Reminder: Face Masks

Players should not defend at penalty corners (especially in post man or blocking positions) without face masks. England Hockey reinforces that it is the responsibility of players to provide their own face mask.  Make this the first item on your Christmas list!


A Tale of True Sportsmanship

Within the first 10 seconds of the game one of our players received a nasty head injury and had to go off to hospital to get some stitches. The opposition captain immediately dropped his side down to ten men as we were a bare eleven so we could make a game of it. I thought this was great sportsmanship on his and the team’s part.  I'm sure other teams may not have been so considerate in these circumstances.

If you have witnessed an act of good sportsmanship let me know as this often gets overshadowed by so many other things but is such an important part of the sport!

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.

Could you sponsor or support Old Loughtonians Hockey Club?

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. Support and sponsorship can range from pitchside boards (on either of our pitches) to individual team deals. We welcome local sponsors in particular as well as national and international sponsors especially those with an interest in hockey.
