January News

 

We’re nearing the end of the Christmas break so it feels like a good time for an update!

It has been a very successful first half of the season for all of our teams…

  • The 1sts are top of the Central Division 2 table and undefeated in all games so far this season.
  • The 2nd XI are topping the West District Division 2 table having won every game so far this season.
  • In their first season, the 3rd XI are sitting 4th in West District Division 3.
  • As for the ladies, they are currently third in the West District Ladies Division 3.

We are in a great position going into the second half of the season, and more importantly the teams are enjoying themselves.

Simon 100

When we first started up in 2009 we could only dream of being the club that we are now. December saw another landmark in Rottenrow BlueSox history; Simon Smith hit 100 goals for the club! A fantastic achievement and thoroughly deserved.

Well, all that remains is for us to wish you all a belated Happy New Year. Oh and if your New Year Resolution is to give hockey a go, come along to training, it’s back tomorrow night (15th January), at the National Hockey Centre from 8pm.

If you are interested in Top Goalscorers,  Man of the Match recipients and Goalkeeper Goals per Game we now have a regularly updated stats page for each of the men’s teams. You’ll find it in the menu above, or click on one of the following links… 1stXI, 2ndXI, 3rdXI or GKs to go to your page of choice.

Just a quick reminder that Fitness Training is on a Tuesday night at ClanFit, if you haven’t been yet I hear it’s worth it! Also, hockey training is on Wednesday nights at the National Hockey Centre. Everyone is welcome to pop along to training, whether you are a hockey novice or a seasoned old-timer! It’s a great way to meet the guys and see if you like what you see with Rottenrow.

Finally, the Commonwealth Games tickets are on sale again this week (check their website for details). If you weren’t lucky enough to get some hockey tickets the first time around good luck this time. It will be awesome to watch the Games on our home pitch!
