Development Plan 2018

The Club's five year Development Plan reflects both the ethos and aspirations of the Club and addresses the aims and challenges identified.

The Development Plan (incorporating a SWOT Analysis and supported by a rolling Action Plan this now being the February 2021 Action Plan version) is intended to be an evolving document and the members of the management committee would welcome ongoing feedback on the plan itself and its implementation.

The Club is the combination of all of its members and relies on the invaluable  contributions of all of its volunteers.  If you would like to volunteer to help in any way please let any member of the management committee know.

The key elements of the Development Plan as adopted in 2018 are as follows.


Promotion for the M1s into the new South Division of the National League and ultimately back into the Premier League.

Consolidation for the W1s this season followed by promotion back into the National League.

Continued Success

Building on the success of the Club's Colt and Mini sections and continuing  to contest and win County, Regional and National competitions both indoors and outdoors.

A Club for all

Continuing to cater for hockey for all age groups from Minis to Supervets and for all standards from beginner and Back to Hockey to elite National League.

A Club with a home

Continuing to be a Club with a home and to provide members with the excellent facilities we enjoy at Luxborough Lane and a Club of members working for each other for the long term rather than a business offering its wares to those shopping for what they can get rather than what they can contribute.

Fund for the future

Investing towards the future by creating a fighting fund to cover the anticipated costs of replacing and renovating pitches, floodlights and other facilities. A separate Fundraising Committee will be set up to help with this initiative.

Welcome home

Seeking to find additional financial support to cover ongoing and anticipated costs, fund top quality coaching and to enable the Club to entice back its returning talent and new recruits.

Sponsorship We are very fortunate to benefit from the generous support of Higgins Group Plc. Higgins Group Plc is one of the largest family-owned construction companies in South East England. It was formed as the parent company of the Higgins Group of Companies in 1989. The Higgins Group moved to their prestigious new offices at One, Langston Road in May 2005. The development and success of the club would not have been possible without the long term and continuing commitment of the company to our club as its principal sponsor.

It is important that the club continues to attract additional support and sponsorship. We welcome all levels of support (including another major sponsor alongside the Higgins Group) and potential bespoke packages are available to interested parties.

We welcome local sponsors in particular as well as national and international sponsors especially those with an interest in hockey.
