COWHC Ladies 1s vs Old Kingstonians – 27 Sept 2014

We won 6-1
I had to go back in the annals of time and dust down the match reports from 1884 to find the last time that the mighty COWHC Ladies 1s scored such a thumping victory in their first league match of the season.
It was exceptionally muggy on the pitch by the river, and OKs were using their new super-bouncy astro. This was great for us, as we train on a super-bouncy pitch and yet rarely play matches on them.
Going an early goal down is something we’re quite used to. Subsequently picking ourselves up and thumping 6 goals past the opposition is something we’re not. Some will call it a fluke, others will have seen the skill involved to slot home an equaliser with your eyes shut and facing away from goal … but they all count and, with Alex on the scoresheet, the mighty COWHC started to show what their relentless early season fitness training has done for the squad. Out of breath, puffing like steam trains and with tomato-faces all round, we managed to string together some beautiful hockey. The defence were stalwart – sometimes orthodox and sometimes quite the opposite – but highly effective nonetheless, while the midfield found a densely populated forward line a great target to aim for. The forwards soared and switched and ran rings around the OK defence … and the goals rained home. Two cracking strikes from AJ, a bamboozling run from Nicky, a classic Forsh finish and a poach from Hannah H gave us a 6 goal total and 3 glorious points in our first crusade of the 2014/15 league season.
Irritatingly, Woking put 6 straight past OCs, so we can only claim 2nd position this week in Surrey Div 2 … While there’s still a huge amount for us to work on, it’s a great start to the season. Well played everyone!
Thank to Martin for umpiring, Netty for supporting and AJ for showing us that even the player-coach is allowed to miss the odd sitter from the P-spot.
The team was Sharon, Chloe, Santy, Lena, LBell, Hannah Mc, Becky, Nicky W, Alex, Katy Dicko, AJ and Hannah H.
PoM votes were 1 each for Santy, Lena, Katy and Nicky, 3 for Hannah H and 5 for battling Becky Forsh.

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.
