This year’s AGM is at 7:00pm at The Phoenix Pub, Romsey on Monday 12th June – Monday after the End of Season Do!

Here we will discuss the agenda which is in the process of being established when formalised the main discussion points will be about committee positions for next year, the following positions are available to ALL club members regardless of age!

  • Sponsorship Secretary: to hand over from Alex Budden who has made great resources this year but is unable to commit to another year due to work commitments.
  • Social Secretary: after two excellent social years Emma Bouchard is stepping down, we look usually to have two members in this role ideally one representative from the ladies and another from the mens side of the club.
  • Ladies 2XI Captain : following Bethan’s amazing three years as captain she is stepping down.
  • Ladies 1XI Captain: a role which is being adapted slightly from Erica Jenner who has done an ace job for two years.

If you are interested please contact the people named in the roles currently. Colin Harwood as Club Chairman and also Emily Slade as club secretary could also enlighten you on the roles.

The roles have got flexibility in terms of how many people do them and what you do with the role. The main stipulation is you attend as many of the committee meetings as possible; these are usually held about every 8 weeks during the playing season.

Our committee are integral to the running of the club and to keep it moving forward whilst bringing the club together as much as possible. If you could let me know if you are interested please contact me prior to the AGM.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Romsey 3s  (2-1)  Eastleigh 2s 

scorer Gladstone 2

The game started slowly and Romsey conceded an early goal. However as the game settled down the defence held it together and prevented Eastleigh from adding to their lead.  Star player Izzy Manuel who defended exceptionally well after a series of short corners along with Hillary, Ellen, Lisa and Steph. Goalkeeper Alice Dyer also made  several good saves in the first half.

Towards the end of the 1st half Rosie Middleton made an excellent run down the left wing to the back line,  pushing a prefect cross to Cat Gladstone who equalised to make it 1-1 at half time.

After a stern team talk and slight midfield re-shuffle at half time Romsey upped their game and were attacking well.  Jess Jones and Tasha Isaac played to their strengths with some great passing and communication up through the middle and Romsey came close to scoring several times. 

With 2 minutes to go Lisa Morgan made a brilliant pass from a long corner to Rosie, who then skirted around the Eastleigh defenders making a smashing cross to Cat who scored again!

The 3 subs on the sideline went wild and kept cheering all the way to the final whistle.

A great result again which makes it 5 wins from 5 matches!

Romsey 3  V Havant 4

3-1

Not the best start with some poor marking and all a big sluggish from the whistle, but after Havant got a goal early on we stepped up our game, with some good passing and Rosie Middleton working hard on the wing.

We had a few chances up front with Captain Cat Gladstone and Ruth Manners pushing Havant defence but they prevented any goals.  With encouragement from the sidelines the team started to gel and with good communication got some great runs and a great moment  when Pam Mew and Ruth worked  together to push through Havant players but Romsey remained 1-0 down half time.

Feeling positive going into 2nd half Pam equalised after only 2 Mins!  Shortly after she had us all cracked up trying to leapfrog  over a player she was about to collide with!

16 mins in to the second half after a flurry of yellow tops, Captain Cat scored to give Romsey the lead.

We continued strong  in particular star player Ellen Saunders, who made some great tackles and drove up the sidelines  with Izzy Manuel. In the last few mins Sarah Macleod blasted a shot into goal making  the final score 3-1.

A special mention goes to Romsey’s dogged defence of Hilary Andrews, Anne Harding, Steph Andrews, Lisa Morgan and Ellen Saunders, plus Goalkeeper Alice Dyer, who went through the whole match without conceding a single short corner.

Geared up for a great game on the back of last week’s win, the ladies 3s were feeling positive and started strong with some great passing among the midfield and forwards. However, a strong, young Southampton midfield managed to get through the Romsey defence and score past goalkeeper Alice Dyer to take an early lead. Shortly, after Sarah MacLeod’s great run, passing to Cat Gladstone on the left who struck diagonally for the waiting Parminder Mew to calmly pop the ball past the Southampton keeper to equalize.

Romsey adjusted formation in the midfield for the second half and dominated, with Tash Isaac and Jess Jones dominating. They deservedly took the lead when Parminder‘s pass allowed Julie Evans to turn and shoot into the corner of the goal. Romsey’s defence was unbeatable.

In the last few minutes newbie Tabby looked to have scored only to have it disallowed because it skimmed her foot!!

Well deserved 2-1 win against a friendly and fairly evenly matched team.

Romsey Hockey Club celebrated the end of the 2015-16 season in style, with a black tie dinner and dance hosted in the Edward’s field.

Awards were presented and it was a time to reflect on a successful season for the club, which sees three out of the four mens teams gain promotion, and a record number of juniors stepping up into adult teams.

All club members are invited because we need your say on key decisions ahead of the 2016-2017 season.

The club has achieved greatly this season with 3 senior team promotions and our all time highest number of juniors reaching Hampshire and more! There is also so much to look forward to with building starting at Ganger Farm towards the end of May which we will gain a brand new pitch and clubhouse in 2017 as long as all goes to plan!

The club simply would not run without its committed and enthusiastic committee and we have two exciting opportunities to join it! As it stands the Ladies 3 XI captain has been snapped up and we have filled a new position already for Sponsorship Secretary.

But, “How do I become a part of this awesome committee team I hear you say?”

Well, you’re in luck because as it stands we have to vacant positions on the committee Ladies Club Captain and a Press Secretary (male or female). Want to know more? Feel free to ask the current committee members Becky Hutchins (LCC) and Emily Bradshaw (PS) or myself (Emily Slade) for further information about these roles and what they entail.

The committee meet once every 6 weeks or so during the season always on a Monday at the Sun Inn at 7:30pm and meetings are normally done by 9:30pm.

Looking forward to seeing you all the AGM!

Kind Regards

Emily Slade.

Romsey Ladies 3s (6) vs (0) Yateley 4s

Scorers: Gibson 3, McLeod 2, Gladstone

The Ladies 3s finished their season in style with a comfortable win over Yateley, leaving them 8th in the league and well clear of relegation.

Romsey dominated from the start of the game, with midfielders Sarah McLeod and Megan Bowles playing particularly well. Elaine Gibson opened the scoring with a powerful strike from the edge of the D, before Sarah McLeod added a second from close range. Shortly before half time Romsey scored again when Gibson provided a perfect cross for Cat Gladstone to hit a first-time shot from the top of the D.

The second half followed a similar pattern. Elaine Gibson added two further goals to complete a well-deserved hat-trick, but the best goal of the game came from Sarah McLeod, who picked the ball up in the centre circle and ran through the Yateley defence to score a brilliant goal late in the game.

This was a solid season first season on Division 5 and the team will be hoping for more of the same next year.
