The Club President, Pauline, welcomes all members and fans, past, present and prospective, ahead of our 126th year!
Welcome to the new season 2018-19
I am delighted to welcome you all to the new season, which promises to be just as hectic as the last one!
Congratulations to all our players representing Ireland and Leinster this year, from Under 16, Under 18, Under 21, Senior, Masters and Rockets, and our Ladies World Cup umpire!
Once more the Men 1st XI face European competition in Barcelona as they represent Ireland at the EHL preliminary rounds in early October. They have just launched their fundraising campaign, so all contributions will be welcome! They will also play in the Indoor European Club competition in Oslo, 15-17 February, having won the national title again last year, and promotion to Club Challenge 1 at last year’s European competition.
We are delighted with our newly refurbished pitch and look forward to the official opening ceremony on Novmeber 17th. Many thanks to the contractors, Tony Patterson Sportsgrounds, for delivering the project on time, and to our Club Manager for ensuring we have an outstanding new pitch.
You will hear lots more about our plans as the season kicks off – so enjoy the hockey, AND the opportunity to help bring this club forward to the next level!
My thanks to all the club officers, Council and committees, volunteer coaches, team managements, and all the other volunteers who work tirelessly to make this club great.
Check out the online TRR newsletter – if you are not in receipt of it, let the Club Secretary know and you will be added to the list, there is also the Three Rock Rovers Facebook page, where details of weekly matches are posted, among other things!
