Guildford HC welcomed eighteen Ladies teams from clubs from all over the South region to play in pre-season festival on 31 August and 1 September.
Across the weekend there were over 300 players from Conference to South Div 3 teams. Charterhouse proved a great venue and the event was enjoyed by all teams taking part.
Guildford played eight games across the weekend, ensuring that a number of players got a good amount of match play. We are welcoming a good number of new players to both the 1st and 2nd XI squads together with some of our home grown juniors.
With so many playing for places in the two top teams. the players worked extremely hard making the job of selection really challenging!
GHC Director of Hockey, Dan Fox, and Men 1st XI player Ross Fergusson were on hand to umpire across the weekend - many thanks to them for helping out.
1st XI Coach Shay O’Connell and 2nd XI Coach Kirsty Rostron are looking forward to the new season - cannot wait for the start of the season. With both teams - indeed all five of our 2018/19 teams earning promotion for 2019/20, it is game on.
