Coming back after Christmas, with only 3 BUCS games left, we set our sights on gaining back our high position in the Saturday league table. Although Daura had unfortunately returned after her Erasmus term, meaning we were down a defender, we were pleased to welcome Charlotte Thomas back to the forward line after her term in Venice. When we started the rotation of teams in the league again, the return of her speed and skill was felt immediately as we began to win with greater results than the previous times we’d played those lower teams. Every week felt really exciting as we continued and c...

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...

After a challenging, but rewarding Term 1, with some tough matches and hard-fought wins, the 1st XI went into Term 2 with a lot to fight for.

In BUCs, we still had the chance to stay up in Midlands 1A because of our tie with Birmingham 3s and our win against Worcester 1s. Where we were plagued by injuries in Term 1, most of our team was now fit and back on our feet. We didn’t have many BUCs matches left, but every match was important. Although we didn’t win our BUCs matches in Term 2, we showed great improvement compared to Term 1, which could be seen in our results. Through our hard work,...

This year’s Varsity match pushed back at 11:30 on Sunday the 24th of Feb, the early start perhaps an attempt by Coventry to lessen the amount of supporters witnessing their 29th loss. The sun shined, teasing the possibility of an early summer, Warwick 1s warmed up to the boombox (despite the recent injury of our DJ Sec) and Varsity-bundle facepaint decorated supporters and players alike. Warwick’s supporters were out in force with just as much cardboard, outnumbering Coventry’s fans despite us playing on their shoddy home pitch.

The first half produced no real threat from Coventry. Warwick...

The 1s have had a very busy term 1, being promoted into a new BUCs league and facing a lot of great teams on Saturday as well. Currently, we are in the fourth place in the Midlands 1A league, and in 8th place in the WWHL. After a difficult start, we are now going up in the rankings and winning more and more games. With the second half of the season and Varsity still ahead, we look forward to keeping the goals coming and getting even more wins in term 2!

This year we permanently added two freshers in the team. Chelsea has been an excellent addition to our midfield, dribbling around our oppon...

This has been an absolutely incredible term (and year) for the 1st XI, and all credit must go to the girls for working so hard to achieve it all.

With only two BUCs wins needed in term two to clinch the title, we had it comfortably secured in week 5 of term, with a thrilling 5-3 victory vs Leicester. The celebrations were one to remember, and I’m not sure we’ll ever get tired of chanting ‘we are Warwick 1s’.  Also, big hand to the girls for still stepping up for the remaining league games post-title win, beating Oxford and Harper Adams to complete a flawless 9/9 wins in Midlands 2A. Perfect...
