State League 1 (2) def MCC (0) The Footscray Hockey Club would like to congratulate Amy Scott on being named player of the match in Saturdays State League 1 clash against MCC at the State Hockey Centre. Amy was an integral part of our backline and well supported with Penny Mather, Lexi White, Georgia Hopkins and Caitlin Duggan shutting up shop and delivering ball to our midfield and strikers all day to help cap off our season with a great win. The best on field medal was part of Hockey Victoria’s Women’s Round, the week long celebration of Women’s Hockey included a Women’s Breakfast and the presentation of various awards angled at the promotion of Women in Sport. Also Nicole Virtuoso took home outstanding Female Club Administrator award for her hard work over the last few years. You might expect players to slacken off when they have nothing to gain from a win or loss, regardless of the result we would finish fifth in our first year in WSL1. But we had nothing to worry about with some unfinished business for our girls finishing this season off with our last game against MCC. Last year we also finished off the season playing MCC amd with the hockey community watching we wanted to put in a good show to finish the year. The game got underway with Sam Ellis being...Read More

Our very own Nicole Virtuoso was awarded Women’s Administrator of the Year at Hockey Victoria’s inaugural Women and Girls’ Breakfast this morning. Despite being listed amongst some very renowned and dedicated women administrators from across Victoria, Nicole took out the award (sharing it with Katrina Bales of Hockey Central Victoria). This is an incredible achievement and is well deserved recognition for the years of service Nicole has given to FHC, culminating in the women’s section becoming a SL1 club this year and continuing to field 9 teams. Good on you, Nicole! You are an inspiration to the women and girls of the club, who we hope will follow in your...Read More

When the tall redhead arrived at the ground he was fine much to our delight. We suspect that Judy spoke to him and told him to harden up and he took her advice as most do. Byron is still a game away and has to come back into the side. The crowd was building with our number ticket holder present and showing a keen interest. By the start of...Read More
