New Pitch

On behalf of Bury St Edmunds Hockey Club – Welcome to our Website.

We want the website to become the centre for communication and information both for members and the general community. We hope you find it easy to use and the information contained on it relevant, useful and as up to date as possible. We would welcome contributions to the website from members – match reports, club social events etc. Also feedback on using the website would be welcome. Use the contact form below and we will try to respond in a timely manner!

October update

The new coaching and training regimes are beginning to show results –  having spent some time over the summer building our coaching team and new season programme, it is very pleasing to see our teams doing well.

We welcome Leonie, Joe, Vic, Mike & Mel  to our coaching ranks and thank  all coaches for your continued effort and support.

Our mens 1sts and 5ths are currently topping their leagues whilst mens 3rds pushing up their league. The ladies teams are having a mixed start to their seasons – we have to remember that  the 2s & 3s were both promoted so the standard for them is that little bit tougher! Early successes in our juniors with our U14 girls winning their first game in over a year  and the U14 boys securing a good win over Norwich.

You are now able to register for membership, renew your membership, amend your details and pay your membership fees via the site. We hope to roll out match fee payments and other facilities over the coming months.

New Pitch Project Update – October

Since the Club’s AGM back in May, the Committee, together with the Development Committee have made some significant progress in raising funds for the “New Pitch Project”.

Over £200,000 has now been pledged by members and supporters of the Club through the Loan Note Scheme and for which we are immensely grateful.

The Development Committee are pleased to report that we have now achieved three conditional grant awards from the National Hockey Foundation, England Hockey and Sport England totalling £200,000. Work is currently underway to turn these into full awards. The Loan Scheme, together with Club funds now sits at £250,000, which means that we are nearing our £500,000 total, now reduced due to some helpful VAT arrangements. More news to follow before the end of the year!
