Paul Munn GHA Umpire of the Year 2012

22 August 2012 at 13:03

After an unmentionable number of years umpiring at Stroud HC, Paul Munn's sterling service has now been recognised at County level.  We are all aware that without umpires there would be no hockey matches, and Paul's depth of experience, enthusiasm and love of the game were rewarded at Tuesday night's Gloucestershire Hockey Association AGM, where he was awarded the trophy for 2012 Gloucestershire Umpire of the Year.  Congratulations to him and thanks from everyone at Stroud Hockey Club for his continued support.
Erstwhile club chairman, Alan Hooper, now at Wotton-under-Edge, was also recognised, receiving a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Gloucestershire Hockey Association.

Ladies Success in Tournament

10 August 2012 at 10:15

Stroud Ladies 'A' X1 took the minimum 6 players to compete in this friendly tournament in Gloucester.  The players were thrilled and surprised when a flurry of goals meant that they won their group, beating Gloucester, Painswick and Sherbourne.  The fast and furious matches were played on half a pitch and the squad of Aleasha Holder (GK), Angharad Roberts, Hattie White and Sarah Mace from the first X1 were supported by Pauline Edgington and Candice Johnson from the 2nd team.  Candice was awarded player of the tournament - her performance particularly remarkable as she only joined the club in February and she has had a hamstring injury for 6 weeks.  Goals were recorded by Angharad, Candice, Hattie and Sarah with Aleasha and Pauline ensuring a clean sheet was maintained by the defence.  Stroud met Leominster in the next round who play in 'North Division' - 4 leagues above Stroud 2nd X1.  Stroud lost the match!
