Womens Section

St Fagans was formed in 1981 by the wives and girlfriends of Whitchurch Mens HC. There already was a Whitchurch LHC therefore another name had to be found and as we were, playing at St Fagans Cricket Club at the time, we became St Fagans LHC. During the 2001/02 season it was decided that as we were based at Whitchurch we would change our name – again we couldn’t use the name Whitchurch LHC so the members decided to keep the Saints part of our former name and add Whitchurch to it – thus getting Whitchurch Saints. We also decided that along with our new name we would change our kit colour from maroon to a more sliming Navy! 

Over the years the club has gone from strength to strength and as new members have joined and with the development of the youth section, we have had to increase the number of teams we have entered into the South Wales Hockey League until we have become one of the biggest Women’s clubs in Wales. This means that we can offer members competitive hockey what ever their ability.  At the start of the 2012/13 season Whitchurch Saints LHC and Whitchurch Hockey Club formally merged and we are now one club.

 Kit

Home team kit is Navy/Blue shirts/Navy skirts or skorts/Navy & White hooped socks. Away games we wear White/Grey shirts, Navy skirts or skorts & Red & White hooped socks.

Senior players are required to purchase a club shirt. Plain navy or plain white socks and a dark colour gym skirt will do to start with. You must wear shin pads and it is advisable to wear a gum shield and gloves to avoid unnecessary injuries. These are available at all good sports shops for a reasonable price and are well worth the expense.

Kit can be purchased from the Kit Manager (contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. ).

Matches

The majority of our home matches are played at Whitchurch High School but due to pitch availability we sometimes have home matches at other local pitches (e.g. National Hockey Centre, University of South Wales, and Hawthorn School). League matches are usually played on Saturdays with any cup games played on Sundays. For our away matches we meet at the school and we then organise who is to drive etc.

Match Cancellation

In the unlikely event of a match cancellation the Captain or Team Manager will let all players know as soon as possible.

If you are unable to play (i.e. in the event of extreme sickness!) please call the relevant captain. If you cannot get hold of your Captain then call one of the other team’s Captains and the message will be passed on.

Away matches petrol allowance

For away matches a petrol allowance is given to those who take their car (3 players or more in a car).  A petrol expense form can be obtained from WHC Admin Manager, please complete and send to Vikki Stroud who will organise payment.  Expenses will not be paid unless Annual Subs & Match fees payments are up to date.

Petrol rates are NOT paid for home matches – Whitchurch, Hawthorn & Pontypridd astro pitch.
