Would you like free hockey membership this season?

Published: 23/07/2018

Hockey Membership is free to our Fixtures Secretary and we are currently looking for a volunteer to fill this role.

After a record breaking 15 years of volunteering at the club, Twinny is stepping down from the role of fixtures secretary.

As you know, the fixtures sec one of the most important roles in the club, and is a crucial part of making sure our hockey-filled weekends run without a glitch!

It's the perfect role for someone who loves hockey, is analytically-minded and enjoys the thrills of a colour co-ordinated spreadsheet. It's also a great way to get involved in the running of the club and a brilliant CV booster (73% of employers will employ a candidate with volunteer experience over one without).

In return for carrying out the role, the new fixtures secretary will receive next season's hockey membership for free!

In addition, full training and a comprehensive handover will be provided and the committee will be on-hand to provide support whenever needed. It is worth noting that Twinny has been perfecting the process for over a decade and leaves the role in excellent shape.
