Weekly Update - Stars, Snow and back to business as Usual

By Shelagh Entwisle

Check out who was crowned Stars in Your Eyes 2019 Champion and how snow and hockey don't mix !

Well a week chasing our tails to do pitch inspections, cancel game and now juggle rearranging six home league and five home cup games - plus all the away games ! Thanks to everyone involved in getting the decisions made, communicated and contacting the opposition and league / division secretary's.

Men's League games will be re-scheduled to the NWHL and North (Men) Slip date 30th March (unless agreed sooner by club), Ladies League games need re-arranging by 23rd February (CWHL) and North Women's Slip date 23rd March or sooner and dates being agreed and all the EH Cup games will go to Sunday 10th February the EH Slip date. Look out for messages from captains and make sure all players update availability asap.

The only game of the day weekend that survived the weather was the trip to the tropics of Leicestershire and top of the table Loughborough University for the Ladies 1's. A hard first game back against a squad that continues to improve and are on full steam ahead for the Premier Division play off place and top flight hockey next season. Ladies are at home v Sutton Coldfield on Saturday 9th February for the new push back time of 2.15pm and the Men's 1 are on at 12 so come down for the double header.

Half Term Hockey Camps and Master Classes - last chance to get your booking in as Caroline is checking session numbers today to confirm if viable to run so don't miss a place but delaying letting her know your child would like a place ! See full news item

With milder weather and rain it looks like it will be business as usual this week for training and matches next weekend !

Stars in Your Eyes ....the 2019 winner is .....

On a light note we had our first hockey social of the year on Saturday 26th January with the return after a ten year break of Timperley does Stars in Your Eyes - our take on the karaoke based 1990's Saturday Night TV show ! Big thank you to our eight acts who delighted the crowd with an array of dance moves and a range of vocal expertise ! Thanks to everyone who supported the night and came along too as the audience is a big a factor as the acts. Based on feedback it feels like there is demand to run the event again in January 2020 and some of the acts are already planning their return !

This is what and who you missed if you didn't make it !

The Greatest Showman (Ella and Avena)
Lumberjack Song (Gary Fisher)
Weather Girls - Its raining Men (Mens 1)
PJ and Duncan - Lets Get Ready to Rumble (Jenty and Benty
Roe Garden (Noelly)
Nancy Sinatra - These Boots are Made for Walking (Ladies Vets)
Spice Girls - Wannabee (Ladies 1)
Bob Marley - One Love (One Club) (Albert and the girls !)

Take a look at some of our acts - Stars in Your Eyes 2019 - Photos

The audience voted for their top two acts and after voiding some multiple votes submitted by some acts the top two acts for 2019 were crowned .......

Runners Up ......PJ and Duncan (aka Jenty and Benty) - Let's Get Ready to Rumble
Winner ...........Bob Marley (aka Albert and backing singers) One Love (One Club)

Congratulations to Albert who not only made an excellent Bob Marley but whipped up the crowd with his own adaptation of One Love with One Club and of course the backing singers stole the moment too !

Here's the lyrics from Albert's winning entry

One club! One heart!
Let's get together and feel all right.
See the children playing (One club!)
See the children playing (One heart!),
Sayin' give thanks and praise to the Club and I will feel all right,
Sayin' let's get together and feel all right.

Let them all pass all their dirty remarks (One club!)
There is one question I'd really love to ask (One heart!)
Is there a place for the hopeless player,
Who has tried everything just to improve a bit.

One love! What about the one heart? One heart!
What about, people? Let's get together and feel all right
As it was in the beginning (One love!)
So shall it be in the end (One heart!),
All right!
Give thanks and praise to the Club and I will feel all right;
Let's get together and feel all right.
One more thing!

Let's get together to fight this club the best one (One club!),
So when Clubmark comes there will be no, no doom (One heart!).
Have pity on those who can't be the winners
There ain't no hiding place from Mitch, Colin, Jane and Shelagh.

Sayin': One love! What about the one heart? (One heart!)
What about the ? Let's get together and feel all right.
I'm pleadin' to mankind! (One love!)
Oh, Lord! (One heart) Whoa!

Give thanks and praise to the Club and I will feel all right,
Let's get together and feel all right.
Give thanks and praise to the Club and I will feel all right,
Let's get together and feel all right.

Here's some of the video's from the night's performances - we'll try and get some others loaded later this week when we track them down !
