Term 1

2 years ago By Olli Derham

Term 1 Summary from the Pres.

“The clubs fundraising has soared to new heights this year, with the club already far surpassing last year’s effort inside a term.”

Term 1 has been as hectic as ever for the UWMHC, with the club sitting in a fantastic positon to drive forward post-Christmas.

The return to Red has brought good fortunes for the boys who have all performed brilliantly on the pitch. A new Level 3 coach for top pitch has seen some of the best hockey played by 3rd & 4th teams at the University, with both teams striving to improve league positions. Team Chirps have again proved they have the least chat in the club, with their so called leader, not even on Dom tour. Certainly not in my day… On the pitch they look set to achieve their aims and strengthen their position in 2B.

Finally the 1st team are currently occupying the highest league position by the club, since the BUCS records begun. This is a fantastic achievement for all involved, with great credit to Plumber, Kali and the performance team programme for this. Effectively the boys have 4 games left and could finish as high as second so watch this space. TGAL are also primed for promotion on a Saturday. We all know how big a slog Midlands hockey is, so another big 11 games could see a party bus to the league dinner…

Off the pitch, time is flying quicker than Guntash lasts. Circle has continued to get more and more outrageous with the almost weekly chill out room providing the stage for the Wednesday night show. I think a joint social occurred at one stage in the term, however this was so long ago I can’t really remember. Shame there wasn’t something more recent to enjoy. I am right Mr, Chair.

Tour once again occurred. It could have been stress free, but where is the fun in that? Thank you Nick Hulse, Nunes and the Russians. Other than some isolated incidents, Hodor and Emily organised a fantastic tour which I’m sure had more units consumed than ever before.

The clubs fundraising has soared to new heights this year, with the club already far surpassing last year’s effort inside a term. With Dry January being braved by Ralph, Gert and Looseau, this will only continue to rise so please support this and help beat cancer!

Ultimately this year’s Exec has one term left to do as much as we can to bring all areas of the club forward. As usual our Comms sec’s will keep you updated with all things UWMHC, and we can’t wait to welcome back our Alumni for our old, old boys social!


Much Love as Ever
