Welcome to the SUMHC 2nd XI, I’m Fraser Lewis and I have the privilege of being captain for the following year with Sangmin Lee as my VC. We play in Western 3A in BUCS and in Hampshire Div 2 on Saturdays.

Last season was a tough season for the 2XI, after being faced with the threat of double relegation in both Hampshire and BUCS. After some strong performances in the second half of the season we bounced back to avoid Hampshire relegation. Being relegated from BUCS however has given us the opportunity to assert ourselves and aim for top spot in the league below. For the upcoming season we are aiming to convert more of our strong performances into three points, something that we struggled with last year.

Integration into the team and the club is an important aspect of university hockey life, which we try to do as early as possible. Our legendary Wednesday night socials are the perfect way to meet the great people within the club from other teams and regular team socials to make the most of your time in SUMHC.

Training is 2 hours on Monday evenings and an hour on Fridays at Wide Lane, with games every Saturday and most Wednesdays. Preseason will be held during fresher’s week, if you have any questions feel free to contact either the club or myself if you want to join in. The earlier you get involved in the club, the more you will get out of it.
