Captain 2016/17 – Jamie Neill
Leagues: BUCS Midlands 3A & MRHA 3rd XI Midlands 1
For consecutive seasons, the UWMHC 3rd XI have managed to compete well in two very strong leagues. With promotion achieved by every other team, it may seem hard for us to seek solace in two mid-bottom table finishes. However, our relegation battles were admirable and led to, without a doubt, the highlight of the season in the form of a 9-0 win against Olton & West Warwick to whom we lost 5-1 earlier in the season. Some say relegation was narrowly avoided but confidence was always high within the team.
Looking to the 2015/16 season, this confidence seems to be even higher. With only 3 club leavers (Joshua Redman, Jack Murphy and James Kenny) and 1 clubman on a year in industry (Oscar Rogers), we hope that a strong fresher intake will help us to a strong finish in both leagues this season.
Why join the 3s? Though other teams may dispute, we have the perfect balance: we take hockey seriously and have a laugh. What to expect: 2 training sessions and 2 matches per week, decent socials, Ollie Hall may or may not take bus circle, the UEA away day will not feature on the fixtures list, Jello won't let go. For less ambiguous details, please contact team captain, Will Dawe.
