2018/19 Season Well Underway
Following a terrific 2017/18 season all around, GHC are building on promotion of the Ladies 1s, a strong finish from the Men's 1s and National and Regional titles for the Juniors. We are attracting more players and coaches and looking forward to another terrific season:
- Gary Boucher remains as our Men's 1st XI coach after a competitive and strong 2017/18 season finishing just out of title and promotion contention. The Men are having some training over the summer already and Gary is attracting new talent to GHC, too.
- Following the superb result of promotion to South Div 2, Shay O'Connell will coach our Ladies 1s again in 2018/19. The Ladies are looking forward to another strong and enjoyable season.
- Dan Fox continues as Director of Junior Coaching, working with our professional coaches and also our large group of volunteer coaches (mostly parents and older juniors) to train and educate using the best and latest techniques and tips from the England Hockey Player Pathway and Golden Thread.
These three outstanding coaches also work together to share information and learning for the benefit of the club.
Our 2s and lower teams also benefit from coaching sessions mid-week provided. And we will continue to run 'Back to Hockey' sessions for those new to the sport or looking to get back into it after time away.
There are many more plans in process to make 2018/19 another happy, successful season at Guildford. We welcome new players, coaches, umpires, spectators, supporters, etc. Please don't hesitate to .
