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.

 


Our clubhouse and grounds are available for hire. See the Clubhouse Hire section or click the button below to send us a message.

 


 

 2019 starts in fine fashion
Finally... a newsletter! Apologies for missing out a couple of weeks. December was hindered by some kind of web virus (surprisingly embedded in the last Men's 5s report).

We've seen a significant improvement on the pitch either side of the break. Whilst the Ladies continue to win their games, suddenly the Men have now found some form. The Men's 2s won their first game of the season this weekend and the Men's 3s are now unbeaten in the last 4 games.



Ladies 1’s (Pictured above) kept the energy high this week, fighting back from a disappointing draw last week. They won 3-0 against West Herts. Thank you to all of our lovely supporters and the Men’s 1s who encouraged us to the end. Goals by Harriette Holderness, Abi Lawlor and Pippa Mcclure. Ms of the Match was Harriette Holderness! And a clean sheet for Vicky Stanwell! Match Report



Fantastic result for the Men’s 2s (Pictured above) with their first win of the season against Blue Harts. 6-3 with goals from Will Goodwyn x 2, Toby Payton x 2, Joel Withey x 1 and Tim Westley x 1 and Will being voted Man of the Match. Match Report



Ladies 3’s (pictured above) made it 4 out of 4 for the ladies section today with a 2-1 win. Goal scorers Terri Payton and Kate Goodwyn. Player of the match was Sophie Hart. Match Report

Ladies 2s beat Letchworth 3-2. An end to end game with goals from Charlie Nash x2 and Emma Walker. Player of the Match was Hannah Prentice

The Ladies 4s (Pictured below) had a lovely 3-2 win against Chiltern. Goals came from Florence Fulcher, Jennifer Silver and Lizzie Pavlik. The player of the match voting was close but Jennifer just pipped it ahead of Rebecca Prentice. Match Report



The Men's 1s maintain their promotion challenge with a 5-0 win again Bedford. Three of the goals come from Short Corners. Match Report

The Men's 3s were unlucky to draw 2-2 with Cheshunt equalising in the last minute of the game. Match Report

The Men's 4s were very unlucky to come away with nothing in their 4-0 defeat against Potters Bar. The game was far more even than the score line suggests. The Men's 4s are starting to play like a real team and are sure to have a better 2nd half of the season. Match Report

The Men's 5s had a similar experience to the Men's 4s. Lots of the play but sadly nothing to show for it at the end of their game against West Herts. Sadly losing 7-0. Match Report

YOUTH SECTION HOCKEY



There are so many great things going on with our Junior Section at the moment. New Kit, hosting tournaments and we've entered into the regional junior leagues. The last couple of weeks has seen young teams entering and winning lots of games against other regional clubs. Pictured above the cheeky girls Under 12s who were unbeaten yesterday against Tring, St Albans, Chalfont and Amersham and West Herts. Meanwhile, the Boys Under 12s were unbeaten against Milton Keynes, Buckingham and Amersham and Chalfont.
Congratulations to AnnaMarie (pictured below) and all the other helpers. Love the picture. #LivingTheGame
