This year the 5s are in a mouth-watering position, with not one, but two derby day fixtures against the 4’s, in East District 1 on Saturday, and the 6’s, in BUCS Scottish 4A on Wednesday. We are in this unique position, having clinched the East District 2 title last season, and more importantly one of the only male hockey teams to win some coveted silverware. We will make sure that the 6s are regretting their decision to join us in the big boy league by initiating them in true 5s style.
We missed out on double promotion last year, coming 2nd in Scottish 4A, but with the right additions we feel we can build on last season’s achievements by wining 4A and staying in East District 1.
We are a good mix from all years, with always a strong 5s turnout for McSorleys and Potterow, the staple of any Saturday night. And everyone in EUHC is always talking about the 5s post Wednesday socials, whether it be Cam Smith’s romantic antics, or Gavin Minty’s outrageous costume choices.
The 5s continue to be the right balance of time on the pitch and fun off it. We take our hockey relatively seriously, hence the achievements of last year, but are just as serious about our pints afterwards as well.
If this seems like the right blend for you, then the 5s would love to have you.
Joseph Demetrios, EUMHC 5th XI Captain 2017/18
