The Men’s 1s training squad have had a good pre-season leading up to the first weekend of the 2019/20 season. Happily, we have welcomed back some old faces and have had a handful new members join over the past month, adding some strength to an already fired-up group of men.
Lewes, Havant and most recently Old Georgian’s 2s agreed to do battle in the lead up to the start of the league; a well-balanced fixture card for our pre-season program. We came away with a routine win against Lewes, followed by a testing 2-5 defeat to higher ranked Havant HC away.
Testing out the new pitch last weekend ahead of the opening ceremony this Saturday, we played against a strong Old Georgians 2nd XI. The OG club has done some excellent work in recent years to recruit and develop their hockey program to now be able to compete on the elite circuit in the England Hockey Leagues.
Both GHC men’s and ladies’ sides of the club have set their sights high for the coming season and are keen to press the ‘restart button’ from the beginning.
Good luck to all club members involved this weekend in the opening fixtures of the 2019/20 season. We look forward to seeing you pitch-side, supporting others as we celebrate our new Turf.
