It was the first full programme of hockey on the new pitch at Lucas Lane and the new club house was buzzing with excitement all day. Seven home games on two pitches; six sparkling new changing rooms with hot showers; drinks flowing continually over the bar; hot food frequently appearing from the kitchen and kids running everywhere enjoying the new facilities. “Hockey’s coming home!”
On the pitch there was mixed success for the Blues with six wins, five defeats and draw. Both first teams christened the new pitch with good victories and the Men’s 6s, Ladies’ 3s, Ladies’ 5s and Men’s 5s also took 3 points. The Men’s 7s were held to a 2-2 draw with Luton.
Unfortunately, the Men’s 3s could not capitalise on their maiden win last week with another three points. The Men’s 4s were on top of Berkhamsted, but a short spell of poor play let the visitors back into the game for an ultimately disappointing Blues defeat. Both second XI sides lost their games away from home and the Ladies’ 4s could not defeat Bedford at home.
