Moss On Tour 2013

General News

This Easter Moss Park past, present and future descended on Blackpool for the 62nd Blackpool Easter Hockey Festival.

 

With the weather unseasonably cold M.U.T.S went well prepared with even our mascot, Troy the boxer puppy,  traveling with his own blanket. However laughter, poo stories and maybe a bit of alcohol kept us warm throughout the long weekend and despite the snow and sea breeze an excellent time was had by all.

 

Highlights included fancy dress night, when the team turned out as a ‘Hive’ of Amy’s and subsequently got refused from three Blackpool restaurants, Kerry’s very own ‘Dirty Dancing’ moment and our valiant (but failed) attempt on the final night to get the next day’s opposition incapacitated.

 

Most surprising of all was our unbeaten run over the first three days, resulting in a Easter Monday semi final against the Topsy Turvies.  Unfortunately by this point a number of the team were suffering from sleep deprivation (and possibly hangovers, although this remains unconfirmed) and M.U.T.S narrowly missed out on a final place, losing 2-1 in what was a entertaining game.

 

Thanks to the organisers at Blackpool Hockey Club for an excellent and well run festival, our long suffering hosts at our B&B and most of all our ‘fun bus’ driver, Ellen Stephenson who ferried us about during the weekend.

Winter News Round Up

General News

It's been an odd start to the year for the Moss with snow and ice forcing the cancellation of both training and games over a number of weeks. However, with our normal determination the Moss has continued to fight back with the Second Team recently securing a draw against Rochdale and the First Team only narrowly missing out on a point thanks to a last minute goal from Alderley Edge. Both teams have a number of games left and still have everything to play for before the season draws to a close.


However, despite the cancellations the end of the season is in sight and it is time to start thinking about the summer, which will bring with it tours and summer hockey.
Moss Park will be attending two tours this year.The first will be the Blackpool Festival between the 29th March - 1st April. It is an 11-a-side tournament with each team playing about 9 games over the weekend. We are one of 9 womens teams entered and there are plenty of mens and mixed teams going too. We will be staying in B+B accommodation from Friday to Monday.
The second has a slightly more continental feel and will be organised jointly with a team from London headed by former Moss Parker Amanda Irwin. It is the annual Paris tour which many of our club have attended previously. Although you won't see much of the city Paris is an excellent chance to enjoy some European sunshine in good company from a number of different countries. The tour this year takes place between the 10th-12th May, accommodation is provided in student digs and most food is provided by the organisers. The major cost of the tour is the flights over.
Please get in touch with Cath Holland if you are interested in either tour. A deposit for Blackpool will be required by the 1st March in order to cover registration fees.


A "Save the Date" has already been sent out for the End of Season Do which will once again be held at the Willow Bank Hotel on the 20th April. Tickets cost £25 and include a 3 course dinner. Please get in touch with Lucy or Jos for tickets.
