Weekend Preview 21st/22nd October

It’s another relatively quiet hockey weekend coming up with no district league games scheduled. Our Ladies’ 1sts though are a busy squad.  On Saturday, they play Aberdeen University in a game with a local flavour.  The students are adjusting to life back in National League and will be highly motivated for this Aberdeen derby.  On Sunday, GCW have the toughest of first round Scottish Plate ties away to Clydesdale Western.  The Glasgow outfit are amongst the top teams in National 1 every year, but this season lost in the first round of the Scottish Cup on penalties.  Nicole Duffin is missing a long list of players, but those stepping up will be hungry for the opportunity to test themselves against high class opposition.


An Advert for Hockey

On a weekend with no district league matches scheduled, our Ladies' 1sts were the main show in town.  The opposition were Erskine Stewarts Melville, recently down from Division 1, top of the table, and slender victors over GCW in the cup tie between these teams two weeks previous which was decided on penalties.


Stepp Back for Men's 1s

Our Men’s 1sts made the trip to Glasgow on Saturday to play Stepps. The home team possibly started the stronger, but GCW had a couple of early penalty corner opportunities.  Neither of these were taken, and Stepps went 1-0 up from open play after 11 minutes.  GCW responded, and started to find some gaps in the opposition defence.  After 20 minutes, a move which started at left back finished with a one-two into the circle and Harry Leggett’s fierce reverse stick strike high into the net made it 1-1.  Both teams had further opportunities, but the score was unchanged until the break.


Weekend Preview 14th/15th October

With the tattie holidays in full swing, local fixtures are few and far between. We could really do with a spell of fair weather to make the tattie lifting just a bit easier though.

There is no respite for our Ladies’ 1sts who welcome Erskine Stewarts Melville to ASV tomorrow.  The Edinburgh outfit stepped down from National League 1 at the end of last season and are in pole position to jump straight back up.  A confidence building win last weekend has given GCW some reason for optimism, and Nicole Duffin’s squad will be aiming to cause an upset.
