New Men’s Cup Competitions

Following changes to the format of the Men’s Cup competitions, please see below…

The Men’s 1st XI face Swansea City (home) in the first round of the new Championship Cup draw. This tie will take place on Sunday 3rd November, so please ensure your availability for what will be a great cup tie. A Men’s 1st XI squad of 14 will be named with all members being informed of their selection after this weekend’s trials.

The new Challenge Cup will be contested by a team made up of primarily 2nd and 3rd XI players. A squad of 28 players will be named for this competition, which takes place at Swansea University on Saturday 14th September. The draw sees us face Abergavenny first up (at 9:50am), before facing our friends at Whitchurch (at 11:20am) in Group A. As with the Men’s 1st XI squad, all members selected for the Challenge Cup squad will be informed after this weekend’s squad trials.

As always, Bridgend Hockey strives for success in all competitions, and to that end, please ensure the following:

i) You do your very best to attend this weekend’s trials (Click here for details)
ii) You do your best to make yourselves available for these important cup competitions
iii) IF (and that’s a big if!!!) you can’t play on the above dates (14th September and 3rd November), PLEASE let your relevant captains or selection committee members know ASAP, preferably in plenty of time BEFORE the trials commence on saturday.

See you all saturday…
