Portsmouth Festival / U10s Teams / U8s on the way..

Hi everyone,

Excellent training session on Sunday and for those that stayed on it was great to see the 1st XI in action (with a win!).

Portsmouth is our next Festival, scheduled details to follow.  U8s start at 0930, best guess is that U10s would start at around 1130.

This is what i have so far from Portsmouth :

Location of the Festival will be University of Portsmouth, Furze Lane, Portsmouth, PO4 8LW

We will obviously provide full details on the schedule as soon as we can, following confirmation on the team entries. However the structure of the festival will be :

  • Consecutively Run Festivals, with the Under 8’s starting first and then followed by the Under 10s, with a short break in between. 
  • Under 8 Festival Planned Start of 9.30am
  • Under 8 matches will be played on QTR sized pitches
  • Under 10 matches will be played on 3rd sized pitches
  • All and any club Mascots are welcome to attend, where we would be happy to lay on some entertainment and light-hearted competition among them during the break between the two festivals. Along with the team entries, if you can also indicate if this is the case. 

 Other key points of note include :

  • The University Campus is a Non Smoking Zone, so please no smoking whilst on site.
  • No Pets are allowed within the Sports pitch areas 
  • Parking is available on the Campus site and is Pay and Display. Roadside Parking is also available leading up to the site.
  • Changing Rooms and Toilets will be open, however they are not pitch-side and are located by the Car Park. They contain both Male and Female Changing rooms. Please ensure your child/players are supervised when using these facilities. 


I’m still working on the U8s team sheet with James, hopefully will get it out shortly.  The U10 teams are as follows.  If your child cannot make it please let me know equally if your child is available and hasn’t been selected do drop me a note and we’ll do our best to fit everyone in.

1st XI tomorrow and Haslemere Girls match report (sorry Nick!)

Hello!  The mens 1st XI are playing Canterbury tomorrow straight after our training at 1230.  For anyone interested do feel free to stay on and support the team.  It’s a great chance to see some top hockey and for the kids to see hockey played at the highest level in the club.

Anita will be there as usual with coffee and snacks, why not stay on and cheer on the team!

Also i’ve been incredibly slack and forgotten to post Nick’s match report for the Haslemere tournament, i’ve posted it below.  Apologies Nick!

see you tomorrow, Neil

Nick’s Haslemere U10A Match Report

An all girls team took to the field at Haslemere on Sunday and from the first whistle it was clear that they were a force to be reckoned with. Whether it was the all boys opposition from Fareham that ignited their spirit is uncertain, but they were certainly “on fire”. The excellent passing and link up play created space in midfield from which multiple forays in to the opposition circle produced a trio of fantastic goals, two from Rebecca and one from Kiera. The individually skilful opposition players struggled to make an impact against a formidable midfield in Millie, Anna and Lauren and a defensive line of Alice and Imogen that snuffed out their advances and kept a clean sheet.
A quick turnaround and the euphoria of victory may have left us distracted for the start of the second game and a well drilled Haslemere team capitalised early. Soon we were back in to our stride with Imogen and Alice defending like lionesses and putting in solid tackles.
Against a tough Gosport team (albeit bolstered with a few Haslemere players to make up the numbers) our metal was really tested. In the midfield, Anna and Lauren battled for any loose ball and used their skill to create the time to look up and pick out some great passes to Maisie (holding her own magnificently playing up from the under 8s) and Ellie on the wings. Rebecca and Millie linked up to release Pippa, who held her nerve under pressure and rattled the backboard. Gosport came back hard but the team was resilient and put their bodies on the line to maintain the slender lead. Kiera, Millie and Imogen all picked up nasty knocks in the space of a few minutes. We were running out of ice packs and substitutes but held on to the end for a great win.
A well earned break in our schedule allowed time for the parental medical team to patch up the wounded while the liberal application of sweets restored energy levels. Everyone was declared fit for the final game which just goes to show the great spirit and commitment of these young players.
For the last game against Portsmouth the opposition manager declared “We only have six players but you play with seven”! His confidence was well justified as we faced another skilful team. The game was played at a fast pace and Portsmouth had clearly been drilled in making the ball do the work to offset their numerical deficiency. We held our shape and created early chances. At the other end, a two-on-one breakaway looked certain to put Portsmouth on the score sheet. Imogen held her ground and execute a perfectly timed goal saving tackle. Moments later we were defending again down the wing when Allice took a blow to the upper thigh from a high cross. There was no way she was going to miss the end of the game and she was back on the pitch in under a minute.
After such an exciting morning, no one individual could be singled out for “player of the tournament”. This was simply a great team performance. Thanks go to Neil and Tom and to all the parents, brothers and sisters for their enthusiastic support.
