Helping sporting clubs and individuals to help themselves!
There are still a number of teams that have not renewed for 2017/2018: 31st January is the deadline for this to be rectified thus ensuring that your club can qualify for "Year 2" status in 2018/2019 (providing membership for that year is renewed before 31st May).. If you allow this year's membership to lapse, your club will be held on "Year 1" status. To renew membership, follow the link.

Prescot Hockey - Our Ladies 3s entered the Greater Manchester League at the start of 2017/18 season with the intention of getting the mainly youth players some valuable game time against senior teams and players. The ladies threes are mainly age 14-17 and attend a variety of local schools in St Helens and Merseyside.
The youthful Prescot side took the league by storm and only lost one game throughout the whole season and clinched promotion as champions at the weekend against Glossop. The Ladies 3s will now play in Greater Manchester Division three next season.
On Thursday May 24th Prescot Hockey Club will be hosting a mixed and girls hockey event at Sutton with all St Helens schools taking part. The Club also runs junior hockey training on Wednesday evenings at 7pm (also at Sutton) for anyone interested in playing hockey.
