Leagues: BUCS Midlands 4A & East Midlands Premier League in MRHA
Welcome to the 4th team of the UWMHC - the legendary Team Value.
The 2014/15 season has been huge for the Magmen of the 4th XI - securing promotion in our Saturday league and just missing out on promotion in BUCS, finishing 3rd. Looking towards the 2015/16 season there are two clear goals for the team: consolidation of our place in the West Midlands Premier League and promotion from Midlands 5A in BUCS. With a lot of the core team remaining, such as left back Worm (Matt Holmes) or the ever present Sherminator (Andrew Creswick), the above goals should be very achievable - especially with a good fresher intake.
Team Value is also quickly building a reputation for having the most fun out of all of the teams. Housing both social secs for the coming year (Craig Nannestad and Ollie Hall) the team is sure to continue the trend of causing trouble for the exec. This year in particular the 4th XI has held numerous socials that left the rest of the club envious. There will be many team based socials throughout the year, particularly at the start - an excellent opportunity to get to know the guys and become comfortable within the team. We will also be doing shared socials with the 3rd team - who share the pitch we use at training and of course weekly circling with the whole club (you're sure to find out what this is soon!).
If you are at all concerned about any lack of hockey experience you may have don't be! We have members of the team who had never picked up a hockey stick prior to university. We will be having a member of the 1st or 2nd team starting each training session with basic stick skills and, by playing four times a week, you're sure to pick up the game very quickly.
If you have any queries/issues please feel free to contact me - I'd be more than happy to help,
