CUHC Committee

Our annually-changing student junior committee is delighted to have the support of the senior committee. The senior committee consists of college fellows, university-affiliated post-docs and alumni of the club.

Committee members for the 2019/2020 committee were confirmed at the Annual General Meeting on 21st May 2019.

Junior Committee

Major Roles


, an MML student at Robinson, is in charge of liaising with sponsors, chairing the Club committee, and generally keeping CUHC running 24/7. Having spent a year in Russia, he’s desperate to return to mother CUHC and get involved.

Club Captains

and organise the annual Varsity matches, send round the weekly match reports, and sundry other vital tasks, such as overseeing CUHCs equivalent to the Black Friday dash – the Physio Sign-up.

Harry is an economist at St. Catherine’s and Kirsty is a geographer at Jesus, so we shouldn’t lose any money or get lost.

Club Secretaries

and organise almost everything to do with hockey in the Club – pitch bookings, fixtures, even the match teas. It’s a good job that these two second years love a bit of admin.

Hantian reads Natural Sciences at Jesus and Faith reads Geography at Downing.

Treasurer’s omitted for their own protection. We’ve had issues in the past of not-so-nice people trying to scam us!

Minor Roles

Kit Secretaries

Mollie Ring, Will Silver and Jack England bear the great responsibility of CUHC’s on-pitch sartorial elegance and/or faux pas.

The fabulous trio liaises with PlayerLayer (our official kit providers), design ‘limited edition’ club stash and tell you which shade of blue is indeed your preferred shade of blue.

Social Secretaries

Seb Shaw, Bill Taylor, Sarah Alsaad and Annabel Follows tailor highly regulated, non-negotiable frameworks for fun that the rest of CUHC follows.

These sometimes consist of team-specific events but are more often whole-club affairs such as the annual Christmas Dinner, which is sure to be a highlight of the CUHC calendar.

Transport Secretaries

and run the CUHC fleet. The ZipCars get us to the league away games mostly hassle-free thanks to these two, while coaches are our preferred mode of transport for BUCS away days.

Umpire Liason Officers

and liaise with East league officials on a weekly basis to prevent forfeiting games due to lack of umpires.

College League Secretaries

The college leagues are an important part of hockey at Cambridge and are organised by Olivia Dadge and Ally Macdonald.

This involves the organisation of pitches and fixtures for several leagues and 3 cuppers competition (Men’s, Women’s & Mixed), which most of the 31 colleges compete in.

Welfare Officers

Izzy Austin and Jim Dickinson are always available to talk about anything hockey, workload or general wellbeing related. They can lend a listening ear and signpost to the many Welfare services available in Cambridge.

You can get in touch with them via Facebook or email.

P.s. They’re genuinely both really nice.

Goalkeeper Attachée

Our goalies are real keepers, so we want to keep them happy. Hence in 2019/20, Mog will be serving as our inaugural “Goalkeeper attachée”, advising the committee on matters that greatly affect our heroes between the sticks as well as organising specific training sessions and more goalie fun!

We firmly believe she’s a safe pair of hands and will do a great job in her new role.

Alumni Secretary

As an elder statesman of CUHC, David has seen many players come and go. He has a close relationship with many of our alumni and keeps them up to date with the latest news via the Vann Club. He also organises our Alumni Weekend, where the alumni come and show the current teams how to play hockey.

Master of the Internet

has inherited the burgeoning CUHC media empire, including this website, the social media accounts (Twitter, Facebook and CUHC-TV). He keeps our growing fan base updated, manages media scandals, attempts to provide “general amusement” and types these words.

If you notice any issues with the internet, please let me know.
