What's On

Membership Renewal Update


28 Clubs have renewed their membership this year and we should like to know what would entice others back.




In order for the DSC to progress, we desperately need volunteers to come forward for the positions of Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer.  As you should know we haven't had a Treasurer since August 2017, when John Cox retired and financial affairs have been undertaken by the Secretary, Fred Crawford.




An early reminder that the AGM & Open Meeting will be on Wednesday, 15th May in the Sticky Wicket Bar at Ruskin Drive.  The committee is concerned about the lack of membership renewals this year and would encourage all members past & present to seriously consider being represented at these meetings.  We appreciate that clubs have their own committee meetings but representatives do not have to be the regular attendees: they just need to be given a short report to let us know how the club is progressing . Attendance at these meetings are also an opportunity for clubs to renew their membership which remains at £10.

Thatto Heath Crusaders: After surviving a late fight-back from League 1 side, N Wales Crusaders, Crusaders went through to round 5 of the Challenge Cup with a 16-14.  They will now meet Mid-table Championship team, Dewsbury Rams, in a televised fifth round tie at home.on Saturday.


Liverpool St Helens: With only 13 men at one point, they reached the MJ Worsley Cup Final after a fiery battle with Aldwinians to win 40-29.  They will meet League Champions, Widnes, in the final.


Prescot Hockey Club: The ladies reached the Manchester Cup Final after beating City of Manchester 5-1


West Park: finished the season with a flourish, gaining maximum league points in a 43-10 win at Heaton Moor.  Unfortunately, too late to challenge for what would have been deserved League honours.
