Ladies 3rd

Romsey Ladies 3rd XI suffered a frustrating defeat at the hands of local rivals Eastleigh 2nd XI. Romsey started off well, producing some good attacking hockey, but were unable to capitalise on a few early chances, the only short corner for Romsey saw Hilary A put the ball just wide of the post. The game became very end to end, with Eastleigh attacking strongly and managing to get into the Romsey D, only to be denied by a solid defence, with Anne H clearing the ball off the line and some fine goalkeeping by star player Lucie W. The junior element of Romsey played well throughout, with Liz F and Emily W combining well in midfield on the attack, however the Eastleigh defence proved solid and quick to counter. Neither side were able to capitalise on their chances and the first half ended 0-0.
Only minutes into the second half, a ball crossed the D to a waiting Eastleigh player, who found the backboard with a well struck shot. Romsey kept up the pressure, producing more penetration through the midfield, but Eastleigh defence was solid, cutting out any ball that managed to penetrate into the D. A rare shot by Cat G hit the post and trickled in front of the goal, but there was no Romsey player to put it in the net. Eastleigh also kept pushing forwards and managed to grab a second goal from a ball across the D which found an unmarked player ready to pounce. The final result of 2-0 to Eastleigh was disappointing and the home side must do better to keep possession, get the ball into the D and produce more shots on goal.

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

  • 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.

  • Ladies 2XI Captain : following Bethan’s amazing three years as captain she is stepping down.

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.

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.
