Match Day

2017/18 Fixtures

We are always trying to arrange games for the children whether it is friendly one off games or regular tournaments and below are a list of those we currently have lined up for the 2017/18 season:

Currently there are no games for the beginners section as we find that the children are too young for game play, however, we do encourage the beginners to play in the tournaments held internally during the course of the year.

Mixed U10s section attend a monthly tournament at Timperley

Beavers and Badgers are part of a local consortium and have regular friendly/ competitive fixtures.

We also enter England Hockey’s annual In2Hockey tournaments for both the Girls and Boys U10s and U12s Tournaments.

New to September 2017 – March 2018

We will be entering a monthly tournament in Greater Manchester Junior Hockey League (GMJHL) for the Girls U15s and U13s. We will also enter two England Hockey competitions, U14s Girls Development League and U16s Girls League. These additions are aimed to ensure that all age groups have regular friendly/competitive games which is crucial to all player’s progress.
