Sutton Coldfield Men’s Hockey Club was formed in 1891 and is one of the oldest clubs in the Midlands. The club has shared its home with Sutton Coldfield Cricket club since 1891 and continues to use the Rectory Park clubhouse. Having just gained promotion, the men’s 1st XI will be playing in the Midlands Premier Division next season.
The Ladies’ Club was reformed after the Second World War in 1949 and has achieved amazing levels of success in recent years. The 1st XI plays in the National League Premier Division and are past winners of the league. Sutton Ladies’ have produced some top international players including successful Olympians Jane Sixsmith, Barbara Hambley and Mandy Davies. Jane Sixsmith is President of the Ladies’ Club.
Sutton Juniors began life in 1989 following the increased interest in hockey after the Men’s GB team won the Gold Medal at the Seoul Olympics. The Club have always excelled at providing an excellent level of coaching for all youngsters, and this has led to a significant number of players achieving international, county and Midlands regional representation. Indeed, the under-15 girls won the National Club Championship in 2004.
The Club play the majority of home games on the all weather pitches at Wyndley Leisure Centre and Bishop Vesey’s Grammar School, both in Sutton Coldfield. Then all teas and socialising take place back at the Clubhouse in Rectory Park. Each year, the Club holds a Gala Ball which is attended by over 200 members from all hockey sections and acts as a great opportunity to review the season and present the individual Player of the Season and Top Goalscorer awards for each team within the Club.
All in all, Sutton Coldfield Hockey Club continues to go from strength to strength and we welcome all new members to our fantastic Club.
