The ladies entered two teams in to the Southgate Summer Hockey League this year.

The A team had some mixed results early on with very close score lines until a brilliant 5-0 win over Hampstead and Westminster and continued on to qualify for the cup competition in the second half of the summer. They finished 5th in the cup with 2 wins and 3 losses which included a memorable 5-0 win against Harrow who had been unbeaten all summer.

After starting with a defeat, the B team’s highlight of the summer came early on when in the second match they beat Southgate Hot Shots 2-0. There was a series of losses until a magnificent 5-0 victory over Hendon and Mill Hill. The Bs played in the plate competition for the second half of the summer where they came 5th overall with 4 losses but rounded the summer off with a nice 2-0 win over Hendon and Mill Hill once again.

The final match of the summer was the rescheduled As v Bs which saw 20 players and the greatly missed Rob Deane take to the pitch. Presumably inspired by the Durham warm up going on next to the pitch, the game was a brilliant show of talent and enthusiasm and nodded strongly to a few more wins next season!

The season is over, but don’t panic! We’ve already entered two teams into the Broxbourne Summer League (one men’s and one ladies’) and are also looking to enter a team or two in the Southgate Summer League too. Who said hockey was just a winter sport?

The games take place on weekday evenings, usually around  a 7pm or 8.30pm start. So, if you’re interested in playing or would like some more information, let your captains know and they’ll pass your details on to our summer captains.
