Russets Club News

Matches at NEW ground on Saturday 4th Nov

All senior home matches will be played at the new ground this week, across both pitches.  This builds on the success of last week's two afternoon matches, after which there was a good vibe in the clubhouse.
I'm looking forward to similar success this week, especially as we have FIVE home matches.  Pitch 1, which has not previously been used, will host consecutive matches from 10am, featuring the Ladies' 2nd XI, the Men's 3rd XI, the Ladies' 3rd XI and the Men's 4th XI.  On pitch 2, the Men's 1st XI will start at 2.30pm.
It would be great to see a large crowd, but please share cars wherever possible to overcome the shortage of parking spaces.  It is likely to be raining, so please take care to avoid treading mud onto the hockey surfaces.
Come on you Russets! 

Midweek Training Details

We continue to work towards 21st Oct as the date for our first weekend matches on the new pitches, but midweek sessions continue in the meantime at our traditional home.
The schedule for Russets hockey training is as follows:
Tuesdays, 7pm to 8.30, are for Men's General Training, which is aimed principally at those intending to play senior hockey on Saturdays. Newcomers are also welcome, so feel free to bring a friend.
Wednesdays, 7pm to 8.30, are for Ladies' Training, which is aimed at similar groups.
Thursdays, 7.30 to 9pm, are for Men's Performance Training, which is aimed principally at those in the Men's 1st & 2nd XI squads.
For all sessions, we like to encourage social interaction afterwards, whether to discuss last week's match or to plan next week's, so please leave some space in your diary for that.
