We have decided to cancel hockey training at Balcarras tonight due to snow covered pitch and no change in the freezing weather conditions.
PLEASE NOTE THAT THERE IS NO TRAINING NEXT WEEK AS IT IS HALF TERM. TRAINNG WILL RESUME ON FRIDAY 24TH FEB.
The game started at a quick pace proving that both teams had some good talent. There were several early-on chances. However, we were playing nice wide hockey giving us the edge over Gloucester. Consequently, Sam Woods slotted a goal in, in the bottom corner after a good shot was saved from Alex Diesel. Unfortunately we didn’t have goal keeper, so we had Chris Bolton as a stand-in kicking player; who played very well and as a coach got to see us play from a different perspective.

Cheltenham met Sherbourne on a cloudy Saturday at Bourton Leisure Centre. Cheltenham got off to a shaky start with Sherbourne having the majority of the possession. However, Benji Grew dribbled through their defence to score the first goal of the match. Sherbourne were quick to respond, and put our defence under strong pressure. A very good ball to their centre forward equalised the scores, and goalkeeper Saumil Hiremath made several great saves. Cheltenham picked up their play, and started to attack. After several minutes of hard work, we were rewarded with a brilliant goal from Ollie Cox.
Cheltenham Badgers 2 – Stroud Badgers 0
On Saturday, the 6th of March, a young badger’s team met an equally young Stroud side with apparently a 10 year old playing for them in the forwards, but with an adult playing in defence.
The boys played brilliantly today - excellent team work!
We won 3 games and drew 2 - 10 goals scored by us, with only 3 against!
Squad - Danielle (GK), Ellie, Katie, Fenella, Georgia, Rose, Holly, Helenne, Mahala
The U10 girls have had mixed fortunes in their two post-Christmas tournaments. After the cancellation of the December fixture it was good to be able to play in January, despite the weather, which started off fine and gradually got wetter.
Two teams were entered and, although it had been hoped they were evenly matched, they fared vary differently. Cheltenham A drew 0-0 with Dursley and East Glos 2 but lost 2-0 to Worcester, Yate and East Glos 1.
