“Game on”- Hockey is back:
Can you believe it, the good news has finally arrived, hockey is back on for the 2020/21 season. I’m sure so many of you are itching to get back out on the pitch and dust off the old cobwebs. or just see a few more familiar faces then your family and house mates.
With us getting started again there are a few more “rules” being added to the game and these ones are more about hygiene. We will be following England Hockey ‘Return to Play’ Guidance which can be found here and all players need to register here at least 24 hours before participating in training or matches. So have a read and be sure to see what needs to happen pitch side on game day.

Memories from the past
Thank you to Bernard from NSW in Australia who found this piece of Merton Hockey Club history when going through old photos. The gentleman with the tie in the middle of the back row is his grandfather, Bertram Bullen, who lived and played hockey in the Merseyside area prior to emigrating to Australia around 1915. Bernard’s aunt recalled that he was umpiring on this particular day when Merton were touring Wallasey which is near Liverpool. When he moved to Australia he continued to umpire there.
How amazing that modern technology has allowed Bernard to share this wonderful picture from the past with us.
Social distancing does not stop awards
Unruffled by the current Coronavirus pandemic, Merton Ladies managed to have an awards ceremony complete with warm up and kit on :).
