Men's 2s and sees them go 7 points clear of the relegation zone. A real achievement whilst playing in a league mainly made up of 1st teams. Match Report
The Men's 1s notched a well needed 1-0 win against Blueharts. A clean sheet in such a tight game is a brilliant achievement. This weekend coming will be key for their survival in Division 2 - they are playing against teams on Saturday and Sunday. Good luck guys. Match Report
A Great 2-1 win for the Men’s 4s (pictured below) against Letchworth 4’s. Goals scored by Alex Gilmore and Joel Withey. They now sit just 3 points off a promotion place and 7 points from a relegation place in their very tight league. Match Report
Ladies 2’s (pictured below) won 1-0 against Broxbourne. It was very wet and extremely cold for players, umpires and supporters alike, including 3 x 6 month old babies. A big thank you to those who helped out today especially to Chops kindly stepping into the GK role and achieving yet another clean sheet with some superb saves! Match Report
Men's 5s seem to be suffering from injuries to aging limbs with poor availability. They still put in a brave performance in damp conditions against Hertford at RAF Halton. Berko lost 3-1. Match Report
Men's 3s had a chilly game against Stevenage 2nd team. Berko lost 5-3 with goals coming from Dawood, Toby Payton and Paul Whitby Match Report
The Ladies 1s sadly came 2nd against fellow relegation challengers Luton. It was a key game which we lost 2-1. The Ladies 1s are running out of games to turn their season round. Match Report
Finally, the Ladies 4s had a tough game against top of the table Luton which we lost 7-1. Match Report
