Hi, I am Oli France and I’m the 4XI captain for the 2020-2021 season. I study Biochemistry and I’m going into my fourth and final year at Sheffield.
My job as the 4XI captain consists of organising weekly training sessions and selecting a team for regular BUCS games. I also must coordinate with other members of the committee, such as the 3XI captain when there is movement between teams and the fixtures sec when organising match days.
I have been a member of the 4XI for the entirety of my uni hockey career and the last two years we have narrowly missed out on promotion. We have a very talented squad, that has not suffered too many player losses due to graduations. Therefore, I hope that in the coming season, with the help of any new members to the club and current team members, we can finally get the promotion that we deserve.
I am extremely excited for my final year with the SUMHC and I look forward to meeting any new members of the club.
Hi I'm Oakley Pendergest, known as Goggles in the hockey club and I am the 4s captain for the 20/21 season!
We've had a great season this year with big wins against Hallam, Leeds and Manchester in our league. Our team spirits have been high but really improved throughout the season as we gelled more as a team finishing in the top end of our league.
Next season our aim is for promotion by securing lots of league wins with the new squad as well as aiming to win again at Varsity against Hallam to follow last year's 3-0 win and make up for this year's cancellation!
I'm looking forward to the new freshers joining us and organising some fun socials to ensure they feel well integrated into the team.
Feel free to message me to find out more about the hockey club or W4s -
