Already fitness training is taking place in the rural atmosphere of Stewart Park. Thanks to Michael Shea and Tom Lawson. Are you taking advantage of this? Do you need to?

 

Well done to everyone who took part in the Summer League. We finished midway in 5th position. Thanks, again, to Michael Shea for his organisation.

 

On the financial side, can I ask all members to settle any

England Hockey:
 
Sports agreed on way forward for artificial pitches

 

New guidance drawn up by four sports bodies will ensure the right surfaces are installed in the right places, delivering maximum value for investment in pitches.

 

The last decade has seen an explosion in the number and type of artificial pitches. But, with some surfaces only suitable for certain sports, some of these pitches did not have the most appropriate surface to meet the needs of local sporting communities.

Direct Debit:

 

With the new season rapidly approaching the club feel it is time for all members to give consideration to the Direct Debit system of paying your yearly subs and match fees.

It is a painless easy way of parting with your cash that takes away that worrying feeling of being pressurized into handing over money each Saturday.  It is also an efficient way of keeping the clubs finances healthy.

Summer League:

 

This year was another successful Summer League campaign for Wilton Hockey Club.  The “friendly league” was played by the club in the way in which the competition was set up to be played.  We had a mixture of age and ability playing in the same team, and invited new players to come and play for the club.  Please see Wilton’s Summer League statistics (Right):

outstanding debts before we start and to be ready to make arrangements for this coming season. As you all know, we are non-profit making and ALL our funds cover our outgoings - just!

 

Thanks to everyone taking part in the, now, annual sponsored hike. The funds raised were a real lifeline for us last season and I'm sure the Handicapped Fellowship were grateful too.  This year's charity is Zoe's Place, the children's hospice. Thanks again Michael Shea and all helpers.

 

I'm sure everyone is hoping to build on last season. Our first team had a strong second half to the season. Let's hope we can build on this. Our seconds had a hard season but, to their credit, continued to battle right to the last game.

Hockey Board, Football Association, Football Foundation Rugby Football Union, Rugby Football League, Sport England) have all committed to using the new guidance for selecting the most appropriate artificial grass pitch. 

 

Sport England is recommending that all planners, schools, universities, clubs and local authorities that are considering installing an artificial grass pitch also follow the new guidance.

 

The guidance document sets out which types of artificial pitch are appropriate for each of the four sports – and at what level.

 

A simple four-step guide explains how to select the right type of artificial grass pitch to meet local demand.

 

Minister for Sport and the Olympics Hugh Robertson said:

They should have a better season in Division 4 with another season together.

 
The Indoor Team have a lot to live up to after winning the Plate Competition last season. Well worth coming to support if you're not playing.
 
Thanks in advance to our umpires and non-playing members - they show a true club spirit which has long been a strength of Wilton Hockey Club.
 
Finally, good luck to all, stay injury free and enjoy!
 
P.S. More thanks to Johnny Couhig and Peter Brewer for all things electronic!

“Getting as many people as possible to give sport a try is one of my top priorities so it’s important that new facilities are multi-use and accessible. As a keen hockey player and a fan of football and rugby I’m pleased to see them all working together to ensure that, where appropriate, artificial pitches are more versatile.”

 

Sport England’s Chair, Richard Lewis, said: 

 

“Sport is at its strongest when partners tackle issues jointly. This guidance will help our stakeholders to make the right choice for their local sporting community when investing in artificial grass pitches.”
