Hi everyone,

After a disappointing loss against Annadale last weekend in the Irish Senior Cup our Mens 1sts will be hoping to put that all behind them as they once more travel northwards in search of a win. This weekends match sees them take on Lisnagarvey in the first game of the Irish Hockey League. The match tips of at 1pm on Saturday and Im sure the lads would be very grateful for any support we can give them. They also are still without a manager - please contact Ger Butler if you would be able to help out.

The Ladies 1sts got back to their winning ways with a 2-1 win against Old Alex 3rds last Saturday- the standard is noticably higher in Division 4 but the girls should be up to the challange if coaches Nathan and Marcus have anything to do with it!

The Mens seconds had a bit of a blip on their league campaign last Sunday with a loss against Pembroke - perhaps a match better off forgotten- they have a day off this saturday so they can think about how not to let that happen again!

The Ladies 2nds played, and won, their first league game of the season with goals from newbie Emma Hewson and ex captain Kate James - a great start of the season for them - keep it up girls. The 2nds need a ref for their game this saturday - if you can help out it would be much appreciated - please get in touch with me if you can!

The Mens thirds also fell flat last weekend but will be hoping to regain their recent good form for their home game to Weston at 12.30 in Claremont Rd on Saturday.

The only win for our men last weekend, the Fourths had a decisive 6-1 win over Monkstown to move them into third place in their league. This Saturday they take on Corinthians away at 12.45.

Finally the Fifths made their glorious come back to the hockey scene last Saturday with a high scoring match against Bray...unfortunately they were on the wrong end of the 9-2 scoreline....They take on Navan away at 2.30 this saturday in the hope of changing their fortunes.

Final reminder to get your entry in for the premiership Last Man Standing Competition - please email Vinno at vinno1973@gmail.com if you want to enter or see the YM facebook page for more details!

Good luck this weekend one and all - bring home the bacon!
