to be a challenging but exciting year.

The men’s 1st team have had a tremendous season boasting their best finish ever for the second consecutive season boasting 50 points from 22 games. In the same time scoring 98 goals making us the highest scoring teams in the league.

Their 18/19 season as told by Captain Jamie:
"We finished 6th in the league. The highest we have been in two years. Our highlight was beating top of the league and seeing our results and tweets on how good we were showed some of our many achievements. It has been great to see the team playing good hockey and to have the players enjoying the hockey they have played. We have had our ups and down in the season but all in all we finished really strong and hopefully we can do the same next season but even better!”

Men's 3rd X1

Our M3, appropriately called 'The Thunder', are a team in Div 6SW dominated by experienced players, welcoming new members young and old to the club. Captain Simon plays a pivotal role in integrating new players into the Men's section.

Their 18/19 season as told by Captain Simon:
“Golborne Thunder started their league season in Div 8SW following a fantastic end to the previous season. The Thunder are always about enjoyment more than results & it was hoped that the new season would continue to deliver on both counts. With a large squad to chose from on most weekends, the Thunder have cemented a top five finish.The season has provided a number of highlights, including a comfortable home win against the league champions elect, following on from a narrow defeat in the reverse fixture earlier in the season. Two close fixtures against second placed Northop Hall and the team continuing to score goals, following a number of seasons of struggling, has also been a plus.
The Thunder always gives opportunities to players, both young and old, to start in hockey or to return to hockey. This season has seen the emergence of youngster Tom and it was good to see him gain in confidence as the season progressed following a timid debut.
The Thunder have a positive goal difference, having scored in every league fixture bar one, which is always a reasonable barometer on the season progression.
It is hoped that the League re-organisation due for the start of the 2019/20 season doesn't undermine the good work put in by all the Thunder squad this season, and that we remain in a division which allows us to progress whilst integrating players of all abilities into the Club.”
