The mini pitch is OUT OF BOUNDS to anyone participating in matches at the weekend.  This is due to the amount of sand that is being taken on to the water based pitches which have recently been cleaned.  All players, umpires, coaches and managers should be cleaning their shoes before they play as this helps prevent cross contamination and keeps the pitches slime free!!.   At weekends all running and stretching which forms part of a players warm up should be done on the overflow car park behind pitch 1.  Any stick and ball work can then be done once the team has access to their allotted pitch.  Captains please remember to tell your opposition of these arrangements.   Please do your bit to help us preserve our facilities.

Ladies 1 v Crostyx

Old Loughtonians Ladies 1s started the second half of the season with a 4-1 win over local rivals Crostyx.


Ladies 3 v Waltham Forest 3

Everyone worked hard, not seeming to show any lethargy, despite this being our first game post- Christmas. Our presses at free hits worked extremely well, forcing errors from WF.


Indoor Hockey

The U16 Boys will be travelling to the West Midlands this weekend to compete in the England Hockey Junior Super 6s competition after being crowned Regional Champions before Christmas.

The U18 Girls rounded off their indoor season by finishing 4th overall in their age group at the #indoorhockey19 Championships This was their best performance in this competition over the years and they made some impressive wins along the way.


Jaffa Super 6s line up confirmed

Teams in action on 2nd February at the Copper Box arena are for the women see East Grinstead, Bowdon Hightown, Sutton Coldfield and Buckingham do battle, and for the men Surbiton, East Grinstead, Holcombe and Wimbledon.


Governance Review

Following the recent consultation process England Hockey ("EH") issued their revised proposals on governance and structure at the end of December.  For the first time the proposals included indicative guidance on how new Area leagues might look and where and who our teams might be playing from 2021.

Having reviewed the document and spoken to other local clubs similarly affected, your management committee has advised EH:

(a) that OLHC would be in favour of the proposal to implement uniform rules and regulations across all leagues in England; but

(b) that OLHC could not support the proposal to replace the current 5 Regions with 8 new much smaller Areas and sub-areas (1/6th of the size of a Region) for our teams to play in.

Full details are set out on the club website in the News section.  Please read the submission we have made to EH and provide the management committee with your feedback.  The AGM to vote on the proposals is in March.

We have spoken to EH who have confirmed that the indicative proposals are far from set in stone and that they will seek to produce revised proposals based on what we and other clubs advise.

Your committee will be working with EH, East and other local clubs to try to find a solution which is in the best interests of members

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. 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.

Members introducing sponsors to the club (or sponsoring players or the club themselves) will benefit from free annual membership themselves. Please contact our chairman ( or the club office ( for more information or with any proposal.
