The 5s have always had a long tradition of the perfect balance between socials and sport. Last season was no different. In 2018/19 we finished above the 4s in our Wednesday BUCS league, beating them in both of our inter-club derbies. Against East of Scotland club sides on a Saturday we came extremely close to clinching promotion. To top it off, in the Scottish Conference Cup, we progressed further than the 3s to reach the semi-finals, narrowly losing to Dundee 1s.
Last year at EUMHC’s end of season party the 5s had a near clean sweep of awards, such as; EUMHC’s sports personality of the year, player of the year (yes a 5s boy won player of the year for the entire club) and our coaches, Pooter and Ben were coaches of the year. It’s fair to say we were robbed of winning team of the year as well. Needless to say our stats should speak for themselves.
Off the pitch the 5s are no different. The 5s will continue to have a regular fixture, to socials on a Wednesday and Potterow on a Saturday, and everything in between. It is this tradition of trying to match our brand of hockey on the pitch, with a trademark social environment off the pitch, that sets us apart from any other team in the club. For this upcoming season we want to once again create an inclusive team environment with a high turnout on and off the pitch. If this seems like the right blend for you, then the 5s would love to have you.
