Annual General Meeting 2018

The IES annual general meeting (AGM) is being held on Saturday 16th June. We are changing the format this year- we will hold the AGM at ISSC as usual but will also have a BBQ and some hockey afterwards to try and make it more of a social event. Please do try and attend.
It starts at 12pm at Ipswich School Sports Centre, Rushmere. The AGM will be held in the sports hall and a pop up bar will be available (as the main bar is being refurbished). Hope to see you there!

IES U16 Boys Regional Tournament Results

Comments from Tony Burch:
“Really proud of Ipswich East Suffolk U16 boys today representing Suffolk in the regional tournament today. The first game could have gone either way against City of Peterborough with Peterborough edging it 3-2. With no break IES then took on the hosts Norwich City and were punished for a slow start with 4 goals going in the the first half. The second half was much better with the final result being 5-1 to Norwich. The final game against Colchester saw IES playing some nice hockey to run out 5-0 winners. Big thanks goes to Ros Conway and Sam Oakley for all their effort and coaching this year. Well done boys!!!”

IES Christmas Party Helps the Homeless

IES juniors and parents enjoyed a great time at their annual Christmas Party day. In spite of a heavy frost we managed to move everything indoors and all age groups from U8’s to U16’s enjoyed some indoor hockey. After the run around all our juniors and parents enjoyed party food which included candy floss and popcorn from love all occasions. Many thanks to all the coaches, managers and volunteers for all your help this year.
The parents provided plenty of food and it was suggested that some of the left over unopened food be donated to the Tesco Christmas Food Bank which I think everyone will agree is a great thing to do.
We hope everyone has a great Christmas and New Year!

Senior Training

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!

IES Weekend Socks

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 peter.jo.elsom@esassociates.co.uk and are available at £8.00 per pair or 2 pairs for £15.00 but hurry whilst stocks last.
