Newmarket I’s 3 – 3 Norwich City III’s 26/10/2019 Goalscorers: Donald, Holden and Wilson Newmarket dominated the opening exchanges of the match looking for a sixth consecutive league victory. They started strongly and dominated the early exchanges but saw numerous chances go begging before Simon Donald deflected home at a penalty corner. Norwich City were a young team with a few experienced heads, Newmarket thought they’d scored a second when Michael Skelton deflected home another corner only to be disappointed that the umpire disallowed the goal and asked the corner to be retaken. This seems to give Norwich City a […]

North Norfolk 1st XI    2 – 3   Newmarket 1st XI 19/10/2019 Goalscorers: Skelton x 2, Harrington The two teams with 100% records in division 3NE faced off at Cromer High School. Newmarket were without Centre-back Jordan Newnes and defensive destroyer Louis Hrebeniak as they looked for a fourth successive clean sheet, which would have been the first since the 1980’s. With Oliver Wade dropping into central defence and Chris Leggett returning the team expected to get a result. The game started at a frantic pace but soon settled into a rhythm which played out for the rest of the match. […]

Newmarket Men’s 1’s 6 – 0 IES II’s 12/10/2019 Goalscorers: Donald x 2, Wilson x 2, Dawson & Dykes With talismanic veteran striker Michael Skelton unavailable and Chris Leggett heading to Chesterfield (or is it Canterbury) the firsts called up Veteran striker Matthew Holden. Welcoming IES 2’s that were relegated into this league last summer Newmarket weren’t sure what to expect, push back was delayed as IES were stuck in traffic and when the game started 20 minutes late it looked like IES were still on the A14. IES sportingly passed to Newmarket from the push back, the ball was […]

Norwich Dragons II’s 0 – 5 Newmarket !’s 05/10/2019 Goalscorers: Dawson x 2, Skelton x 2, Wade Newmarket headed up the A11 for their second away league game of the season in Norwich. Newmarket finished one place above this Dragons side last season but did complete an emphatic 8-0 victory in March. With hindsight Newmarket could easily, and perhaps should, have scored as many this time round. The first half was quite even, both teams enjoyed periods of possession before Newmarket broke the deadlock. William Wilson intercepted a ball into their right winger and played it down the line to […]

Newmarket Mens’ 1’s 3 – 0 UEA 2’s Josh Dawson scored two on his return, after 24 months on the sidelines, as Newmarket beat the University of East Anglia 3-0 at home. Newmarket made a dream start inside five minutes as a high press from Michael Skelton presented Josh Dawson with the chance to open his account for the season after some quick one-two passing put him through on goal to slot into the bottom left corner. 1-0 UEA tried to mount an immediate revival but two saves in quick succession from keeper James Atkinson kept the away team at […]

Norwich City IV’s 3 – 4 Newmarket Men’s 1st Team Fixture: 21 September 2019, Goal Scorers: Michael Skelton x 2, William Wilson x 2. Newmarket started the season travelling up the A11 to Norwich, a trip they’ll make many times this season with half the 12 team league based in Norwich. It was a glorious Indian Summers day as Newmarket’s youthful bare 11 watched Norwich City’s 15 man squad go through a rigorous warmup. What played out was a competitive game of hockey for the first game of the season. Newmarket retained the majority of possession but Norwich were always […]

Restructuring of the Ladies Section

Posted Posted in Club News

Dear Club Member, Late on Monday night, I had the unfortunate responsibility of emailing the East League to request permission to withdraw the Ladies 1’s from the league. This was a decision reached by the Committee after considerable thought, countless calls, meetings and discussions with key stakeholders in the decision. Our request has been approved. In the 17/18 season our Ladies 1’s were in Division 1. Despite investing in a Commonwealth medalist coach they were relegated and we consequently lost several players. In 18/19 they were again relegated and now, facing a season in Division 3NW we have lost a […]
