Ali Shearer Runs for Cancer UK!
20 Apr 2017
 
Our very own Ali Shearer is running the London Marathon for Cancer UK this year, please read his story below and donate via the link for this great cause! 
 
"don't have a story linking me to Cancer. I'm fortunate to have had very little to do with it across my friends and family. I work with hundreds of children on a daily basis and thankfully again have had very little exposure to it across my eight years of teaching.  
 
But it's there and I know the day may come in the future and I want to be able to say that I've done my bit to help. Children with Cancer UK are doing amazing work on a daily basis and continue to change lives in ways that most of us will never appreciate.  
 
The marathon and this challenge are certainly changing me and my life throughout this process and I hope that by the time it's done and can look back and be proud of my achievements, but more importantly my fundraising efforts. 
 
Please think of me on these cold winter evenings and Sunday mornings and spare whatever you can to help."

City girls' dev team are league champions
30 Mar 2017
 
Norwich City girls' team have won the development league this season. Fantastic news which means that City are champions of three out of a total of five divisions in the Empresa Norfolk League this year. The City 2s also won the Premier league title and the City 5s the Div 2 title. Great work City! The victorious dev team finished top of their league with 46 points - despite unfortunately having to concede a game and lose the points at the beginning of the season because of lack of availability. The City team finished ahead of Magpies girls on 44 points and Dragons on 38. City were due to play a struggling Dereham team this Saturday, a fixture they expected to win, but the match was conceded because Dereham couldn't field a team. City took the points taking them to the top of their league. Dev captain Kate Houldey thanked the dedicated coaches, both pitch-side and at Wednesday training, the managers and parents for bringing players to matches and supporting from the sidelines. "It's been an amazing season and we've loved it. With everybody's help and our great team spirit we've worked together and improved each week until we finally won the league," she said. "Thanks so much to everybody who has helped, we couldn't have done it without you all. We've had a fantastic team atmosphere and have loved playing together. We won by playing together as a team." After initial availability challenges early in the season, the team was joined by some keen U12 players from the minis and the momentum grew until they were able to field a huge and talented squad every Saturday. Having fun, winning and learning lots - hockey at its best.

Tough Mudder is a 10-12 mile mud and obstacle course designed to drag you out of your comfort zone by testing your physical strength, stamina, and mental grit. With no podiums, winners, or clocks to race against, it's not about how fast you can cross the finish line. Rather, it's a challenge that emphasizes teamwork, camaraderie, and accomplishing something almost as tough as you are. 
 
A small 'elite' team, principally from the Mens 5ths have committed for this challenge, but the invite is open for all adult club members to join us.

3k, 5k, 10k - how far do you run in a match?
23 Feb 2017
 
Do you track your fitness during training and matches? Lots of players do, including NCHC's own men's captain Matthew Brine, aka 'Pies'?  
 
The picture of red, blue and yellow lines shows exactly what Pies was up to in his match where he played on the forward line. It even tracked his route to the pitch - the solitary line on the right in blue!  
 
The data behind this picture, tracked with a Microsoft band, reveals Pies ran 6.5k in the recent Men's o40 master's quarter finals away at Newark. The team won on penalty flicks and now face Stockton away in the semi-finals. Red = fast running, orange = medium running and blue = slow.  
 
Do you track your matches and can you beat 6.5k? Get in touch and let us know how far you run or have any other interesting tracking data. Your recommendations for the best fitness trackers for hockey would also be great - either by email liz@lizhollis.co.uk or via the club facebook page.

Wanted: your nomination for 'club person of the year' award
21 Feb 2017
 
Do you have any suggestions about who should be named as this year's NCHC 'club person of the year'?  
The trophy is designed to honour somebody who has gone above and beyond their club role or playing duties. It could be the umpire who turns out every single Saturday but their loyalty and commitment have never been formally recognised. It might be the official or captain who puts in long hours and effort to make sure the club or team runs smoothly. It could be the coach who goes the extra mile to help players perform better. Whatever it is, if you have noticed what they have done and feel everybody else should too - then please let us know.  
There is a male and a female award and they will be handed out at this year's club dinner dance in May. Let us know their name and a brief summary of why you think they deserve to win. Nominations by 12 March please to club chair Karen Dagless via secretary Harriet secretary@norwichcityhc.co.uk or 07817 826321

City Success in EH Junior Cup Competitions
19 Feb 2017
 
Norwich City's success continues in the Junior Cup Competitions with the U16 Boys joining the U16 Girls and U14 Boys in reaching the Regional Finals. The U16 Boys travelled to Ipswich East Suffolk today knowing they were already almost through. However, with an excellent display of attacking hockey, the boys put this beyond doubt, winning 10-1 and gaining automatic qualification to the Regional Finals.  
 
The U16 Girls had already qualified for the Regional Finals with a game to spare, and topped this off today with a convincing 4-1 win over Norwich Dragons. Finally, after some good results, the u14 Boys were guaranteed qualification when Bury St Edmond's conceded their final game which would have taken place today.  
 
With only the U14 girls narrowly missing out, City has qualified in three of the four competitions, which equals our best season so far. Added to this, with the u18 Boys now in the Quarter Finals of the U18 Plate competition, this is already a very good year for City Juniors at all age levels. 
 
The U16 Boys and Girls and U14 Boys now go into Regional Finals in March, where they will each play against three other teams in a round robin, with the overall winners going through to the National Finals in April. We wish them all well.
