Please note that senior training has now finished for the Christmas/New year break and will resume on Tuesday 2nd and Wednesday 3rd January.
We wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
All home games on Saturday 9th December have been called off due to frozen pitches.
All junior training on Sunday 10th December has been called off.
The U14 boys SYL tournament on Sunday 10th December has also been called off due to the cold weather/likelihood of frozen pitches.
Message from Peter Elsom:
As the run up to Christmas gathers pace and the inevitable panic starts to grow I am delighted to launch this season’s must have item.
All across the country people receive novelty socks from the mother in law and every year they have to pretend how grateful they are to receive another pair of Bart Simpson or South Park Socks knowing full well that they will hide at the back of the sock draw never to see the light of day…………..
Ladies and Gentlemen the wait for something really useful is over as the IES Hockey Club weekend sock arrives this week. This bold and funky sock with large black and red stripes is a sure way to stand out from the crowd and support your club.
Socks come in one size and are ready for immediate purchase in time for Christmas.
Socks can be purchased by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and are available at £8.00 per pair or 2 pairs for £15.00 but hurry whilst stocks last.
