Pat Alden
23 Jan 2022
It is with much sadness that we learnt of the passing of our Vice President Pat Alden. Pat joined the club when Norwich Argonauts merged with Norwich City in the 1993. Pat was a stalwart of Argonauts where she was a goalkeeper of some note. Pat was still playing in goal when the merger took place. She took on the role of Club Captain when the merger occurred, a position she held until 1995. At this point Pat was elected a Vice-President of the club, but also took on the role of 3rd XI captain. From this point until she ceased her Saturday commitments in 2015 Pat alternated between 3rd XI and 4th XI captain continuing in a non-playing capacity after she hung up her pads. Many young players will have been introduced to the Ladies adult game under Pat's stewardship. We pass our deepest condolences to Pats family and friends.

Match and Training Cancellation Procedures
11 Dec 2021
Norwich City Hockey Club - Match Cancellation Procedures 
If you are advised of a match cancellation/postponement then you should undertake the following tasks in the order listed below 
1) Enter the result on the website as Postponed (match off but likely to be replayed which will be the case for most league matches or cup matches) or Cancelled. The reason for this is that the results are linked to Twitter and the postponement/cancellation is immediately visible to all club members and the wider world  
2) Advise your umpires. Even if you are playing away check whether we are providing an umpire. You should be able to access their contact details from our website 
3) Check with other captains whether they are in need of any of your players 
4) Advise your team though the onus should be on them to check with you. 
5) If yours is a home match advise your League Secretary of the postponement 
6) If it was not our Fixture Secretary that advised you of the postponement then please let our Fixture Secretary know so that can sort out the re-arranged fixture.  
If there is any doubt about whether matches will go ahead then the onus lies with the player to check that the match is going ahead. 
The first place to check is the Fixtures on the club website. 
Any postponements/cancellations entered on the website are also automatically created as a Tweet on Twitter  
Contact your captain. 
Your captain may advise you in your Whatsapp group, via email or other means of communication. 
Information may also appear in the News on the website and on Facebook, but there is no guarantee of this.

Training will go ahead whenever possible. If the weather is poor sometimes it will not be possible to cancel training until coaches arrive at Taverham and are able to inspect.

Prostate Cancer Testing Event for Men at TRF on Sunday 24th April
10 Nov 2021
We have been asked by the GFCT charity, based in Warwick, who have been running Prostate Cancer Testing events for men aged 40 and over across the UK for many years, asking whether we want to host an event for them at our ground in Taverham on Sunday 24th April. 
It will cost £20 for the test and qualified nurses from GFCT will be with us on the day to quickly take the blood samples and get them sent off to the lab for processing. It is a great way of early diagnosis of prostate cancer for men aged 40 and over and the whole process takes less than a week from your test to get your result. 
You can find out more using the following link, read more about the benefits to the testing process and also register online to book your time slot on the day. 
You are welcome to share the link with friends and family, we have lots of spaces available so be good to try and make their trip across to Norwich a worthwhile one. If we don't get enough interest then there is a chance the event will have to be cancelled, so by all means invite others if they would like to attend.
