Welcome to Edinburgh University Men’s Hockey Club,
With 7 teams we are proud to be the largest Men’s University Hockey Club in the UK, one of the largest male senior clubs in Scotland, and simply the successful University club in the country. This large size means we are able to cater to all abilities, whether you are new to the sport or are have represented GB in Rio 2016; there is a place for you in EUMHC. Our 7 outdoor teams are split across all tiers of the Scottish Hockey league system, competitively playing weekend games against senior Scottish teams. Our 1XI play in National 1 which is the highest league in Scotland, the 2XI and 3XI in the Central leagues and the 4XI, 5XI, 6XI and 7XI in East district leagues. Further our top 5 teams represent the university in BUCS leagues on Wednesdays, with the 1s competing with English Universities in the Premier North league, and the 2s-5s occupying the Scottish cups and leagues. In addition to our outdoor teams we also boast an Indoor XI which recently gained promotion and now play in the National 2 league.
We are in the lucky position to be able to offer high quality coaching across all teams. An experienced coaching team includes 2 former GB players, Graham Moodie and Dan Coultas, plus our Director of Hockey and ex-Scottish Manager, Eugene Connolly.
Aside from the hockey we also have one of the most vibrant social scenes at the university. Our sponsor pub, Stramash, hosts us after matches for some free food and the odd beverage, providing the perfect opportunity 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 in the University’s Women’s Hockey Club.
If you would like to find out any more information regarding the club please don’t hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or get us on Facebook or twitter (@euhc_mens)
I look forward to meeting you, and hope you enjoy your time at EUMHC.
