Mens 2nd Team
Hi, I’m Sam Saxelby and I'm the 2XI captain for 2018-19 season. My job involves the day to day running of the Men’s Second team such as picking the team, coordinating with fixtures secretaries as well as the Tactical side during matches.
After slightly underperforming in the league last year I look forward to pushing hard to finish towards the top of the league this year. We have a very talented squad which is certainly capable of achieving a strong league position. Following the graduation of many of our older players in the team, the younger players in the team are provided with a brilliant opportunity to step up this year and I look forward to guiding them through this. With the help of the Performance Sport scheme I look forward to leading my team and helping them improve as hockey players. It’s a massive honour to be the Second Team Captain for this season and I look forward to the challenges and successes that will no doubt come this year.
Womens 2nd Team
Hi, i'm Freya. Our main aim this season is to finish in the top end of the league, aiming for promotion- after a disappointing last game against Leeds this season. Likewise, we will of course also aim to beat Hallam at varsity after our current drawing streak. With team bonding on and off the pitch both through strong weekly fitness and intense training sessions I’m sure this is achievable. Beyond the pitch, the 3s will continue to represent at ROAR and ensure the integration of freshers. Overall, I’m extremely excited for the upcoming season and all the incoming freshers!
