Mixed Cup Round 2:

Eastcote (2) vs (1) Romsey

Scorer: Hendy

After a fantastic first round win against Isle of Wight, the 2nd round draw saw Romsey set up to play away against Eastcote in north-west London. Eastcote would provide tough opposition, as an experienced mixed side who were semi-finalists in last years Trophy competition.

With players from all seven adult teams involved, Romsey’s line-up was a fantastic reflection of the whole of Romsey’s senior section. It was fitting therefore that Romsey’s new away kit was donned for the first time, kindly donated by our sponsors Solent Plastics. In what is probably a club first, the entire squad took to the pitch wearing the same kit, and looking the business.

Mixed Cup Team - Round 2

Mixed Team; looking stunning in new away shirts!!



The home side started with a flurry, throwing everything at Romsey. Lukasz Suluja in goal was awarded player of the match thanks to some incredible saves from vicious shots from Eastcote forwards.

Romsey started to find their way forward, with Dave Edwards and Danny Miles leading the way in the midfield, distributing the ball getting everyone involved.

Romsey had a couple of good chances in the first half, with Dave Edwards bursting forward, finding time at the top of the D, but not quite the accuracy. And veteran striker Carl Hendy came agonising close to the equaliser as he uncharacteristically shot over the bar after a melee in the D.

It was Eastcote who found the opener, breaking quickly and finding a free player on the left who smashed in an impressive reverse stick strike to take the lead.

The second half saw Romsey earn a few more chances. Lewis Birch made a couple of tidy weaving runs, turning the defenders inside out and drawing the fowls. The resulting short corners weren’t converted but were a show of intent from the visitors. Miles went close with a flick, Colin Harwood’s shot was blocked and Ruth Manners’ had her shot cleared away.

Lesley Humphreys was tenacious in her efforts up and down the right wing, as she provided powerful crosses into the danger area. Becky Hutchins and Loz Scott turned defence into attack, making tackles and then developing the play up the left.

Romsey found a goal after Emma Bouchard received the ball deep in the Eastcote half. She dodged a tackle and passed into Emily Bradshaw at the top of the D who slid the ball through to the P-spot. Carl Hendy was straight on it and made no mistake, playing it past the keeper to equalise.

Eastcote found another gear and came back hard at the visitors. Romsey were pinned back, with Tracy Nicoll and Bethan Knights working hard to close down the attacks from the wings, and Ben Butcher and Loz Scott putting in a real shift to back them up with well timed tackles.

Eventually Eastcote won a short corner, and took the lead again with a drag-flick into the top of the net.

Despite the result, Romsey can be proud of their efforts as their first foray into the England Hockey Mixed Cup competition comes to an end. Captain Tracy Nicoll said ‘everyone really came together and worked for each other today. I’m really proud of how we’ve represented Romsey HC, and we are already looking forward to getting even further next year.

Romsey would like to thank our away kit sponsors Solent Plastics for helping us to look awesome.

We’d also like to give a massive thank you to our mini-bus driver, photographer and chief bellower Phil Humphreys for his fantastic support and getting us safely back to Romsey.

with the Isle of Wight who travelled over to mainland and provided great opposition in true Mixed style with plenty of fun in an entertaining match. 

The home side started strongly and Carl Hendy and Emma Bouchard both had chances but the IOW goal keeper in inspired form kept them out.

 

Bethan Knight and Emily Slade provided strong attacking plan fro the back to support Danny Miles and Ben Butcher in the centre, they set up Hendy who saw his shot smothered.

 

IOW came in to the game as the half moved on, and played a great one touch move with that went round Dave Miles and Dave Edwards at the back to give Laura Kemp no chance in goal to give the visitors the lead.

 

Romsey were straight back at their opponents and Bouchard and James Fraser combined to cross teh ball in the IOW circle for Colin Harwood to take a first time shot past the keeper to equalise.

 

Romsey were on top and Tracy Nicoll combined from left back with Fraser and Miles to move the ball upfield. A pass in to the circle hit and IOW foot, but as they stopped waiting for a penalty corner, the ball ran through to Ruth Manners at the far post who calmly pushed it in to goal to put Romsey 2-1 up.

 

The second half saw IOW streteched as they pushed for an equaliser, while Romsey were top. Lesley Humphreys was denied a hat trick of chances by the inspired IOW keeper, and Ruth Manners saw her chance of a second goal saved with the keeper rushing out to block. Hendy suffered a simialr fate, as the IOW keeper made sure Romsey didnt get a third.

 

Romsey then required a fantastic save from their own Keeper Laura Kemp to keep them ahead, she pushed a high goal bound shot away and made sure the follow up was swept away.

 

With Captain Tracy Nicoll having to go off for a cut on the nose, and with Romsey Ladies Slade, Humphreys and Manners interchanging beautiful passes down the right in teh second half, Romsey deservedly ran out 2-1 winners to progress to the next round.

 

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!
