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.

 


NOTICES
 - Santa Sleigh Fundraiser (21st December). Volunteers are now needed. Respond to Nick Cave
 - NEXT Social Event has been announced (6th January). Hawaiian Race Night, organised by the Men's 1s. Let's make it a cracking night. Respond to their social secretary Emily Tyer
 - MATCH REPORTS - there are some very impressive match reports being written. These are worth celebrating. This week the highlights are the Men's 4s (Jim Carlilie), Men's 5s (Andy Prentice) and Ladies 3s (Rebecca Wells). Three pieces of absolute beauty. The bar is being raised every week. When it's your turn - get creative!



LADIES IMPRESS ON AND OFF THE PITCH

Yet another great weekend for the ladies on the pitch with an unbeaten series of league games. And to top it off the show was stolen at our annual comedy gig by the brilliant female duey Flo and Joan. Interestingly, Joan (on the right) used to be a county hockey player herself (for Hampshire) and also represented the South of England. "I did offer her a game next week, with her CV she'd fit nicely into our 4s"...



Speaking of our Ladies 4s... A rather poorly team (Pictured above) team went out on Saturday morning with only 11 players and won 2-1 away against Letchworth. Never the easiest place to visit. Goals from Lizzie Pavlik and Kelly Ross. Man of the match was Debra Wetters. Well played ladies!! Match Report



The form side in the Men's Section are the 5s (Pictured above) who yet again won their game. This week they beat St Albans 4-3 with goals from Alfie, Alex, David and Andy. The team are gradually creeping up the league. Match Report



The Ladies 3’s (Pictured above) won a very exciting match 3-2 against Bedford. Goals from Rebecca Wells Charlotte Holland and Kate Hedge.
Player of the match was Rebecca for an outstanding performance at left back with a goal to top it off! Match Report

The Ladies 2’s drew 0-0 against St Neots, a very tough opposition. Berko held fast even with a short against us in the last few seconds. Well done ladies you were awesome, and a well deserved Player of the Match went to............. Sian Davies. Match Report



The Ladies 1s (pictured above) beat West Herts 2-1 in a Fantastic game - goals came from Anneke Gainer and an awesome goal from Natasha Goodwyn. Champagne moment from Ann Baxter with a fantastic cricket-style clearance in the D - for that and other great defending she got player of the match. Match Report



Sadly the Men's 4s lost narrowly to Shefford and Sandy 3s. However, our one goal came from young Joel Withey and his new stick. This trusty new weapon is even named after him... Joel Does Hockey. Joel then had a county game on Sunday and scored two more goals with the 'magic' stick. I suspect there are a few other players in the Men's section who need a JDH. Match Report



The Men's 3s (Pictured above) are suffering from a bit of Deja Vu this season with a tough run of games at the moment. Very much like last season. This week they played top of the table Shefford and Sandy 2s and sadly lost 7-2. Goals came from Ben Moorhouse and Ed Goodwyn. Match Report

The Men's 2s lost a narrow game 2-1 against Broxbourne. Injuries are taking the toll across the men's section. Match Report
ps. Still waiting for a suitable pitch related photo from the Men's 2s this season - so Roger's bum returns. A picture of a few players in the clubhouse eating their match tea is not acceptable!

The Men's 1s made the long trip to Cambridge South with a few absentees from the squad. They lost 4-2 with both goals coming from Pete Allam. They face a must win game this Saturday against Letchworth, like Berko they are a promoted team. Match Report

SANTA SLEIGH FUNDRAISER...
HELP NEEDED!

It's time to volunteer for the Santa Sleigh fundraiser
It's getting close.
Editor "I can vouch for how much fun this is and the feeling of good will that comes from it, particularly for all the kids involved - it's also a great fundraiser for many good causes including our club"

As a club we normally give him some help by supporting Berko Lions in making a collection as Santa does his rounds checking everyone has been good before he makes his deliveries. It's a good laugh and raises real cash for the club and other local charities.
This year our slot is...
Date : Thursday 21st Dec
Time : 6-8pm

We need around 8 people to help santa, let me know if you fancy being an elf?!
