January 8, 2020

What a term it has been for UWLHC charity! This year we have chosen to support two amazing charities.

The first is our national charity Teenage Cancer Trust (https://www.teenagecancertrust.org/) and the money we raise this year will be going to providing young people with essential support throughout their cancer journey, before, during and after.

Our second chosen charity is Coventry Cyrenians (http://www.coventrycyrenians.co.uk/) and the money we raise will go towards giving those in Coventry and Warwickshire who are homeless, or at risk of homelessness, individualised support to promote...

Term 1 has seen the 4s get off to a positive start. Trials and tasters at the start of term saw a huge amount of interest in joining the club. We continued to gain interest throughout the term, welcoming many later members. 

This season has been one of the most successful and promising starts for the 4th team. Our training sessions have become increasingly varied, as we have started to focus increasingly on match play and tactics. We have managed to form a strong team for matches, with a dedicated forward, mid and defence. The girls that do play, tend to play most matches, which has allowed...

The 3s didn’t have the most confident start to the season, with only 5 of the original players from last year left it was going to be an uphill battle. As the term began the freshers appeared, 15 in total, each of them bringing a different set of skills to the pitch and we were very thankful to have gained not one but 2 goalkeepers! By the end of week 3 we had scored 7 goals in both Saturday league and BUCS bringing our grand total to 14 in just 3 weeks, (the highest in the club)!! This included a 5-1 win over Staffordshire University and  2-0 win over Barfford Tigers. We also had our firs...

It’s been a fantastic first term for the twos!! Every year the 2s have a big fresh intake and this year has been no different, with 12 new members from fresh and the 3s we’ve made ourselves incredibly proud with our performances in the last 10 weeks. After a very strong trials at the start of term we have continued to improve throughout the term to finish at christmas placed highest out of all the teams in our BUCS league!

After getting promoted in saturday league last season we’ve had some very challenging matches but despite this the girls have put in an excellent effort every week withou...

Looking back on Term 1 everyone who has played with the 1s deserves so much

credit, the ten weeks have whizzed by and were jam-packed with so much as well as all our hockey. We began the season with an amazing preseason which all thanks to our Performance Sport team, as well as an incredible tour to Amsterdam. On tour we were lucky enough to have a training session at one of the clubs, play (and win!) against a local team and even watch some really high level hockey at Amsterdam HC.

Our Saturday league started off with some really promising wins, continuing our successful streak for a few we...

We kicked the new year off, with the Charity Talent Show returning in 2019 at Altoria with all the freshers from UWLHC and UWMHC getting involved to show us their many talents. While the competition was tense, in the end the Men’s 4s came out on top with a hilarious dance routine! This night raised a phenomenal £126 for Alzheimer’s Research, one of our chosen charities of the year and showed that our freshers are certainly not only talented on the hockey pitch! 

UWLHC also continued the February Family Challengewhich started for the first-time last year! We had 9 hockey families who di...

Term 2 has been the greatest 2nd half of a season that the 4th team has ever had in UWLHC history. After some great efforts in matches and some close scores, the girls worked so hard in training to develop their skills and match play and finally secured their first ever and well-deserved win!

The fours had their first match on the 20th of January, meaning that we had a lot of time to refresh and improve our match play in our two weekly training sessions in the lead up to the match. Whilst I was sadly unable to attend, my Vice Eloise captained the game. The game was against Nuneaton Ladies 4...

The 3s have had a really exciting season, improving both in our Saturday League and our BUCS. These last 10 weeks, in addition to our first season, have led to the success of our team both on and off the pitch. 

Our greatest game this year was undoubtedly the 2-2 draw against Nottingham Trent. Though this doesn’t look like a big achievement, especially since we had much better results against other teams, Notts Trent were dominating our BUCS league and so a draw against them (on their own pitch!!) was a fantastic result. Overall, we came third in BUCS, a great result given the standard of p...

Having ended last term in 8th place in Saturday league and 6th place in BUCs, the 2s have improved on both of these, finishing in 6th and 5th place respectively.  

In Saturday league, this half of the season has been really successful, with 6 wins, 3 draws and 3 losses. We also scored 22 goals! Our last game of the season was somehow also our biggest win with a margin of 5.0. Since we were only promoted into this league at the end of last season, we should definitely consider 6th place here a huge success. Reflecting again on the quality of our team, our goals this season have been spl...
