Five fantastic Men's hockey teams
The Club started out with one Men’s team; it now has five, including a veteran’s team.
If you’re looking to play for a Men’s hockey team in Edinburgh, we welcome players of all abilities, from people picking up a hockey stick for the first time, as well as those with a higher skill level and experience. New members are welcome to join at any stage throughout the season. For more information please contact us.
Men's hockey training in Edinburgh
For the 2019-20 season, training started on 1 August for the Men’s 1s squad and 22 August for all other Men’s squads.
7:00pm to 9:00pm
There is also mixed fitness training each Monday from 7:00pm to 8:00pm (at the same venue).
Our first team was recently promoted to National League 2, having won the National League 3 Championship in 2018-19, reflecting much hard work and strengthening of the team in recent years.
Our second team plays in and currently leads East District Division 1. This team loves playing great hockey but is also notably welcoming and sociable – some of its members having played together for years. A sprinkling of promising youth players set a fast pace on the pitch – and are warmly supported by the wisdom of their team mates.
Our third team plays in East District Division 3.
Our fourth team is a development team – a wonderful mix of experienced players and energetic youngsters that provides an ideal bridge from the Youth Section to the Men’s squads.
Our Veteran’s team is open to all those aged 35+ (though younger players often play too!). They play once a month at Goldenacre from September to May and take part in the Vets’ end of season tournament too. The games are competitive, yet always enjoyable. ESM Vets are a friendly bunch and new players are always warmly welcomed. For more information, please get in touch.
