Some great news on the pitch fund front. Our efforts over the summer to get people to vote for us on the Mars Milk Play Fund has paid off. Although we didn't manage to get first prize, we have recently been informed that we are the lucky winners of a £300 runners up award.

So huge thanks from the committee to the Mars Milk Play Fund, to everyone who voted for us and pestered their friends into voting for us, and to all those in the world hockey community and beyond who put a shout out on our behalf: Grove Menzieshill, Ross Bone, Vicki Bunce, Eilidh Child, Scottish Hockey, Bahrain Hockey, Jamie Dwyer, Mercian Hockey and lots of others too.
