Heroic U18s bow out in East Region Indoor Tournament
17 Dec 2018
 
Norwich City's u18 Boys team performed heroically in tough circumstances at the East Regional Tournament at Culford on Sunday to finish third. Having qualified for the National Finals in the last three seasons, and winning the Norfolk Championship last month, hopes were high this year. However, the timing of this event decimated squad availability and it was a struggle even to get a team out. 
 
City played the first game one player short against Old Loughts and almost caused an upset, scoring first and hitting the post twice, before a late rally from Old Loughts gave them a flattering 4-1 win. Back to full strength for the second game (but with no subs) we took the lead, before a strong IES side capitalised on a flurry of green and yellow cards to end up 5-2 winners. Finally, with only pride to play for in the last game, our exhausted boys came back to win 4-3 against Saffron Walden with a show of real fight and skill. 
 
Whilst the boys will be disappointed not to qualify this year, they should be extremely proud of the way they played. The squad was: Ben Millett, Cameron Cooke, George Harrad, Harry Paterson, Ben Withers and Harry Basset

U18 Boys Win Norfolk Indoor Championship
24 Nov 2018
 
Last night our u18 Boys retained the title of Norfolk U18 Indoor Champions in an exciting competition at Norwich School. First up, City had a tight match against a skilled and tenacious Magpies team. City went ahead twice through Cameron Cooke and Dan Phillips, only for Magpies to equalise both times, before Harry Paterson scored the winner in a 3-2 victory. Man of the Match was goalie Ben Millet who was quick off the line and thwarted several Magpies short corners. 
 
The second match was all out attack against a less experienced but resilient Norwich Dragons side. City won 9-3 with hattricks for Cameron and Dan, two to Ben Withers and one for Tom Bailey. Man of the match was skipper Dan. City go on to the East Indoor Competition which takes place at Culford School on Sunday 16 December. 
 
Finally, well done to the City U16 Boys team who showed real promise in their first indoor competition. City narrowly lost to Dragons and only a very late goal denied them victory against Magpies. However, the boys played with real spirit and got better and better as the competition went on.

Norwich City HC 2018/2019 Fantasy League is open and FREE for you to start to create your own team
24 Sep 2018
 
Our very own Norwich City HC fantasy league for the 2018/2019 season has opened and you can now create your very own mixed team from players throughout the club. 
 
Visit the fantasy page on the website via http://www.norwichcityhc.co.uk/fantasy/ and begin to pick a player from each team across the club, one player maximum from each team (excluding the GK) and start to see how your team compares with others as the season progresses. 
 
Points are awarded to each player based upon games they play in, appearances, the results of those games, the goals they are scoring (more so for defenders and midfielders than forwards), their attendance at training, plus whether they are involved in coaching and umpiring. 
 
It is FREE to take part, pick your team now and make tweaks during September and October, and after that you will be permitted to make one player change per month. Just login to the NCHC and go to http://www.norwichcityhc.co.uk/fantasy/ and start to have some fun exploring the 100s of players we have playing in our 16 teams across the club.

Walking hockey starts again Thursday 6 Sept
4 Sep 2018
 
Norwich City is restarting its walking hockey sessions on Thursday evenings 6.30-8pm on their home pitch in Taverham. 
 
A couple of taster sessions in the summer proved such a success that walking hockey will now be a regular fixture every Thursday. 
 
Walking hockey is a new initiative promoted by England Hockey which is taking the country by storm. Adding a simple twist slows the game down so that everybody can play - whatever their level of fitness, experience or injuries. 
 
It's easier on the knees, allows you to chat and socialise at the same time - and it's great fun too. 
 
Back to hockey, for returners or brand new beginner players, will run at the same time on the other pitch - 6.30 to 8pm. 
 
To ensure we cover costs coaching fees are increasing to £4 per session or 3 for £10 if paid in advance. 
 
For more info or to discuss the best session to attend contact enquiries@norwichcityhc.co.uk
