Leinster McCann Cup Winners!
The Boyne Hockey U14 Girls Indoor Team has won the Leinster Championship (McCann Cup) hosted by Portrane at Donabate in spectacular style. This is a first for BHC in the Leinster arena and a momentous win for the club.
The team went unbeaten all tournament and after a 2:2 draw in the final against cup holders Monkstown HC (and at least 6 x short corners awarded against them), the winner was decided in a stokes playoff. Super star goal keeper Jessica did the unspeakable and saved all 5 Strokes. It was a spectacular finish and the team were very deserving winners.
Massive congratulations to all involved, especially Niall & Sonya, and the great support shown by parents at the two days. All that Friday night training was worth it!
Onwards and upwards for BHC.
Skerries Inter Club Tournament
On Saturday 4th January Boyne HC entered a 2nd year team (mix of Team East and Team North) to play in a fun inter hockey club tournament arranged by Skerries HC at Skerries. There were 6 teams in total: (Group 1) Skerries, Portrane, & Suttonians; (Group 2) Glennane, Boyne & Cavan.
The Boyne team won in group 2 and went on to play Portrane in the Cup Final (winners of Group 1). Unfortunately they were pipped in the final which went to a penalty shoot out following a nil all draw final match.
The girls had a great day, enjoyed the experience and look forward to other similar events in the future.

PSi Intercity Tournament in Southampton
Last weekend saw 7 Boyne hockey players travel to Southampton in the UK for the inaugural PSi Intercity Event. They were part of the U13 and U15 Dublin North Knights teams, the only Irish team who travelled to the event.
After two long and exciting days competing against teams from across the UK, the U13 Knights finished in first position (gold!!!) and the U15 team narrowly missed the bronze in their event.
To top it off Alicia Duffy on the U13 was voted Player of the Tournament (voted by the coaches and getting all the votes). Wow! Congratulations Alicia. AND Cara Donnelly won top goal scorer in that category too. Great stuff girls.
The girls had a fabulous time and are already looking forward to the next PSi event.
Thank you Gareth (PSi Ireland) for the wonderful photos and memories. What an amazing experience for all the girls.

Registration extended to next Sunday 13th October
This year’s hockey season is now in full swing with one month of training and the first round of league matches behind us. We are completing the final phase of registrations for the remaining members who wish to register for hockey this year. The majority of members have completed registration but some have faced a few technical challenges with the new Hockey Ireland system.
As a result, we are extending the registration process until next Sunday 13th October before offering any open places in a number of the groups to those new members wishing to join.
We will be at the hockey pitch next Saturday 12th October to work through the list of registered members to identify those not returning, to register new members and assist those still outstanding with the process.
