Reading Ladies 4′s 2 – 3 South Bucks Ladies 2′s

By Reading Hockey Club • Apr 14th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

Saturday 12th April Well done to all who played. From a 2-0 deficit at half time we fought back to level the game (brilliant goals by man of the match Jess – complete with new stick- and Tracy H) only to see the game snatched away by what must have been the lightest of glances [...]



Reading Ladies 4′s 2 – 1 Sonning Vets

By Reading Hockey Club • Apr 2nd, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

Saturday 29th March The sun was shinning, the crowds were gathering, and we had a full team with subs to spare. A battling team performance saw us running off (well OK running might be a bit of an exaggeration) as winners (goals S and Clare) and moved us off the bottom of the league table [...]



Reading 4′s 0 – 5 Thame Ladies 2′s

By Reading Hockey Club • Mar 16th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

March 15th 2014 Having lost Heidi and Lucy to the 3a’s and 3′s it was particularly good to welcome Rachel back after her recent injuries. She didn’t look like she’d been away, though what the opposition made of her prayer like pose on the side line is anyone’s guess! The most memorable moments of the [...]



Reading Ladies 4′s 1 – 0 Oxford Fireflies

By Reading Hockey Club • Mar 13th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

8th March 2014 We won! 1-0. Fantastic. Man of the match Jules had a brilliant game in goal. She dived, stretched and made herself an immoveable barrier time and again, at one stage surprising even herself as she tipped the goal bound ball over the bar. Time and again Tammy scared us all as she [...]



Reading Ladies 4′s 8 – Burnham Ladies 0

By Reading Hockey Club • Mar 5th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

Do not adjust your sets: Reading Ladies 4′s 8 – Burnham Ladies 0. With the match being a friendly and many away at half term we fielded rather a composite team, saved from being a distinctly veteran team only by the relative youth of Kelly, Laura and Lucy. Team instructions were to let the ball [...]



Reading Ladies 4′s 0 – 1 Banbury Ladies 4′s

By Reading Hockey Club • Mar 5th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

March 1st 2014 If prizes were won for effort and perseverance, we would have many. Sadly the only way to win in hockey is by scoring more goals than the opposition and yet again we were unable to convert any of the many opportunities we had. Banbury had 2 particularly skilled players who really were [...]



Reading Ladies 4′s 0 – 6 Oxford Hawks Ladies 5′s

By Reading Hockey Club • Feb 17th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

Setting off to play Oxford Hawks with just 11 players is never ideal. Learning that the M40 is closed just as you are about to is even less so. Many telephone calls later we were all off via various different routes. Janice had sensibly set off extra early to get there so it was something [...]



Reading 4′s 0-7 Buckingham Ladies 3′s

By Reading Hockey Club • Feb 9th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

Saturday 8th February Buckingham came, Buckingham won, Buckingham left. Meanwhile back on the pitch we had an audience – nice to see you Nett and Rachel and hope you will both be back playing again soon. Competition for Reading 4′s very own SPLASH is hotting up. Entries this week came from joint men of the [...]



Wycombe Ladies 5′s 1-1 Reading Ladies 4′s

By Reading Hockey Club • Feb 4th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

Saturday 1st February Even more exciting than having a full squad for Saturday’s game and so nearly winning, was the quiet admission by Kelly that not only had she been whisked away to Venice for a surprise weekend by boyfriend Casey, she was now engaged. Congratulations to both of you. I hope you have a [...]



Reading Ladies 4′s 1 – Maori Vamps 3

By Reading Hockey Club • Jan 20th, 2014 • Category: L4, Match Reports

Saturday 18th January Saturday’s match was a novel experience in many ways. First, we were delighted to arrive at the club and discover that the average age of the opposition was marginally older than ours. Secondly, we didn’t use a single ice pack throughout the 70 minutes. And thirdly, we had a particularly good first [...]
