Ladies 3rd XI

Our 3rd team play in the First Division of the Lancashire Central Womens Hockey League.

A mix of young and developing players along with some more experienced players who wish to continue to play competitively, a couple alongside their daughters! There is also a clear pathway to the 2nd team with some making the step up most seasons.

Recent history:
Rejoining the League in 2014/15 after a four year break and joining Division 3, the team finished bottom with 2 points! The season after was a different story; a promotion to Division 2 after finishing Runners up and a Semi Final of the Lishman Plate. And it's been a continuous rise since then. In 2016/17, the team made further progress, cementing 3rd place in Division 2 leading to a consecutive promotion and they won the Lishman Plate. The same year the 1st team also sealed a League and Cup Double - the Double Double year! In 2017/18 they finished a respectable mid table in Division 1 and last season, just missed out on promotion to the Premier Division.

Managed and coached by Brendan Cookson (who originally joined the club as a parent!), the 3rd team train alongside the 4th team on Thursday nights, 6-7pm at Garstang Community Academy. Additional training (7-8pm) is also available by invitation to those pushing for the 2nd team. Get in touch with the Head Coach if you fancy joining our friendly club.
