Its a chance to have a bit of fun, play some social hockey against people you wouldn’t normally meet on the pitch, and relax a bit before Christmas. Tickets are only £5, but fF you don’t have a ticket yet, just turn up and pay on the day!
If you are looking for something to do on Boxing day, why not join us at the Club. If you want to play, speak to a team captain, otherwise if you are still weighed down by turkey, why not come and watch and celebrate in the clubhouse afterwards!

November in Review: The Halfway Point
At halfway through the season, the leagues are starting to settle down, with some strong results for Slazenger so far. In the Mens section, the 1st team have moved into a promotion slot in second place. However, some tough encounters and a game ahead of the competition will keep things close at the top. The seconds move into a strong 5th position in a competitive Division 5 (South). With only 7 points seperating the top 6 teams, it is going to be a close affair in the new year. The Mens 3rds are also in 5th position. With a game in hand over teams above, and an encounter with 3 of the teams above in January, it may be the make or break month for the team. The Mens development team are also putting in a strong performance, sitting 3rd at the moment, with some big wins under the belt.
In the Ladies section, Ladies 1sts sit in 7th position, in their first season in the North Hockey League’s Division 2 (East). Some strong wins against established players in this league have been matched by some heavy reversals. The 2nds have had mixed fortunes after an initial undefeated run, which has knocked them off of top spot. However, some big wins keep them in 4th place, within striking distance of promotion. The 3rds have also had success, including a 6-0 victory over Doncaster, but some decisive losses keep them in 3rd place, and 7 points short of a promotion slot.
The Juniors have seen some big wins in all age groups. The Boys U10’s continue to impress, despite being a very young team. After securing promotion to Pitch B in the first tournament, they now sit mid table. An impressive result from the Boys U12’s has also ensured promotion, with 3 wins, 1 loss and 1 draw from their first tournament. Similarly, the Boys U14’s have also recorded some fantastic performances, winning 5 of their first 6 matches. The team go into the new year in 4th place (out of 16). The Boys U16’s unfortunately have struggled in their opening matches, however with strong team performances and the divisional structure in place from January, the team should be more competitive.
On the girls side of things, the joint Slazenger Selby U12 outfit sits comfortably mid table after some mixed results. The Girls U14’s have suffered a series of losses, and a missed tournament means that they sit close to the bottom of their league. However, team performances have been strong even though they have not played much as a team. Stand out performances go to the girls U16’s who, after a slow start to the season finished this year with a perfect tournament. 5 wins from 5 and 5 clean sheets.
