How our sessions will work

Our first few sessions will be about getting back to grips with hockey for those just coming back, covering some of the basics in fun engaging exercises and playing games to finish the sessions off. We then hope to add to the hockey sessions, with enough commitment to the idea, a social gathering in the clubhouse at Foxgrove Road, as we believe that for those coming back to the sport that the social aspect of meeting and spending time with new and old friends will help you feel welcomed back into the sport.

Hope to see you all there on the 10th May, Please make sure you sign up so we know you are coming and that you can be in line for the rewards.

Regards

Chris Blaney

Bromley and Beckenham Boys win the London Youth Games Hockey Tournament

A team of boys from Bromley and Beckenham U14s pulled off a great result to win the London Youth Games hockey competition.

The team, comprising Liam Writer, Liam O'Leary, Harrison King, Joe Furzer, Barney Spear, Sacha Jennings, Fionn Sparrow, Enda Connolly, Elliot Dodds, Conal Sparrow and Ali Valder made a great start to competition winning 4-0 in dominant and stylish fashion in the first game of the day on the scorchingly hot World Cup Quarter Final Saturday. 

They followed that up with a 3-0 win with Ali Valder coming to the rescue on a few occasions - setting up a the last pool game against Lewisham to see who would top the group.  The boys pulled off a very comfortable 1-0 win which rather flattered the opposition, although the did nearly equalise with the very last hit of the game.

The semi-final was against a very good Southwark side, but once Barney had accidentally dispatched their most dangerous player at a penalty corner - the boys went to record a comfortable 2-0 win. 

The final pitted the boys once again against Lewisham.  The scoreline does no justice to the game as the boys again dominated the match winning 1-0 with a Barney Spear penalty corner settling the game.  The performance was so complete that Lewisham only managed to get into our circle once in the game and managed no shots at all. 


All in all a great day - and the boys played with real skill and showed great attitude and application all day. 

Look out for the celebration evening!
