ARMY LADIES INDOOR REPORT 2013/2014

Having won the Ladies West Indoor Hockey Qualifier at Exeter University on 14 Dec 13, come 2nd in the National League Division Two North Indoor Tournament at Worcester over the weekend 04 – 05 Jan 14, the Ladies Army Hockey team progressed to the National League Division Two Tournament being held at Nottingham Trent University over the weekend 18 – 19 Jan 14. 

This was the final tournament of the Indoor season for the Army Ladies which saw them competing against 5 National League Outdoor Teams; Horsham, Ipswich and Old Loughtonians who had qualified from the National League Division Two South Tournament and Oxford Hawks and Stourport who had also qualified from the North Tournament with the Army Ladies.

The quality of hockey was very high and with each team having played 2 matches on Saturday the tournament could not have been closer with every team having won and lost a match and only separated by goal difference.  This ranged from Horsham on +2 through to Old Loughtonians on -2, with the Army Ladies sat in 3rd place with a 0 goal difference.

With 3 matches on the final day, the Army knew that a win was essential in the 1st match to stay in contention and they duly produced the required result with an excellent 5-3 win against Stourport, a strong side with a proud history.  Unfortunately they were unable to score from the chances created against Old Loughtonians and Ipswich in the final 2 matches which resulted losses and a final position of 4th in the tournament. 

Although disappointed with the final position, the girls were reminded that they were playing against National League outdoor clubs who train together every week and that they were the only team to beat the overall winners of the tournament; Horsham.  In terms of the Ladies Indoor Team ranking for 2013/2014, the Army are 22nd in England; a huge achievement for which they should be congratulated. 

As well as this Tournament, the Army Ladies have also successfully won the Inter Services Indoors this season, taking their run of wins to 15 years in a row. This is a clear example of their commitment, discipline and pride in their team as they strive every year to hold on to their title and improve.

At the last Inter Services Indoor Tournament in Aldershot, the Army won all the categories; Men’s, Ladies, U23s and Masters, a clean sweep. The overall success of the Army at Indoor Hockey is a clear display of the dedication, hard work and quality of the players. This Army sport is continually improving at all levels and this seasons result at indoor is a significant mile stone in Services indoor hockey, the first service ever to win all 4 categories in one year.

With this quality of indoor hockey it is expected that the Ladies as well as the other Army teams will continue to exceed their standards and go on to improve for the 14/15 season.
