Club communications.

Over the forthcoming season it is proposed that we move all club and team communication onto a single platform, in this instance Team App.

Once you have registered you will included within any groups that are relevant to you, which could be team, coaching, selection, committee, social, clubhouse or whatever. Communications within those group will only be visible to those members, but our management committee, secretary and other selected groups will have the ability to broadcast to the entire membership group, keeping you informed about what is going on within the Club.

If you peel back the layers of Team App you will find that it can do a whole lot more than just send you notifications. You are able to record your availability, check where your next game is and what time you are playing. Tell the rest of the Club what your result was straight after the match and who scored the goals!

Use one of the following links to load the app onto your phone or tablet.

 https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/team-app-your-team-your-app/id625607532 - this is for apple devices.

Terry Edwards.

It is much sadness that I have to report the passing of Terry Edwards, a past member of Fareham Hockey Club.

Terry would not be known by many of the current group as he played most of his hockey in the 70’s and 80’s, when hockey was played on grass. Terry took an active role in not only playing, but also in the administration and running of the Club, when he captained several of the sides. 

He was an energetic very versatile player with a ferocious hit, which he could execute both on the open and reverse sides although some might say the latter was using the wrong side of his stick!

Terry typified the social aspect that is associated with hockey which he shared with many of his team mates of the time. He was part of the Sunday and Festival hockey culture, which has mostly disappeared, where old friends would meet up, do battle on a boggy uneven pitch, then retire to the bar and exaggerate their exploits of that day.

Terry had been very ill for a while and had been cared for by his wife Pat in their West Country home.

RIP Terry, you will be sadly missed.
