We were delighted to take part in the Southwark Girls Can event in Burgess Park this weekend. This is a brand new Female Engagement Programme aimed at increasing the number of girls participating in sport in the park. Lots of sports were delivering taster sessions for girls, aged 14 + for free. Our hockey coaches, Frankie and Molly, were on site to show how to play hockey. #SouthwarkGirlsCan @BurgessSports

Two of our regular Suburban Hockey coaches have starred in international tournaments during the past couple of weeks. Sarah Haycroft scored her first goal playing for England in the women’s Champions Trophy 2014 in Argentina and Paddy Smith is currently playing as goalkeeper for England in the men’s Champions Trophy 2014 India. Paddy played when they beat rivals Pakistan 8-2! The woman have finished fifth in their competition and the men are currently lying top of Pool A, having had a 1-1 draw against Belgium today. Fingers crossed for their next matches which can be seen on sky tv.
Holy Family RC Primary School in Addlestone are the proud winners of this year’s Runnymede and Spelthorne Quicksticks Competition! Well done to the Holy Family team. Head teacher, Steve Tindall, commented,
“We won the Runnymede & Spelthorne Quicksticks tournament winning every game and not conceding a goal all afternoon. For all small school who have only been playing hockey a couple of years I am absolutely thrilled with that. To take a hockey team to the Surrey Youth Games is real testament to the difference made by regular coaching so thank you to Suburban Hockey, and particularly to Ben (the coach), for all you have done”.
