Welcome to Edinburgh University Men’s Hockey Club,
We are immensely proud to be the largest Men’s University Hockey Club in the UK, one of the largest male senior clubs in Scotland and quite simply the best sports club in the country.
We have 7 teams and thus are able to cater for all abilities. Therefore whether you are yet to pick up a stick or have represented Great Britain in the Olympics, there is a place for you in EUMHC. Most teams will play two fixtures a week: we have 6 teams entered in the Wednesday BUCS (British Universities and College Sport System) whilst we also have 7 teams split across all tiers of the weekend Scottish Hockey League System.
Our 1XI play in Scottish National League 1, the highest league in Scotland and they compete with English Universities in the BUCS system playing in Premier North 1B. Whilst our other teams are spread throughout the league structures with the 2’s & 3’s playing in Scottish leagues whilst the 4’s, 5’s, 6’s and 7’s play more locally in the East of Scotland. Proving that this is a club for everyone! In addition, have also have a successful Indoor Side who playing in Scottish National League 2.
We are in the incredibly lucky position to be able to offer high quality coaching across all our teams. An experienced coaching team including former GB player Graham Moodie, Scotland Under 18’s coach Bill Robson and our Director of Hockey and ex-Scotland Manager, Eugene Connolly.
Aside from the hockey we also have one of the most vibrant social scenes at the university. Our sponsor pub, McSorleys, hosts us after matches for food and drink, providing the perfect environment to get to know your team mates and the rest of the club. We also have regular themed socials which we share with our counterparts the Edinburgh University’s Women’s Hockey Club.
If you would like to find out any more information regarding the club then please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or get in touch on Facebook or Twitter (@euhc_mens). I’m always very happy to speak to you whether you are a potential or returning member, are looking for more information or just a more general hockey chat!
