History of Section Northumbria Hockey Section was started in February 1997 at the Byker Police Club by the then young Alan Appleton, Andy McDaid, Sue Hewitson, Janice Hutton and Chris Jackson.
There is no selection process and we players of all ages, skills and experience. During the last eleven years, we have managed to win 2 national competitions and have received over 20 awards for teams and individuals in various national tournaments. We also frequently provide officials for umpiring at tournaments and matches.
The team has played all over the UK and abroad, at venues including Barcelona, Belfast, Edinburgh and Hull. We have strong links to the GB Peelers (Vets) team, who host many events which are open to our members. Funds allocated to the hockey section by the NPSSC are put towards tournament entrance fees, new kit purchases, affiliation and pitch fees and to assist members who enter GB trials with travel and accommodation expenses.
The section owns a full goal-keeping kit, which is available on loan to anyone who wishes to use it.
