A MESSAGE FROM THE CAPTAIN

Hello! I’m Eloise the 4th Team Captain for the 2019/2020 season!  The 4th Team is part of a friendly Sunday League in which we play other local teams, at a similar level of hockey to us. Unlike the other teams we do not currently play in a competitive BUCs league. Therefore the aim of our training sessions is to relax and have fun, as well as being inclusive for all. We hold two training sessions a week as well as a fitness session.

 

 We encourage everyone to come along and give hockey a go regardless of past experience level.  A large portion of the girls on our team have never played hockey before University, however were able to fall in love with the sport in this relaxed environment. 

 

That said however, as a team we have made huge improvements in recent years. The previous 2018/19 season saw us achieving our first of many wins, and a higher rate of goals scored than ever before. Therefore if girls are looking to progress into higher and more competitive teams, then the 4XI is a great place to start to gain confidence and experience. Several of the previous and current members of the 3rd, 2nd and 1st XI  started off in the 4XI, and myself and Phoebe, the 3rd team captain, are more than happy to work with you should this be your goal. 

We hold many socials throughout the year both with the team and the wider club, these include pizza nights, breakfast dates, meals after training, club nights and more! 

Being a part of the 4XI has made my university experience and has allowed me to meet some of my closest friends at university.  I hope you can come join us and give hockey a go and we look forward to meeting you! 

-Eloise Byrne
