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.



Stunning weekend of results

Another impressive weekend across the club with 7 wins, 1 draw and just 2 defeats. The club as a whole only conceded 7 goals on Saturday (the Men's 3s conceding 4 of them in their defeat!) and the Ladies section only conceding 1 goal across the 4 teams. Clearly any defensive training and team formations seem to be working well.

The most exciting game came on Sunday when the Men's 1s played their 1st Round match in the HA Vase. The National Knock-out Tournament. We came up against British Airways, the game was tied at 3-3 so it went to penalty flicks which Berko won 3-2 with Jay Cremin being the star between the sticks.
Match Report.


So Berko can now officially call ourselves...

The World's Favourite Hockey Club!
*Hope you like that line - took me all of seconds to think that one up - :-)*

On Saturday in the league the Men's 1s continued their unbeaten streak with a 5-2 win against Southgate Adelaide 1s, goals from Pete Allam x3, Ollie Webb and Tom Moorhouse

Ladies 1s also continue their unbeaten start to the season with a 2-0 win against Broxbourne with goals from Anneke Laux Gainer and Natasha Goodwyn. They now sit 3 points clear at the top of their league.

The Ladies 3s won 3-0 against Stevenage with Kate Hedge scoring a hatrick. Pictured right Captain Chops (Andrea) getting down on one knee (gingerly) and proposing to Kate. Either that or she is presenting the match ball to her after her fantastic goal-scoring feat. I hope Chops is aware that it is Stevenage's match ball and it needs returning!

The Ladies 2's lost 3-1 against Stevenage with Jennifer Silver scoring Berko's only goal. This may well be young Jennifers first goal for the club so well done to her.

The Ladies 4s drew 0-0 against Luton in a tight game, with great performances from all the yougsters.

Well done Men's 5's (pictured left) for their 1-0 win against Southgate Adelaide with Brian de Mattos scoring the only goal of the game.

The Men's 4 beat an experienced Letchworth side 3-0 in a thoroughly enjoyable match which was closer than the scoreline says.



With unavailability, the Men's section were rather short of forwards this weekend and the Men's 2s suffered the most. They had many chances but only managed to score 1 goal but that was enough as they beat Luton 1-0. Well played defenders!

Men's 3s made the long drive to Royston and promptly lost 4-1 defeat against a strong team. Our goal came from the experienced stick of Julian Laxon and Dawood Iqbal was man of the match.






On Sunday our Under 14s had a tough baptism against experienced squads at the Hertford tournament. What a great bunch of stars. It won't be long before names such as Joel Withey, Rhys Hanling, Michael Joyce, James Geary, Rhys Hanling, Kia Ruscoe, Charlie Higgins and Sam Friend will be regulars in the Men's 1s!
One small tip - when you have your photo taken, usually the goallie lies down at the front! Thank you to Jason Silver for coaching the youngsters yesterday.










(drum roll)....

Sunday 16th October
Men's 1s v British Airways - 3-3 (WON 3-2 Pens)


Hatrick’s tend to help in the fantasy hockey leagues. Pete Allam’s third in three weeks is a pretty remarkable achievement. Long may it continue.

Oli Bowman’s brace on Saturday moves him up the table to second.
The biggest mover is Joe Devey, who breaks into the top 20 with an outstanding effort in goal for the 5s.
There are also a number of fathers and sons in the club; Alderson, Goodwyn, Holderness, Johnson, Moorhouse, Prowse, and Webb. As a match up in the fantasy league the youth are seriously outperforming “the beautiful and experienced”. That is with the exception of Johnson and Webb who are showing the youth how to really play the game.
It's also worth pointing out Bric Luk and Daniel Fletcher - two newcomers to the club who are in the top 20 (Just in Dan's case!)

Emma “Drogba” Potts’ lead at the top of the ladies table has been cut to 2 after a superb display from her fellow defender in the Ladies 1s, Kate Jenkinson (who incidentally was 3rd a couple of weeks ago, dropped to 8th and is back). The highest points score this weekend was actually Kate Hedge with 24 points. However she had not played the last two games so is somewhat further down the table.
Also worth noting is the sippling rivalry between Lauren and Lana Ware - just 2 points in it!


Nine Teams came along making for a good atmosphere and a close-run battle right up to the final round. The winning score was 72 points and margin over 2nd place was only 6 points.
The winners were the Ladies 2s (named Pen Pineapple Apple Pen), who seemed to spend most of the quiz doing each others hair (Pictured Leanne with some king of Pineapple monstrosity). Whatever they did, it worked because they SCOOPED the £40 prize month. The £10 consolation went to the Ladies 1s. The rest of the money carries forward to build up the last-in-the-season Jackpot.
Remember you have to be IN IT TO WIN IT, so put the 2nd ROUND QUIZ NIGHT date in your diary now - its FRIDAY 2nd December.
