Baby boom leaves Pickering hockey team seeking recruits
2:44pm Wednesday 14th August 2013 in Sport
PICKERING ladies start training again next Wednesday (August 21) in readiness for their Yorkshire League campaign – with new players needed.
The club have two teams in division five of the county league, following the reserves’ promotion last season.
Sessions take place from 7pm to 8pm on Wednesdays on the synthetic pitch at Northern Ryedale Leisure Centre.
Several members of the squad will be unavailable this term due to pregnancy so new recruits are required, and in a bid to attract new members the club are holding an open afternoon on Saturday, September 7, from 2pm to 4pm on the synthetic pitch.
This will be a free taster session consisting of fun challenges and a mini tournament. There will also be the chance to socialise afterwards at the Station Pub where tea is being laid on followed by the club’s annual general meeting.
Coach Hazel Winter said: “We run two teams and anybody aged 14 or older is welcome to join us.
“The first team will consist of committed players who are available every week and whose aim is to get promoted. The second team will be made up of less experienced players hoping to gain experience of adult league hockey, and players who may not have participated for a while and whose family commitments may mean they are not always available week in, week out.
“We therefore offer competitive hockey for everybody, at whatever level they wish to play.”
Anybody interested in joining should go along to either of the sessions, or phone Nicky on 07738 227586 or Hazel on 07552 711896 for further details.
