The 6th XI is for players of all abilities. We play in East District 2 every Saturday and train on Thursday evenings. We take our hockey seriously and having finished near the top in East District 2 for last couple years, we are hoping to do better this season and win the league. This will be the first year the 6’s take on BUCS on a Wednesday, sharing the league with the 5’s there will be a continuous fiery relationship but we are sure we’ll come out on top. We are a mix of fresher’s to fourth years and will always be seen after matches at McSorley’s and Potterow and never fail to have the best turnout at Wednesday socials.

The sixes continue to be a strong force in their competitive league finishing a comfortable 4th last season, only narrowly missing out on promotion, which we will be striving for this year. It was a mixed start to last season with a few losses taken early, but brought back with a huge win over Waverley Inveresk Trinity Men’s 1s 11-1. This was the win we needed to really take stride in our competition, giving confidence to all the players in the squad we then went on to win 9 out of the next 12 games, cementing our place in the top quarter of the league.

Nevertheless, the sixes have always and always will be known for their social prowess. Every week the sixes churn out top numbers to socials and Saturday nights and there will be no changing that this year. With a group of great guys who are always up for a good time on and off the pitch, we’d love to see you guys join.
