Croydon & Old Whigiftian Men’s 1st XI v Barnes – WON 3-2 (27.10.12)

Last Saturday saw us take on Barnes. A decent enough unit who are generally pretty organised on the pitch, on the sidelines however one of them sported a green all in one tracksuit, pretty flashy! Read more ›

Croydon & Old Whitgiftian Mens 3′s v Sanderstead 3s – WON 8-0 (27/10/2012)

Two weeks after the derby match against Trinity Mid-Whigiftians, our second lot of neighbours – Sanderstead – arrived at a rather chilly Oasis Academy.

For the second week running we were playing after COWHC 1s, so were able to take heart from their battling victory as we warmed up. Following last week’s minor hiccup on the goalkeeping front we did at least know we were without our regular keeper for this match. So a big thank you must go to James Cornwall for donning the padding and stepping between the posts. I’m not sure what he was expecting, but it probably wasn’t how the match actually played out!

Croydon & Old Whitgiftians Mens 3′s v Epsom 6s – Lost 3-1 (20/10/2012)

Ah Epsom, somewhere that COWHC third team seem to not enjoy travelling to. Last season a hot day, losing one player to injury and another to a yellow card, plus our brave captain Mike Dawson stepping boldly into goal lead to us putting in possibly our worst performance leading to a 3-0 loss.

Croydon & Old Whitgiftian Ladies 1s v Tulse Hill & Dulwich – Lost 4-0 (20/10/2012)

Well, we lost 4-0 and I’m not quite sure how that happened. It was a really close game – lots of end to end stuff – and perhaps TH&D put away 4 of their chances while we didn’t manage to convert any of ours.

Croydon & Old Whitgiftian Ladies 1s vs Old Cranleighans – Lost 1-0 (13/10/12)

It’s tough at the top of the league, as we discovered last week with a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Old Kingstonians. Determined to make amends, we travelled through the early evening gloom and the rain to face Old Cranleighans.

They came out of the traps at top speed and caught us a little on the back foot, forcing us to do more early defending than we would have liked. Bit by bit we found our form and began to play more constructively, but there was still no let up from the pace of this skilful OC team and they slipped in a goal from a short corner before half time.

Croydon & Old Whitgiftian HC Ladies 3′s v Cheam – WON 6-1 (6/10/2012)

As the sun rose on the early morn of Saturday 6th October, a team of 11 awoke, prepared for their duty to their captain, to their team…to their country…ok enough of that, down to business!

For the first time in living memory, most of the team arrived before meet time; with only two hung over from the night before. (El and Pav, both of whom sweated vodka, gin and tonic and the odd lime throughout the game!) despite having 12 on the team sheet, a commendable 11 turned up, however not all was as it seemed.

Croydon & Old Whitgiftian Mens 1st XI v EUHC Gamblers – Lost 3-2 (29/09/12)

This game was the epitome of the saying ‘a game of two halves’…

Going into the first league game without the Captain and Vice due to separate wedding attendance was not an ideal start to the season!  And although we started brightly (3pm starts can mask heavy nights!) within 15 minutes the work rate slipped and the oppo scored a lucky goal, I say oppo, but it actually goes down as our first ‘Own Goal’, unlucky JR!

Croydon & Old Whitgiftian Ladies 1st XI v London Eds – WON 4-1 (22/09/12)

It was another hot shimmery day, although fortunately the temperature had dropped a couple of degrees from our two tropical pre-season friendlies.

Despite our tomato-coloured faces, both games had resulted in victories and confidence was modestly high. There was stick-love before the game: a reunion with a much loved family heirloom and great admiration for Netty’s new Gryffindor wand. London Eds went through a rigorously drilled warm up and we eyed them up warily: a new league for us this season and this was our first glimpse of what we would face. Read more ›
