Blues Captain’s Welcome 2019/20
Hello and Welcome to CUWHC!
I’m Amy Edwards and I will be the Women’s Blue’s Captain for the forthcoming 2019-20 season.
CUHC is the largest mixed sports club in the University, fielding 3 men’s and women’s teams. The Women’s Blues (1st XI), the Nomads (2nd XI) and the Bedouins (3rd XI) all train twice a week and play league matches on Saturdays.
The Blues, having been promoted, will be playing in East Leagues Prem A league, the Nomads in the 1N division and the Bedouin in the 2NW division. The Blues and Nomads also play BUCS matches on Wednesdays in the Premier South (Blues) and Midlands 2B (Nomads) divisions.
All 3 teams play in an annual varsity match against Oxf*rd, widely known through the hockey club as the best day of the year (BDotY). It is no doubt the highlight of the season for everyone involved.
Hockey at Cambridge is a great experience – both sporting and social. We play a high standard of hockey, and although it is a considerable time commitment to train, travel and play. It is extremely rewarding and is entirely feasible to play University sport, achieve academically and enjoy a social life.
I’m in my third year studying Engineering at Caius, having played in the Blues for the past two years. Previously, I have played for Ulster at U15-U21 and Ireland at U16 level, competed in the UK School Games, and played premier league for Lurgan Ladies Hockey Club.
If you are coming to Cambridge as a fresher, already part of the university or a postgraduate and are interested at playing hockey next year, we would love to hear from you, through filling out the form below.
Especially if you have played regular hockey before, I would encourage coming along to pre-season, which this year will start on Wednesday the 11th September, in time for the first league match on the 21st September.
Fielding 3 competitive teams is always difficult this early on, but it would be brilliant to see all teams off to a flying start for the season, especially with promotion on our mind. So, I encourage you to come even if you cannot make all of preseason. It is also a great time to meet new people and settle into Cambridge before term kicks off in October.
If you have any queries then don’t hesitate to , and look forward to seeing you in the Autumn!
