In line with England Hockey, Old Loughtonians Hockey Club Limited accepts  the responsibility to promote the welfare of young people and protect them from harm, in collaboration with the members of our hockey club, coaches, officials, spectators and importantly parents and families. The general principles of our safeguarding policy are that the safety and welfare of all young people is paramount  and that all young people, regardless of age, disability, gender, race, religion, belief, gender reassignment or sexual orientation have a right to be protected from harm.

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.

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.
