Tuesday: 1800-2000 at Wide Lane
Hello and welcome to the team page of Southampton University Men's Hockey Club 3XI. My name is Oliver Brown, a second year Chemistry student, and I will be captain of the 3XI for the 2017/2018 season.
Our team play in two competitions: Hampshire Div 4 (local league) and BUCS (uni hockey league). Last season was a difficult one for the 3XI as lost a lot of players and it was a season of transition. In Hampshire, we escaped relegation and look to improve on some very positive performances in Hampshire and finish in a stronger position this season. In BUCS, we had a better season with some good victories against Bournemouth and Southampton Solent Uni, with a good run in the BUCS cup, which is a league we can easily win if we perform the way we did again and get the key victories.
We play on Wednesdays (BUCS) and Saturdays (Hampshire) with main training on a Tuesday at 6pm. There is also fitness and skill sessions which are open to the whole club. Hopefully, with the help of our new coach, we can push on and make the 2017/18 season a good one for the 3XI.
The Men’s 3s pride themselves on the performances on the pitch but also in the representation at our weekly Wednesday socials ('circles') with the whole club. We then all head down into the 'Palace of Dreams'. There will also be regular Saturday socials as a team to enjoy.
Joining SUMHC was the best decision I made when joining university and, from my personal experiences, I could not recommend it enough to at least try out being a part of one of the best societies at the university and we hope you will stay. Everyone is welcome, whatever team you play for: you are part of a family.
