GU1420150913PremvMarlow-200The Home Counties Girls League has this year added a Premier League to the regional and development leagues. While we were unsure ahead of the season if we had the level required to compete, we decided that we have the resources and desire and would make a go of it. The competition will no doubt be tough but we showed many promising signs in this first tough match v Marlow...

The second of two Guildford teams to play today, 'Ice' went to meet Bucks. Having passed through 5 counties (our other team playing at home), and at one point been seemingly on the way to Scotland, we arrived at the most beautiful Stowe School. Before we get to the score line, it is worth mentioning that the opposition won the regional finals last year, a fact which was kept from the girls and they were indeed a strong (and very tall!) team.

The first fixture of the season was bound to be a learning session, the boys having only had two training sessions together with many of them just getting to know each other. Sunbury away was the match and things were off to a good start with a clear drive round the M25 and a clear sky...

2015-09-0511-200The Under 16 Boys made a solid start to their season with a friendly tournament at Sevenoaks on Bank Holiday Monday, friendlies against Havant the following weekend, and now the start of their league season today.

The girls ventured out to a warm Saturday afternoon for a triangular tournament hosted by Surbiton to play their U18 first team and a team on tour from Munster, Ireland. The Munster girls were a regional squad, equivalent to our JRPC, so we were in for a tough afternoon...

The competition had started back in October with more than 80 teams from across England. See what happened here in the tour report and don't miss the gallery of photos at the end....

2015-04-1571 BU14Tier2-200The boys had qualified for the Regionals of the Under 14 Boys National 'Cup' Competition and were drawn against Bromley & Beckenham, Hertford and Canterbury. Only one team of the four would go through to the National Finals...

2015-03-2069-200The Under 14 Boys wrapped up their weekly training sessions and Sunday matches with a final Saturday training session, thank you's and awards, following by a bbq. A nice way to close off the league season...

2015-03-22 GU12SouthPlate-200The season for our U12 Girls took an unexpected but pleasing turn a few weeks ago when, following their strong performance in the Surrey Cup, Guildford earned a 'lucky loser' place in the In2Hockey South Regional Cup...
