Team snapshots

Men's 1 - sitting 5th in NWHL it couldn't be closer at the top with only two points between 5th and 2nd place. With a top of the table clash with Alderley (4th) its a big weekend for the Men's 1. Brooklands 2's top North Premier but they can not be promoted (as a 2nd XI) so the Men's 1 are in the thick of it for the National League place up for grabs with Wakefield, Didsbury and Alderley.

Men's 2 - still top NWHL Division 3 by one point and a game in hand - having only lost one game all season to chasers Wilmslow the form guide still rests in our favour with continued focus, discipline and slick hockey to gain promotion. After a aborted trip to Wrexham last week to find a snow covered pitch the lads should have no adverse winter weather at home this weekend - just rain and more rain !

Men's 3 - picked up a vial three points last week and move up to 10th in Division 3 and hope to put in a few more winning performances to secure safety and assist the Men's 2's by taking points off other teams

Men's 4 - after gaining promotion last season the 4's roll on notching up some solid wins and are sitting pretty in 4th place.

Men's 5 - the draw kings lost the pools coupon touch over recent games but pulled back a big win last week at Crewe Vagrants and moved up to 9th.

Men's 6 - the continue to be on a roll breaking all the habits of last season and notching up the table to a very credible 5th place as well as building a great team spirit and loving their hockey !

Ladies 1 - are back in IWHL action next Satuday at home to Durham University so come down and support the girls and lets get off to a flying start. Sitting in 7th place points on the board early will help create some distance with the clubs below with only 3 points between 10th and 7th places.

Ladies 2 - had a good win last week against Prescot and are now up the 4th place in North Division 2 with performances bringing home results.

Ladies 3 - sit mid table - 6th - and host Neston at home this weekend after having last weeks game against Owestry cancelled due to weather so the girls will be glad to get back playing and continuing their run of 3 wins and a draw.

Ladies 4 - have continue to play some good hockey and are up to 4th in CWHL Division 3 and head to Neston

Ladies 5 - sit in 9th place and host table toppers Deeside in what will be a tough game - with a game in hand after the Winnington games was cancelled due to weather again last weekend.

The Badgers and Beavers have both had really good seasons so far playing excellent hockey and thanks to the coaches for working with the next generation of #HomeGrown players and bringing them on so much in only half a season. Through to the end of the season we will be transitioning more players through the system. So some more badgers will start to transition to the senior training and playing along side playing badgers and some Beavers will also start to play some badgers hockey. We will be communicating directly with parents for the players that will be involved.
