The Weekender – w13 – 8 Dec 2018

      W4  D0  L0 GF: 16    GA: 0   Oh!   This was week 13 and a very unlucky weekend for many.  Unlucky, that is, for anyone who set out to play us. I have now officially run out of superlatives.  There have been records before and will no doubt be records […]

The Weekender – w12 – 1 Dec 2018

      W3  D1  L3 GF: 19    GA: 15   Attack or defend?   This was a more defensive weekend.  This isn’t overly surprising given the 4.1 GF average last week, but the important thing was that the GA average improved. The battle between Attack and Defence is also in the balance this […]

The Weekender – w11 – 24 Nov 2018

      W4  D1  L2 GF: 29    GA: 18   Bang!   That is some turnaround.  Following last week’s mediocrity the results have bounced right back and half of the sides are now in the top two.  Not only that but we have beaten our best GA this season by a distance as […]

The Weekender – w10 – 17 Nov 2018

      W2  D2  L3  PP1 GF: 13    GA: 15   Meh…   How was it?  Were we good? Well, no. So we were bad?? No, not really. Well what, then?  What were we??? Sort of, er, well… Meh. You see the problem is that my expectations have been put up there.  Perhaps […]

The Weekender – w09 – 10 Nov 2018

      W4  D0  L3 GF: 24    GA: 18   100 YEARS ON   It was a Remembrance Day weekend and 100 years since the end of “The Great War”.  It is daunting to consider that the inaugural members of Fleet Hockey Club, formed in 1925, would all have lived through it. But […]

The Weekender – w08 – 3 Nov 2018

      W3  D0  L4 GF: 16    GA: 23   FEUDING FAMILIES   Won three, lost the rest, scored over a dozen, conceded seven more than we scored.  You’d be forgiven for thinking it was last week all over. Then there were the differences.  The ladies struggled with two blanks and conceded 17.  […]

The Weekender – w07 – 27 Oct 2018

      W3  D0  L5 GF: 15    GA: 22   Did you get the Memo?   After a week off for many that were ‘celebrating’ half term it was back to normal with a full eight games this week. Well I say ‘back to normal’ but it seems that we don’t have such […]

The Weekender – w06 – 20 Oct 2018

      W1  D1  L1 GF: 8    GA: 8   Away the lads   With the Army invading – and how dare they use THEIR pitches – we were all away at half term. The ladies, it appears, took being ‘away’ all too literally and went on holiday with no hockey at all.  […]

The Weekender – w05 – 13 Oct 2018

      W4  D0  L4 GF: 22    GA: 18     Unlike the regularity of The Weekender, the season seems to be getting less and less predictable.  But this week had an elegant symmetry to it.  More on that later.  So what happened this week? Well my early vision of a perfect season […]

      W5  D0  L3 GF: 24    GA: 18   The Fog doesn’t misst   This was a close week with the 1s accumulating a score of 7-6, the 2s on 7-3, the 3s scraping a 2-1 and the 4s high-scoring with a cumulative 8-all. Of course it is the individual scores that […]
