Romsey hockey club is beginning preparations for the coming season, buoyed by recent news from America.

With three ladies’ and three men’s teams, and a massive junior section, the club is set for another busy season.

Romsey go into pre-season training feeling very proud and inspired after former player Tom McCarthy was awarded his first cap for the USA national team earlier this month.

A goal in his debut match signifies a great start to his international career, and Romsey Hockey Club were delighted to see Tom take his first steps towards his dream of playing in the next Olympics.

Back in Romsey, director of coaching Dave Miles has been busy preparing sessions and developing coaching resources to ensure a high level of coaching is continued this season.

Pre-season training begins this week, and Romsey HC is inviting new members to join them, whether an experienced player or a complete beginner.

Training starts at 8pm on the Astroturf at Romsey School.

Sessions begin tonight for men’s training, and Thursday for ladies’ training. Junior training begins on Sunday, August 31.
