Welcome to the new hockey season everyone!
And a special welcome to all our new members that have joined us this year!
In previous years the club captain has attempted to keep you all up to date with what is happening across the club with weekly updates. I will certainly try my hardest to keep this going.
Preseason has been in full flow for a number of weeks now so I hope you have managed to make it along to training.
This weekend brings the start of some of the teams first competitive fixtures. The Ladies 3s will travel to the borders to take on Fjordhus, while the M2s take on Inverleith.
Supporters on the sideline are always appreciated so if anyone is free then pop down to one of the games to cheer on your fellow club members! I will report back on the results of these games next week but if you cant wait that long check out the Facebook Social page or the clubs Twitter and Instagram pages for more info.
Back to Hockey
I am sure most of you will be aware that the club are running a Back to Hockey event starting on the 18th September. This event if for adults (over 16s) who may be interested in getting back to hockey after a few years, or those that have never played before and fancy trying it out.
Please spread the word of this event among anyone you feel may be interested. More information can be found at http://www.esmhc.com/backtohockey. We will also be looking for some volunteers to come along and help with the sessions so get in touch if your interested.
ESM Club Social Events
The first club social is booked for the 1st of October! This will be held in the clubhouse and the plan is to run a games night! Great way to get to know your fellow club members and for some team building! More information regarding this to come soon but get the date in your diary!!
