Following promotion as Champions East 2NW in 2016-17, Saints Ladies 1s first season in League 1 in 2017-18 was very positive, resulting in a 7th place, mid-table, finish. The squad has a good balance of experienced, established and promising young players - several of whom have progressed through the club`s strong junior academy.
Looking ahead to the forth-coming season, the squad should be stronger, more experienced and capable of improving on last season – aiming to push for a finish in the top half of the table and possibly even challenging for promotion to East Premier - with the prospect of additional promotion places available due to the national league reorganisation.
New players interested in strengthening the current squad would be most welcome - for more information contact 1st X1 coach (England hockey level 2) Duncan Talbot (07906802557 or email@example.com) or 1st X1 Captain Paula Bingham (07738598252).
Pre-season training began Thursdays in July with fitness / agility and small-sided game based training, before we then start regular pre-season training Thursdays in August (7 - 9pm at Longsands on the 2nd, 9th and 16th and at Kimbolton school 23rd and 30th). Training continues throughout the season on Thursdays evenings from September (7.30-9.30pm) again at Longsands Academy (PE19 1LQ), where we enjoy good facilities. We will also have a good programme of competitive pre-season matches in September.
Indeed St Neots is one of the fastest growing clubs in the East, now fielding 4 ladies (and 5 mens) sides. The ladies section has enjoyed particular success of late with both the 2nd and 3rd teams enjoying their second successive promotions last season. The Club additionally has a very strong junior section with good progression to the senior teams. New players are additionally welcome at all ages and levels to strengthen sides, continue the development of the Club and to enjoy the game!
