Three More 'Gold' Medals heading home to Timperley !
What a week its been for three of our Ladies 2's down in Cape Town as the Hockey Masters World Cup ! They only came away with three winners medals (the medals are actually an eco version and made of wood). Huge congratulations to Lou Hutchinson (O50's) and Sarah Impey and Debbie Chalcroft (O55's) on a fantastic tournament and helping bring home a haul of medals across the age groups - overall the teams returned with five Gold, two Silver and two Bronze medals to add the four Golds won in Nottingham in August. The girls tally adds to David Hans Gold for the O40's so not a bad haul for a northern suburban club !

Tonight there's a £200 snowball prize (have to be in club to win it), a revamped on the night prize and all the regular prizes that your don't have to be in the Club to win ! Buy your £4 entry (per number) from the bar, Nick Burnett or using PayPal - follow link below for detail
