Possible Merger Announcement:

On April 19th 2017 initial discussions were held between representatives of Sheffield University Bankers HC, Sheffield HC, Sheffield Hallam University and University of Sheffield regarding the feasibility of merging the two hockey clubs in to one playing entity. Representatives of England Hockey also attended to advise.

Since then the Executive committees of both clubs have met and have unanimously backed the proposals to proceed with investigating the feasibility of merging the two hockey clubs in to one playing entity. Jack Rodgers, Erica Harrison and Saul Halladay have agreed to be part of a working group tasked with carrying out this process.

 

The underlying principles behind this are to:

Promote the growth of hockey in Sheffield,

To consolidate the efforts of volunteers, administrators, umpires, coaches, sponsorship opportunities, junior development and development of facilities fit for hockey in Sheffield.

To better resource the provision of elite hockey in Sheffield,

 

We would welcome your thoughts and valued input. We plan to hold consultation sessions at 7pm at Abbeydale on:

Monday 22nd May

Tuesday 23rd May and

Thursday 25th May.

If anybody would like to be part of a working party then please let me know
