Ladies 3s (5) vs (6) Havant 4s

Scorers: Gladstone 5!!

Romsey ladies 3rd XI traveled to Havant with a slightly depleted team of only 10 players.

Romsey made lots of good passing to begin with but it was the home side who scored first. Romsey reacted straight away with Cat Gladstone nabbing an equaliser with a great goal.

Rosie, playing as stand-in goalie, made some great saves against some hard strikes, but by half time it was 3-3.

Half time saw Izzy jump into the goal kit for the second half and both teams battled up and down the pitch.

During the last quarter the Romsey players were getting very tired and Havant managed to get 6-3 up.

To their credit, the visitors from Romsey kept battling. Some great tackling from Elaine Gibson and Rosie in the middle with Megan supporting on the right. Romsey managed to find another couple of goals, taken by the on target Gladstone. Unfortunately, it wasn’t quite enough for a point, but a very impressively fought game ended Havant 6, Romsey 5.

Romsey Ladies 3s (0) vs (0) IBM Nomads

Romsey ladies 3s hosted IBM Nomads in a key match as the teams were only separated by 3 points in the league table. A win for Romsey would see them move up to 6th place.

Romsey were slow to start, allowing the visitors to dominate the early stages of the game. Young goalkeeper, Alice, put in a couple of key saves and the defence worked hard to clear the ball out of the D.

An early short corner for Romsey saw a narrow miss by Sarah Mcleod, from a lovely strike by Julie Evans from the top of the D. Romsey continued to press hard throughout the first half, seeing several more near misses.

In the second half, Romsey played much better passing hockey, with Issy and Megan, who shared player of the match, working tirelessly to drive the ball up the pitch and into the D.

On several occasions, captain Cat Gladstone produced some lovely crosses, but there was no one on the far post to tip the ball in; definitely something to work on.

As IBM started to tire, Romsey had more chances at goal, but just could not find the back of the net. The final score was a frustrating 0-0.

City of Portsmouth (2) vs (2) Romsey Ladies 3s

Scorer: Gibson 2

The ladies 3s headed for Portsmouth in fairly pleasant weather, however as the whistle blew for push back so did the wind and rain!!!

Romsey started well with some lovely passing in the midfield enabling the forwards to carry the ball on. After winning a short corner, Cat Gladstone delivered a powerful shot which Elaine Gibson sent past the Portsmouth keeper.

Unfortunately the home side retaliated by equalizing soon afterwards.

Everyone continued valiantly despite the stormy weather. Cat Gladstone and Elaine Gibson again took possesion in the final quarter where Gladstone passed to Gibson who took it across the D and scored.

Again, Portsmouth came back and matched the Romsey efforts.


Shortly into the second half the umpires decided the adverse weather was making play dangerous and called an end to the game, resulting in a fair result of honours even.

RHC Festive Mixed Hockey Tournament

Twas the Saturday before Christmas, and all across the Romsey astro-pitch, hockey players were waking, preparing their festive outfits…!

It was the Romsey’s Festive Mixed tournament, an annual event giving a chance for players across the club to come together before the Christmas break and play lots of hockey. Players from all senior teams were represented, giving a great mixture of youth and experience from both the ladies and mens’ sections. It also saw opportunity for families to go head-to-head (or antler to pointy ear) as mothers and sons, and siblings took to the pitch to battle it out.

The brown team, consisting of Reindeer’s and Christmas puddings got off to a bright start, taking a convincing win against the Santa’s and nudging ahead at the final whistle against the Stars.

The Elves joined forces with a few Christmas trees to create a green team. With pointy ears flapping and bells jingling, they split the points in a well matched game with the Santa’s.

Snowmen, a fairy and a rather bazaar looking white turkey got off to a slow start as they initially struggled with the tournament rules. However, after a few dodgy touches, the white team began to put it together finding the net against the tiring Reindeer’s, and the wilting Christmas trees.

The yellow team brought together Stars, and a Christmas Cracker who outshone the Elves and just pipped the Santa’s to the points after a cracking game. The Santa’s picked up the pace against the Snowmen with possibly their best performance of the day, attacking with speed that melted their opponents.

After a thoroughly enjoyable morning of hockey, the Snowmen, lead by a Fairy, were crowned winners.

The tournament was finished off by mulled wine and minced pies, with players of all festive species applauding the umpires and organisers for an extremely fun hockey tournament.

Romsey Hockey Club would like to thank Umpires, Parents and Supporters for helping us through 2015, and we look forward to see you in 2016.

Merry Christmas!

Romsey Ladies 3s (4) vs (2) Havant 4s

Scorers: Gibson 3, Issacs

A shaky start came good when the ladies thirds took on Havant in their last match before Christmas.

Confidence was regained early on after Elaine Gibson scored a goal from a short corner, however Havant capitalised on an empty defence and equalised quickly.

Undeterred, the home team kept a positive outlook and a collaborative approach led to further goals. Linking play from defender Lisa Morgan allowed Gibson to score another before half time.

Second half saw a change of goalie. Unfortunately an early break allowed a Havant goal. Romsey kept their heads high, remembering the first half goals, and were able to regain and the lead through two further converted short corners, another from Gibson and one by captain Tasha Isaac, who fought valiantly throughout, gaining star player for this and superb earlier efforts.

Ladies 3s (2) vs (2) Petersfield 2s

Scorers: Gibson

A chilly late afternoon push-back saw the Ladies thirds take on 3rd in the table Petersfield.

After a difficult first fifteen mins which saw the visitors pinned in their own half, Romsey were able to break forward with some excellent interplay amongst the midfield.

The first half saw an good goal from Elaine Gibson with a powerful shot from the top of the D leaving the team jubilant for half time.

In the second half the weather changed leaving a slippery pitch giving way to a few casualties. Early on player of the match, Gibson snuck another goal slipping the ball through the keepers legs to double the lead.

As the game advanced so did Petersfield managing to capitalise on a few lucky breaks. Two unfortunate goals were scored late on bringing the final score to 2-2.

Romsey left feeling pleased with the result and the emerging team cohesion.

Romsey Ladies 3s (0) vs (1) New Forest 2s

Having suffered a pre season friendly defeat against the Lymington based team, Romsey were keen to start the match positively and immediately took the game to the home team. Romsey put the pressure on from the whistle and kept the ball in their attacking half during the first 20 minutes of the match.

Having split the New Forest defence through a combination of precision passes and teamwork, some early opportunities to score were well saved by the home keeper.

New Forest continued to defend well and having taken control of the ball managed to score a goal towards the end of the first half, despite some excellent marking and defence by Romsey players Tasha Isaac, Ruth Manners and Hilary Andrews.

The second half was very evenly matched, despite Romsey attacking into some very strong headwinds. Romsey once again played some great attacking hockey but were unable to get the ball past the Forest keeper.

Some dynamic saves by Claire Godfrey in goal ensured that Romsey came away from the match with a 1-0 defeat, having played some of their best hockey so far this season.

Star player award went to Hilary Andrews for her excellent goalkeeping the first half and solid outfield play in the second.
