Catch up with all the Blues News as we enter the final furlongs of the 22-23 season - from U10's to the 1's !

Full steam ahead now to the conclusion of the 2022-23 league season - ahead of a short break and then Summer Hockey! Come down to the Club this weekend for all the hockey, 300 Club, Cheshire Minis, Eighteen Hockey pop up shop and a new guest beer in the bar - Stubborn Mule!

As we reach the business end of the league and cup season congratulations go to the Ladies 2's who last weekend secured promotion into North West Premier Division next season with three games to go! 9 points clear and 3 to play just one more point will bring even more celebrations as we take the title. Well done to all involved, coach Mat Gotts, Captain Kirsty Bass, and Manager Eileen Bass and all the players.

Hockey Round Up
Keep up to date with all the results, league tables and fixtures at
THC Fixtures, Results and Tables for all senior teams and U14 / U16 and U18 teams.

- a slip up by Leeds M1 has opened it all up again in Mens Conference North as we are now back the same points as Leeds but have played a game more. M1 will be chasing down everything towards the final clash of the season v Leeds on 2nd April (away) - today they head to Sheffield Hallam after bouncing back to winning ways last Saturday under the lights 5 -2 v Ben Rhydding

- Ladies 1 head to Fylde today after dropping points to a much improve Durham Uni 2s last weekend. Sitting 4th in the table the 1's the squad look to consolidate and finish well to build again next season. This is a big turnaround from last season and its good to be focusing on foundations for next season on and off the pitch rather than the relegation battle we were in last season.

- M2's are sitting 5th in the NW Prem - the highest place 2nd Team which is a great achievement in out first season at this level and great work by Albert, Ross and the lads to really make a mark in Prem and consolidate on previous seasons.

- M3 romp on and with another win last weekend have scored 155 goals this season - but still only sit 1 point clear of our neighbours Sale 1's - so this one really does look as it will go all the way to the final game Sale 1 v Timperley 3. Keep the focus lads and lets get this title over the line

- come down and support the L3 if your can as they remain battling to avoid the drop, with 3 games to go every point will help and all support is really welcome. Keep going girls you play some lovely hockey and we just need some of the M3 magic goal scoring dust sprinkled to help the ball in the back of the net !

- Niall Scott is now hopefully a little more relaxed as M6leap to safety after picking up 6 points last weekend with good wins including a 12-0 thriller v Leigh on Sunday !

- All our other teams are safe and will enjoy the final league games of the season - and the better weather ! The Badger and Beavers are in action too this weekend so why not take a look at our Blue Future if down at the club

- U14 / U16's are rolling on too with NW Junior League Semi Finals / Finals coming up too

- sadly it wasn't to be for the Ladies O35s this year as they went out of the EH T1 Masters Championships to Didsbury Northern, a tough one for the girls but its great to see more our our younger players getting involved in masters and this team has great potential for the future and a LV final !

The Boys U18's head back down to Eastbourne this evening for the 're-match' of last seasons EH U16 T2 Semi Final when we came out winners and went on to win the T2 Final v Hampstead and Westminster. Safe travels to all and after the 14-0 goal fest v Wakefield in the QF we're sure Albert will re-set the lads to focus on discipline and shape continue to let their hockey do the talking!

The U14 Girls are off to Worcester tomorrow for their EH T2 Plate Semi Final - also defending champions. With two excellent wins on the road in Yorkshire at Leeds and Doncaster to get to the Semi Final we're sure Anna M and Nat S and support team will equally get the girls in the zone in the Semi Final.
