Great to see new faces enjoying back to hockey on Monday evening....

If you want to get involved send Emma Cantrill-Jones / Jamie Cooper a message or turn up next Monday and get stuck in!!

 

Tuesday Evening sees the knock about on the Ellis for all those male players not playing in summer league (7pm til 8:30pm)

 

The Men's Summer 11's recorded a 5-1 win v Mansfield last night over at Beeston. Proper game of 2 halves this one! - Without coach Jamie Cooper present due a bout of illness, Burton struggled to break the press in the first half against a well organised and determined side, but were guilty of playing at a slow pace and not asking too many questions of the Mansfield players, the score was 1-1 at Half Time. Thankfully for the second half Burton upped the ball speed and pace to grind down Mansfield, who failed to trouble keeper Jack Smith in the second half, Burton going on to score a further 4 goals in the second half to come away with a more respectable score line, Goals came from Mark Northcott x 2 (PC, FG) Jamie Jenkins x 2 (FG,FG) and Luke Pelech (FG).

 

On the topic of successful summer league performances, the Ladies 1s are now settled into the top quarter of the table following 8-0 and 5-0 wins on Wednesday evening. Coming up against the likes of Beeston and Boots 1st team players, our ever youthful side continues to prove why Burton deserves to be mixing with the best of them!

 

Friday Evening saw the Friday Night League continue, 4 teams competing in an inter club mixed 9-a-side games.   Another great night of Hockey at the Ellis enjoyed by all with loads of goals scroed.    A massive thank you to the umpires who gave up their time.    If anyone would like to be involved then please contact Jamie Cooper.
