Collegians hockey club on drive for new players

2013-03-29 00:00

THE Maritzburg Collegians Hockey Club are on a membership drive.

Consistently one of the top clubs in KwaZulu-Natal and South Africa over the last 50 years, the Collegians committee is determined that the club builds on this proud record.

Collegians have outstanding coaches driving the club and this year the women’s section will be directed by provincial goalkeeper and distinguished Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High School (GHS) first team coach, Taryn de Winnaar.

Gavin Jelley, a prominent coach at Maritzburg College, will continue his outstanding work running the men’s first team squad.

Aside from adult players, high school boys and girls hockey players are also welcome.

Enquiries can be directed to Gavin Jelley at 082 557 6491, Taryn de Winnaar at 082 710 7442 and Brian Edwards at 083 631 1308.

The KZN Inland outdoor leagues are due to start in the first half of next month.

Recent achievements by PMB Collegians have been noteworthy.

The unbeaten PMB Collegians women’s B team won the 2012 KZN Inland Premier Outdoor League, while the women’s A side won the 2013 KZN Inland Premier Indoor League.

The men’s teams performed reasonably well, while the cherry on the top was the great performance of the KZN Inland men’s indoor team, who won the South African Men’s Interprovincial Hockey Tournament held in Pietermaritzburg recently, beating KZN Coastal Raiders in the final. Inland were winners of South Africa’s most prestigious title in the indoor format of the game for a record fifth time in a row.

No less than seven players in the KZN Inland team were Collegians players.

They were Ian Griffiths, Cameron Redmead, Ayden Shrives, Chris Oldnall, James Thomas, Grant Christie and Gavin Jelley (tournament top goalscorer).

A remarkable contribution by Collegians to the provincial cause.
