Greetings all,

Firstly Id like to ask you all to keep the eve of Wednesday Jan 26th free in your diaries as the mens 2nds are hosting a fundraising table quiz in the Dropping Well. The cost is teams of four people for 40 or five people for 50. Funds are extremely tight so we need to get as many teams as possible on the night. Please spread the word amongst your friends and family and bring along as many as you can!

This weekend sees most teams finally back in action after the extended christmas break.

Following their 3-0 win away to Weston last weekend, the mens firsts aim to hold onto their league position in a match against UCD played at home in Alex at 4.45pm.

In Claremont Rd the Ladies seconds will kick of the days hockey at 12.15 when they play in the quarter finals of the cup when they take on Botanic 4ths.

Following that game the Mens seconds begin their Irish Junior Cup campaign with a home game at 2pm against Dublin University. This is obviously a big game for the lads and if you're around on Saturday they would appreciate lots of support!

Elsewhere in Dublin 4, the Mens thirds are playing away to Pembroke 4ths - lets hope they go one better than the draw they got against the ladies firsts on Tuesday eve!

In Division 6 the 4ths are away to Corinthian 4s and will be hoping for three points to get closer to Skerries who are currently 5 points ahead at the top of the table.

The 6ths get another week to prepare for the resuming of the season as their match against Wicklow is postponed.

Finally on Sunday the Ladies 1sts take on Loreto 3rds and will be all guns blazing in an attempt to retain their position at the top of their league.

All in all this weekend promises to be a great one for both playing and watching hockey. Best of luck to all involved.
