Welcome

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.

 



Pizza Love
BERKO 1
PIZZA 0


The 2nd weekend of the league season and the Men's 1s notched their first win in their newly promoted league. It was a tight 1-0 victory against East London HC at the Olympic Site at Lee Valley Park.
Having played and won at the National Stadium, imagine the wonderful photos they could have provided. However the only one sent through was the lads eating Pizza. They don't appear to be getting their priorities right!? Match Report

The Ladies 2s (pictured) are showing some great form so far this season. Two wins in their first two games. This week they had a great 3-0 win against Saffron Walden. Match Report.



Ladies 3's got their first win of the season, beating Hertford 2-0. Goals from Sophie Lawrance and Helen Savage! Great team performance with slick passing and communication! Emily Alderson was Player of the Match for creating lots of chances and bossing the right wing! Match Report



The Ladies 4s drew their game against Welwyn in the late 4.30pm match at RAF Halton. It was a real ding dong battle and the game ended at 1-1.
The Berko goal was scored by Lara Gray (Pictured). Her first goal in adult hockey!
Player of the match was Evie Thorn.

The Men's 2s had a tough game against Hertford 1s. The opposition narrowly missed out on promotion last season against our Men's 1s and therefore they will be favourites for promotion this year. There is no shame in losing such a game 3-0 but Berko were still disappointed with their performance. Better luck next week. Match Report.



The Men's 4s (pictured) drew 2-2 against Letchworth 3s. A great come back from Berko having been 2-0 down. The 2 goals came from Kyle Purkiss. Man of the match was young Will Hodges
Match Report.



The Ladies 1s are playing good hockey but are yet to get up to speed in their new league. They had the best of the game against Tring but just couldn't take their chances. Another tough game next week. Let's hope the girls start finding their goalscoring form. Match Report.


After last weeks win, the Men's 3s were hoping for more of the same against St Albans. Sadly it was not to be. Berko went down 3-0 in an under par performance.
Their team photo however was anything but below par.

The Men's 5s were up against Southgate Adelaide 2s - a striking fixture that tells a story of a struggling opposition. It wasn't long ago that our 2s were playing this team.
Let's hope they recover and what better way to start than beating our bottom team 3-0. Match Report

Do you want to earn a First Aid qualification?
Do you already have one?
Let us know!!


Our sport is both tough and aggressive - awesome, but at the same time injuries are likely to occur. We all know someone who's had a hockey related injury, minor or major!
The committee are organising a first aid course for its members which will be held at the club before Christmas. This will be run on a Sunday over 6 hours. The Club are going to subsidise 80% of the course so you will only have to pay £10 to attend!
The course will cover basic first aid, emergency first aid and also sport/hockey specific injuries. The date of the course will be decided once we know numbers, so if you'd like more information or to put your name down please email Rebecca Wells.

If you already hold a First Aid certificate, brilliant!
Please let Rebecca know the details (date acquired, who from, date expires).
