Seniors/Masters

Just updating the progress of Masters Hockey in Somerset following an
active and successful season and also highlighting future plans.

We are currently running O40/45, O50/55 & O60/65 Mens teams.

The O60/65 team played in the inaugural West Masters Festival in Sept 14
and also entered the England Hockey Cup in which we reached the Plate
Semi-Final where we went out on flicks to Gloucestershire.

The O50/55’s have been less active, not being able to raise a side for
the Festival but they did play a fixture v Wales and would have liked
more fixtures.

The O40/45’s did play in the Festival and also took on the Royal Navy
Masters with success. Plans to play Wales did not materialise but will
do next season

We also have a Ladies O35/40’s team which played in the Festival but has
not been able to find fixtures since

Going forward

– 1 We hope all teams will be able to enter the West Festival at Kings
Taunton School on Sept 13th

-2 We need to recruit more players. Please get anybody interested to
contact me. Note age qualification is the year following eg if you are
40 in 2016 your O40 etc.

– 3 Its likely Mens Masters will soon start at 35 so we are on the look
out for players who will be 35 in 2016. Again anyone interested to
contact me

– 4 We need more fixtures, particularly for the Ladies. Any contacts to
me please

– 5 We will again enter the EH O60 Cup.

Please pass this info on to all your potential Masters members.

Many thanks
