Team of the Year – The Merlins
Well, when the votes were counted up the Maidenhead Merlins yet again came out as Team of the Year. We all know of their legendary hospitality so it’s well deserved.
They beat off The Wrinklies and The Owls to win by a couple of lengths. Many thanks to all of you who voted, and everyone said they could have voted for most teams such was the standard this year.
Participation Next Season
It is important for planning that teams let us know as soon as possible their intention to participate next season.
We already have 10 teams confirmed with one to go. We always like new sides to play and enjoy TVC hockey so a number of ‘flyers’ will be distributed to clubs to see if they would like to join. If you would like to suggest a club please e-mail Steve or Geoff.
The End of Season Meeting for Captains & Players
The Roebuck pub, St Marks Road, Binfield, Bracknell, RG42 4AJ.
A good turn out at The Roebuck ensured some interesting discussion.
The agenda was followed as below :
- Team of the year votes
- Emergency Contact Report
- Potential New Teams –?
- Teams confirmed to play next year.
- Start date for next season…… the AOB.
Take – a – Break !
A proposal was put forward that we take a one week break in the fixtures to take into account the difficultly sides have with numbers at half term. It was agreed to trial a break in February 2014 and see if this helps. Sides who wish to play can contact Geoff who may be able to suggest fixtures for the ‘free’ Saturday.
Summer 7 a Side.
Camberley are running a Summer 7-a-side ‘Conference’. Each evening they want four sides to play 7 a side on half pitches with three 20 minute games. This is followed by showers and beer at the clubhouse. This would be on Wednesday evenings maybe every 2 or 3 weeks. Only players of TVC standard are allowed to ensure the evening follows the TVC ethos.
More details will follow but it will start in mid May.

TVC Welcome Pack
The TVC Welcome Pack will be sent to all teams in the hope they can be used to pass to other sides and encourage interest and participation.

Many thanks to all for a successful season. Keep in touch.
