Firstly, Rottenrow HC and BlueSox HC are joining forces to play under one banner – Rottenrow BlueSox! This means we now have mens and ladies teams within the club.

 

3rd XI

 

Following the success of the Rottenrow Men’s 1st and 2nd XI, to keep up with the rapid expansion of the club over the summer and to give everyone a fair chance of a game, we are introducing a Rottenrow 3rd XI for the 2013/2014 season!

The third team will be a great way to make sure everyone is included, after all that’s what we are all about at Rottenrow BlueSox HC. It will give new players the chance to find their feet and more experienced players the chance to share their knowledge and push on themselves.

But where will all these teams call home? Well that’s the next announcement……….

2014 is going to be a special year for sport in Glasgow, the Commonwealth Games is something we are all very excited about at the club. As you may be aware a new home of Scottish Hockey has recently been built at Glasgow Green. This is where the Commonwealth Games hockey matches will be held…..and this is where Rottenrow BlueSox will call home from now on!

Yes, Rottenrow BlueSox are officially moving in to the National Hockey Centre at Glasgow Green! (For a sneak preview check out this Commonwealth Games video).

We are hugely excited about this move and the opportunities it will bring. Not only will it mean we will be playing on the Commonwealth Games pitches, the pitches used by the Scotland team, but it will provide the club with a proper home. Family and friends will, as always, be very welcome to come and support the Row, but this time they will be able to do it from the comfort of a pitchside seat or even the clubhouse!

We’d like to thank Scottish Hockey for this fantastic opportunity.

So we move into a new era for Rottenrow BlueSox – three men’s teams,  one ladies team and a brand new, top of the range home.

Everyone is welcome to join Rottenrow BlueSox HC, whether you’ve never held a hockey stick before or you are a seasoned veteran. Please feel free to contact us, we’d love to speak with you. Even better, turn up at our tournament tomorrow (10th August 2013) and join in the fun!
