WHAT WE'VE BEEN UP TO...

April 4, 2020

Term 2 has been a fantastic time for the 3s; the team has become ever closer over the many matches that we had this season due to the many re-arrangements from the shocking English weather! Our performance had vastly improved from term 1, thanks to our amazing coach Andy along with the help of Louis always pushing us to be better players.

The 3s have performed brilliantly in BUCS this season, winning all of our matches apart from our very last match of the season against Derby 1s. It was a very narrow loss, we were tied 0-0 at half time, however given that this was our only BUCS loss this t...

I'd like to say a massive thankyou to the 2s, you have made me so proud to be your captain this year, it’s an honour and I’m so proud to have continued the tradition of having such a close knit group of girls even with so many new faces. On and off the pitch you girls are fantastic and I already miss spending so much time with you all. 

We are very happy with a mid table finish, securing our places in both BUCs and Saturday league with some fantastic play. We have given some of the best hockey and best results in the club with massive 6-1 win against Shipston 1s, 5-0 and 4-1 wins in Saturda...

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...

Term 2 has been a great one for the 2nd team. Spoiler alert but we finished TOP OF THE LEAGUE in our Saturday WWHL division, with 47 points, and guaranteed ourselves promotion to Division 2.

We maintained our winning streak – only losing one match all year, which was aeons ago on the 30th September (before half of the fresh had even moved to uni). We had some emphatic scores, winning 7-0 against Birmingham Wasps and Solihull Blossomfield, 6-1 against Sutton Coldfield and 5-0 against Berkswell, who we had drawn 0-0 against when we first played them in November. As a team, we conceded the lea...

8-0: The biggest Varsity shoeing in UWLHC history?

On what must’ve been the coldest night in February, the whole of UWLHC came out in force to watch the 1XI shoe the poly in one of the biggest wins in our Varsity history.

Upon arrival to Westwood we followed the sound of the banging tunes to the home changing rooms where we were greeted by our very own MUA Charlotte LLoyd (follow her hair and beauty page on insta) who kitted us out with our war paint and we were ready to show everyone why we go to the real uni.

As we walked out onto the pitch ready to show the fans why we are not only Warwick...

Social hockey has had its biggest intake ever this year with over 30 girls turning up to our taster sessions at the beginning of term. Many of the girls had never played hockey before, but by the end of term they had grown in confidence and skill so much that they were able to fully partake in drills with the rest of the 4s, as well as the occasional training with the 3s, which is a fantastic achievement.

The 4th team compete in a friendly league and play 4 matches a term. Our first match against Stratford Ladies proved to be quite tough and we unfortunately lost 7-0. However, we were playi...

I have been extremely proud of what the 3s have achieved this term as a team, both on and off the pitch.

We were faced with a lot of changes from the very beginning: new coach, new pitch, and new division arrangement within the Warwickshire League. Yet this has not deterred us from being successful.

We started off by shoeing the poly and we didn’t think it could get any better.

How wrong we were.

Since then, we have risen to the top of the division in the Warwickshire league, with some spectacular results, including an 8-0 win against Sutton Coldfield and 5-0 against both Long Buckby and Ru...

The first half of the season has been an extremely promising one for the 2nd team, as we sit comfortably in promotion zone in our WWHL league and are mid-table for BUCS.

We have had an amazing fresher intake, with 8 fresh regularly playing for the 2s, leading to some very lengthy fresh factor performances. Our new waterbase astro has made training at 9pm on a Monday a much more exciting experience this season, and we have been lucky enough to participate in training matches against both the 1s and the 3s on the new surface.

Training also allowed to us to sort out our nightmare short corner...

The first team have had an absolutely incredible first half of the season, sitting at the top of midlands 2A in BUCS, 2nd in Div 1 of WWHL, and still in the race for the cup! We have scored 80 goals in the process - so that averages five goals per game - free scoring to say the least. The competition for golden stick looks incredibly tight this year, with Bevis leading the way on 17, then Bean (15), and Hollerbach (13). We look forward to keeping the goals coming in term 2.

Our season began with an excellent and high quality fresher intake. Eva and Becky have added quality at the back, Emma...

Last term the 1st team rose to the challenge of 1A and our new position as a performance squad. The girls have put in the work both on and off the pitch and can boast some impressive wins including against Loughborugh! The S&C sessions have clearly being paying off and we’re playing a faster, and more physical game. As ever, it’s not only on the pitch that the first team girls have been making their mark as they have also been enjoying the social side of the club too… including a rather rowdy curry with the men’s 1st team... We’re looking forward to what this term has to offer as some big...
