The ladies team from Wotton-under-Edge Hockey Club unveiled their new playing strip recently, thanks to help from a generous sponsor.

2006/07 represents an enormous step forward for the club with the ladies XI entering the league structure for the first time. Progress of the ladies team from its original formation to this point has been remarkable and is largely down to the enthusiasm and commitment of the players themselves.

The ladies line up in Severn Division 3 of the West Women's Hockey League, playing regularly on Saturdays. The team now have a regular training slot at 7.30-9.00 on Tuesday nights at Castle School, Thornbury and are always keen to hear from new players.
