Return to teams
Hi I'm Mike Buist, better known in the hockey club as Big Les, and I'm captaining the 1XI for the 2020-2021 season.
We finished 2nd last year, playing some great hockey, looking comfortable on the ball and dominating possession in most games.
However, we struggled in front of goal and before Christmas were adrift from the top of the table. As the season progressed we started to jell as a team better on and off the pitch and started to get results.
The highlight of the season came in our last game where we beat Newcastle away.
With strength and depth throughout the performance squad in the upcoming year, the team will be aiming for a top of the table position in BUCS and a good chance at varsity.
Preseason will start in early September with fitness sessions, training and also some team socials. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you’re keen, my email is email@example.com.
Hey everyone, I’m Sarah Brown, but most people know me as Power Shower-pronounced Par Shar (I’m Irish), and I’m this year’s women’s 1s Captain. Having been on my year abroad last year I feel deprived of both hockey and Wednesday night socials and so I am more enthusiastic than ever to return for my third year with the club of all clubs, the SUWHC.
The women’s 1s had a very tough season last year and unfortunately got relegated from Premier North into Northern Tier 1. So, this season we are aiming for nothing short of promotion. Furthermore, Varsity is no doubt the highlight of the hockey calendar and with it being cancelled last season due to Covid-19, we are more determined than ever to get another win under our belts. Having retained our performance sport funding for another year, we will have regular strength and conditioning sessions to improve fitness and aid injury prevention.
Off the pitch, we also have a lot of fun and want to continue to have a strong turn-out at our Wednesday night socials.
If you'd be interested in joining us for preseason training or have any questions, feel free to send me an email on firstname.lastname@example.org.
