Our club has many members of all ages, men and women. Let us introduce you to some of our key members:
Former club Captain Kevin Holland became Chairman of the club this year, but has been playing hockey with St Albans for over 25 years, 15 of which as Captain. He’s played throughout the UK at national level in the Nautilus and National Championships and competed throughout Europe playing in Italy, Spain, Portugal and the Czech Republic. Primarily he plays in a central attacking midfield role but can play in any position when required.
He now spearheads the club and is focused on trying to expand the membership to develop a ladies team, supply top level competitive teams to the main competitions and the London League as well as ensuring social hockey tournaments and matches for those more focused on fun than full on competition.
If you have any questions about the club or fancy coming down to play, then please contact Kevin.
Vicki is our vice captain and coach. Vicki represents GB and regularly and competes for the Ladies Masters team around the world. Vicki lives for hockey and plays regularly throughout Europe at many of the open and invitational competitions throughout the year.
Chris has recently taken on the role of club captain. He has been playing octopush for St Albans for over 12 years, after discovering the sport through his father Chris Snr, who has been a dedicated player for 25 years.
Chris quickly developed speed and accuracy with the puck from his regular training sessions, which made him a great contender at team tournaments. Chris plays a forward position, and is quick off the mark, making him a challenging competitor to beat to the puck!
His role as team captain focusses on motivating and organising the team, utilising individual strengths, driving everyone to become a better player, and to communicate efficiently under water.
Chris hopes that the future will bring exciting new techniques and strategies that the team can share, enabling St Albans to move on up the ranks in the coming tournaments and succeed to the top of the league.
