2018 / 2019 Accounts
Following last nights successful AGM & Open meeting, two club reps have come forward offering to fill the two vacant "Clubs' Representative" positions on the Executive Committee. All we need now are volunteers for Chairman, Secretary & Treasurer. The latter position has been vacant for 21 months; leaving the Secretary to hold the financial reins. Both the Chairman and Secretary have indicated that 2019/20 will be their last year, so volunteers are urgently required to work with the present holders, rather than wait until next year's AGM - The DSC needs new young blood.

More history for Prescot Hockey Club
Lancashire Cup Winners' Cup Final
Formby Ladies 0 Prescot Ladies 2
Prescot Ladies continued to create history as they represented Greater Manchester against the South Lancashire cup winners in a winner-takes-all Final held at Crosby. Prescot were forced into giving a debut to a junior goalkeeper with Foy unable to play. However, after just five minutes an injury meant Heaps had to remove the young keeper and play with eleven outfield players! Undeterred by this setback Prescot rallied and took the game to their so called more illustrious opponents and dominated for over an hour. Goals from Sophie Fairhurst and Rachel Wood saw a dominant Prescot ladies team pick up their FOURTH trophy of the season and complete a historic quadruple by winning every domestic honour available this season.
A massive thank you to St Helens Sports Development for their support with junior hockey, St Helens Law and Coach Mark Heaps who has overseen the development of the ladies hockey section at Prescot.
Next year both the men and ladies will be promoted to the Pennine League and will be looking to build on this historic success. New players of any abilities and ages welcome.
