Both the elite 1st XIs are now in their Christmas breaks. The Women’s team are working hard but with a very young & new team this season are still looking for their first win in South Central Premier 1. The Men are fairing better and currently sit at the top of the National League Conference West. Good luck to them both in the second half of the season.
After two terms of hockey in Local Havant Borough Schools, eight teams competed for the Community Programme Shields in late November. Thanks to a raft of helpers and volunteer umpires, all schools were supported during this competition.
Two leagues of four teams playing three matches each, were played out and our evening and the league tables were as follows:
|Year 5/6||Positions||Won||Drew||Lost||Goals For||Goals Against Points|
Monday Club 3
|St James Primary||2||0||1||7||1||7|
|Mill Rythe Juniors||0||0||3||0||9||3|
|Year 3/4||Positions||Won||Drew||Lost||Goals For||Goals Against Points|
|St Johns Primary||2||1||0||9||0||8|
|St James Primary||2||1||0||8||0||8|
It proved to go right to the wire in both leagues, making for exciting competition. Win, Lose or draw the Community Programme ensures that the teams learn more than just playing hockey skills.
Competition is hard for some children and they are helped to learn how to congratulate by giving three cheers for each other and nominate players of the matches. The The Club would like to thank RJM International for it’s continuing sponsorship of the important work carried out by the Community Programme, it is very much appreciated.
We are still open for new members of all abilities. For more details on the Club please visit the website www.havanthockeyclub.org.uk
