UBMHC 4th XI Vs Westbury & UB B

29 October 2012 at 11:32

Having not had a fixture on Wednesday, a fresh and eager 4th XI turned up to the Dingle fortress on a chilly Saturday afternoon to face Westbury. We decided pre-match that this was to be an easy win against the ‘bang it from the back XI’. In worryingly typical fashion however, UBMHC went 1-0 down via a deflection from your sports correspondant this week. In the eyes of Luigi/Spal Bol this ruined his Dolmio day and was in itself worthy of a dick of the day nomination. We did not dwell for long and soon were level through Lawson. Westbury’s finest soon came back at us though and 2-1 ensued. We shall not dwell on this matter. Rather we shall focus on equaliser number 2, courtesy of man of the match Josh ‘Oceana anyone?’ Bryce’s sublime strike. Brycey picked up a somewhat speculative ball at the top of the D and, still looking a touch blue from Smurf Night smashed a belter beyond the keeper. From his repeated cries of, ‘Oh my God it’s gone in,’ we can tell that he fires these in on a regular basis. Top marks for the goal, celebration needs work though. And there the half ended.

Having played some sublime hockey, interspersed with some less good moments, UBMHC began the second half in high spirits. Will ‘it’s not gay if you say banter’ Hughes

epitomised this approach, picking the  ball up in acres on the right of the D before blazing a shot through the keeper. Firmly on top at this point, the 4s were looking to press on with one eye on goal difference but a sharp short corner from Westbury swiftly put a stop to such ideals. 3-3. The end-to-end melée continued as Deeyam ‘mate I may as well live in Bunker’ Patel picked up the ball in the Westbury half. His hit came back off the post and onto the back of an unwitting keeper before rolling into the goal. For his multiple superman impressions in the last 10 though we’ll give this one to Deeyam. These last few minutes were pretty shaky with Westbury being awarded short after short; some dubious, some clear cut, some dick-of-the-day worthy. Nevertheless a top effort from all in white and some heroic last ditch defending from Bunker Patel and Ben ‘I sleep with a bong’ Steel ensured that UBHMC came through victorious.

With the 4s looking very strong, particularly going forward, there is plenty of cause for optimism going into our next few games.

UBMHC 2nd XI vs Exeter C

28 October 2012 at 15:39

2’s vs Exeter

The first home game of the season at fortress Dingle for the new look 2’s came on a dull grey afternoon, yet the air was laden with a sense of excitement matched only by the look on Stirling’s face every time he sets eyes upon Iola.It was a day of many firsts, the first chance for the new batch of fresh to pull on the colours of the UBMHC, a sense of pride felt by few in their lifetime. It was the first time in many years the 2’s had played Exeter C in the league without the usual hype of the cup. And most shockingly it was the first time yours truly would play up front for the UBMHC. A tactical move thought by many to be no more successful than Gamble’s advances on Joie Leigh.After the usual rigmarole of the warm up and a solid coin toss the game got underway with a Bristol push back. Bristol’s luck continued throughout the opening minutes of the game and Bristol quickly took the lead due to a somewhat fortuitous own goal from Exeter after they failed to control a ball crashed into the D from Bristol. Another couple of minutes passed and as Exeter’s questionable defence got used to the slow pitch Summers was the first to react to a loose pass at the top of the D and crashed a first time that beat the keeper but unfortunately also beat the post by a matter of inches. A chance to go 2-0 up squandered.Following a bright start from Bristol the foot came off the pedal slightly and Exeter’s midfield settled into the game and began to dictate proceedings. A long period of sustained pressure from Exeter only disrupted by a couple of promising counters from Bristol, saw several strong saves from Goddard Jnr between the sticks. Until a great strike caught Freddie slightly off guard and squeezed in between his legs.The game then balanced out with few chances for either side as the fresh fronted up in midfield and Bristol’s defence, spearheaded by some firm challenges from Samuels and Remy, became as tight as Scott Darroch’s purse strings.After an encouraging and direct team talk to the team led by Dom, making the most of his years of experience and tactical nouse, the team set about the second half in a positive manner and it soon paid off.Within 5 minutes we won a short and a slick routine was performed to perfection, with Stupid getting his angles right and putting the ball on a plate for panther like Paris to deflect in at the back post. Taking the 2’s short corner conversion rate for the season thus far to 1 goal from 2 shorts, a more impressive return than #hatenuttall had been getting off Hugill in recent times!With the pack of springer spaniels playing up front running themselves off the park the press began to work well and Exeter resorted to their CB monster aerial for the rest of the half. The bombardment that ensued has not been seen since Blitzkrieg during WW2.Despite battling hard and putting bodies on the line this ultimately became our downfall as Fresher Jack was hit on the line and a P-flick awarded to Exeter which they scored with an impressive flick to the top left corner leaving Goddard Jnr sprawling.The game then fell back into a stale mate with few chances, one of which squirted through to Summers who in an attempt to readjust due to a late deflection ended up looking like a pleb performing some form of seal dive as he attempted to get his stick to the ball, and earned himself dick of the day as a result with the ball passing him untroubled.On the whole a decent and probably fair result against a decent who had just won promotion and had started the season with two wins. It was testament to the teams work rate that we put an end to their momentum.

Ladies 4th XI vs Cardiff Met 3rd XI

26 October 2012 at 15:55

After a disappointing start to the season, Bristol 4XI were determined to get back on track. A lengthy warm up was undertaken, minus captain O. Gotley who was scrabbling around in search of socks and then proceeded to ‘do it alone’ once aforementioned socks were in her possession. Fresher A. Whiteman took to the goal for “bants”, with moves copied from the UBMHC 1XI goalie she had admired from afar imprinted in her memory. 
Cardiff Met 3s took possession early on, but with a solid defence Bristol stood strong and soon got into a good rhythm. The first goal came from L. Clark with a stonking shot from the top of the D and Bristol were elated. 1-0. A strong press frustrated the Cardiff defence with the UBLHC forwards keeping us firmly in the driving seat. A great opportunity arose to put another goal on the scoreboard, with a one –on-one however F. Hill decided to play football instead.A Bristol short corner resulted in the second goal of the day, with a slip to A. Ahluwalia who drove the ball into the backboard. 2-0.
At half time we celebrated the arrival of a certain R. Elston (who just a few hours later got very friendly with forward C. Hobart-Smith). No jelly was anywhere in sight, so everyone received a mini button as a thanks for the good work so far. 
Bristol dominated early in the second half, with lots of good runs from L. Ellis. Another short corner was won and F. Hill regained some dignity with a top notch injection to O. Gotley who sent the ball home in the bottom left corner. 3-0. In the last few minutes Cardiff clawed one back past A. Whiteman who had gotten prematurely excited about the prospect of a clean sheet. 3-1.
A good all round performance by the team, bring on next week!

Ladies 4th XI VS Glamorgan 1st XI

26 October 2012 at 15:31

Having waited for the boys to finish their match, the Ladies 4’s were eager to get on the pitch and play. We started well with some great plays up the wing by Frankie Hill. However a couple of scrappy passes allowed Glamorgan to gain a quick lead. There was some good play in the mids, and a few missed opportunities in the D, but the Glamorgan attack were more aggressive and definitely seemed to want the ball more. By the end of the first half Glamorgan had taken advantage of any opportunity to score, and whilst Bristol put up a good defence, we did not finish our opportunities, leaving the score at 3-0. The boys cheering us on in the second half definitely worked to our advantage and Bristol continued to make good breaks, with a fair few shots on goal. The chanting and the aid of the Boom Box spurred us on, and lead to a goal from a short corner, scored by Amber Ahluwalia. This lifted our spirits for a while, but unfortunately Glamorgan managed to come back even stronger, to leave the score at a not so good 7-1.

Ladies 1st XI vs Cambridge

26 October 2012 at 14:54

Rarely can a Sports(wo)man play a game where the final result is announced half an hour after the game. 
The Ladies First team came off the Cambridge pitch having thought we had managed to achieve a well deserved draw against a respectable Cambridge side. The score was 1-0 to Cambridge until the last minute where we earnt a short corner. The short corner was scored in the second phase by Kirsty Crampton Smith. Sumasolts, fistpumps and almost tears (we really do love hockey!!) were expressed as we left the pitch thinking we had come away with a draw. But no. Once more sporting officals got a crucial decision wrong, nearly as bad as Frank Lampard's dissalowed goal at the world cup (kind of!). As the goal was scored in the second phase and had come an inch out of the D, the goal was dissalowed when we were in the changing rooms. The frustration and dissapointment was clearly expressed on Fresher/Coach Tom's face, following a subsequent strut to the officials and ending with a bottle of wine duc taped to his hands on the bus journey home!
The journey to Cambridge involved some pretty bling eye shades and the film 'friends with benefits' for the rest of the team. Who would have known that the team would discover that the title 'friends with benefits' was, in fact, a recurring theme with one of the freshers *cough* Rhiaan!!
Once we arrived at Cambridge some viewed the beautiful scenery whilst others (unprepared fresh) headed stright to the local Co op to buy their nutricious post match 2 litre bottle of cider- I'm sure one of your 5 a day is in there somewhere :D. After a long hang around and more than enough time to get ready (though some still couldn't find the time to put on their skort the right way round) we started warming up for our first BUCS game. This involved a throwing game, or for those who found throwing to be a physically challenging task (Emma Bevan) a lying on your tummy game and getting constantantly abused.
An early goal from Cambridge put us on the backfoot early in the game. The defence were as solid as ever with Harri, Mandy and Westwood controlling an aggresive and fast attacking side. After a constructive half time team talk, we came out buzzing and ready to boss the second half. For this reason, the game was a game of two halves with Cambridge crumbling under the pressure of our high tempo. Chance after chance came however we just couldn't find the back of the net. 
Unfortunately, the game ended as a 1-0 defeat which should have been a 3-1 victory. This result was decided after an on-off decision whether the final goal was allowed or not. A crushing conclusion ended with a lot of sorrows being drowned, one way or another on a 3 hour bus journey home. This involved a lot of Duc tape and marker pen... yet another Thursday going to your lecture with a moustache or some form of human body part on your forehead. Fab. 
The 2nd/3rd years also took the oppportunity of a 3 hour journey for some 'team bonding.' This was of course conducted by grabbing a fresher and making sure they downed their 2L bottle of cider first. And it would be rude not to have followed this up with an embaressing story about yourself! So the older lot found out that they have some rather unlady-like and farty freshers, and we can't forget to keep an eye on our possesions due to the fresher theif! 
The girls look forward to a home game this week at Coombe Dingle to get back to the winning ways that we had back against Milfield and Bath at pre season.

UBMHC 4th XI Vs Frys

26 October 2012 at 13:38

Having put in a solid performance on Saturday but without success, the 4th XI arrived at “The Frys” with a new found determination. Captain Lawson led by example in turning up late – obviously he’d been running on Grimshaw’s Magic Time (GMT). Despite this early setback, the entourage was on its way and heading to Wellsway’s school.

Our car formation upon arrival resembled something out of the Italian Job as opposed to a bunch of hungover students. But such was the pleasantness of the morning, it forced Ali “Paul Scholes” Hales to describe the bland surroundings as being “awight innit”. Don’t know where you’re from Halesy, but it certainly wasn’t alright. Nevertheless, Ali parked up using the skills he’d learnt from the Fast and Furious on youtube last night and the game got underway.

We started the game well, with Farquhar hitting the post early on. We were playing some liquid hockey with lovely transfers, strong tackling and good posting up. Only occasionally did they get behind us and we dealt with the threat accordingly. After great work from our forwards winning a series of shorts, the pressure paid off when Max “Only carbs on a Wednesday” Haywood scored probably the slowest goal he will score in his UBMHC career in the bottom left corner.

After the interval we started in the same manner as we ended the first half; a lovely 90 ball by (insert joke relating to old age here) Hickey to Farquhar was unlucky to be buried away. All was going well until I decided to have one of those moments. It was UBMHC’s 16 but the anal umpire was unhappy with my positioning of the ball. In my frustration to restart the game what ensued was close to a Chuckle Brothers episode between me and the umpire. The farce got so ridiculous that one of the opposing players asked me what I had been smoking. For once, Ben “Pass me the ganja” Steel was not the focus of attention. Yes, I seemed to have momentarily forgotten the rules of hockey and for this, I deservedly received dick of the day.

It seemed that this brief comic affair had made us lose focus as Frys netted two goals in quick succession. Haywood had also caught the disease of “hockey rules amnesia”; failing to wait for the whistle to restart the game three times in a row. Alas, not resting on our woes, the 4XI fought back and deservedly equalized with somehow an even slower goal than the first by Lawson. We finished on top but could not get that winning goal despite the flurry of shorts near the end.

Man of the Match went to Deeyam Patel after winning a four way nail off which has now become a regular affair with the 4XI. Overall, there were many positives to come from today and we are getting better every game. We can go in confidence for our next match.

UBMHC 4th XI Vs Bath Buccs

26 October 2012 at 13:33

This correspondent’s weekend began with a sneaky trip to the pub on Friday evening. One thing led to another and at 11:45pm, he was surprised to find himself in Mbargos, hand pre-stamped for lounge, trying to get a deal on three bottles of VK, so the “Three Bowyer” challenge could be undertaken. After Lawson and Max arrived, who were “definitely only having a couple of p*nts”, he headed off to Lounge to get some anti-clockwise laps in (they’re quicker).

Come Saturday morning, your correspondent found himself lying on the sofa, over cooked scrambled egg baguette in hand, eagerly anticipating the first 4thXI double header of the season. Welcome to your first (and hopefully not of many) Ali Hales weekend review.

The flagship departed for Bath in some style with the usual Park Row petrol station carnage and some incredibly debatable lead car-ing (fortunately, Max’s pre-scan is much better than his pre-indicate). However, as Lawson had asked us to meet 4 hours ahead of push back, we arrived with plenty of time to have a kick about, and watch the world’s angriest hockey player being told to go home by his own team.

The traditional Bath style warm up ensued (one round the track, a quick stretch, and the usual surprise of how bouncy the pitch was), and the team was soon ready to go. We started well, and created several good chances but unfortunately went 1-0 down following a break and well finished chance from the opposition. Heads however stayed up, and we continued to dominate the first half before scoring from our second or third short corner (well done Nick, and yes – you have scored in every game so far that wasn’t a friendly and that we didn’t lose 1-0). Whilst trying to find the goal to put us ahead we were once again hit on the break, and Fresher Spag Bowl had no option but to clear their forward out in the resulting one-on-one situation. Bath but the subsequent penalty flick away and we were 2-1 down before the break.

General half-time consensus was that we had been the better team, but perhaps a little wasteful in the final third. We headed out into the second half eager to turn the game around as we had done against Plymouth the previous Wednesday. Did we? No. Despite completely dominating the half we failed to score and they bagged another on the counter attack. End of the day, a 3-1 loss but positives to be taken into the Sunday.

We headed off to golf club for some omelette and chips, and voted for a mixture of Steel and Fresher Pete for MoM. Thus ensued the worst game of 10s your ever likely to see. One player didn’t know the rules, and the other was Ben Steel. Nuf said. Steel may have won, but no one deserved it after that.

And you can guess who got dick, for a quite wonderful wipe out in the pre-game fun (and the worst ever attempt at a fresher bandwagon on Fresher Ben (should’ve picked John…)).

Come Sunday morning, the team was looking a little groggy.

Hickey – tagged at the side bar in Lounge at 2:04am the same day. But apparently ate so much pasta he had no hangover. Not sure...

Bryce – Smurf night. Oceana.

Fresher Ted – Night in Durdham bar (2 p*nts, bed by 10, no hangover. As you’d expect from any night in Durdham bar).

Fresher Deeyam – Bunker, 8th time in a week. Hungover, 3 hours sleep.

Steel – Unknown location. Probably still high, 4 hours sleep.

The more acute among you may have noticed our starting centre back duo had a combined total of 7 hours sleep, ideal preparation for any Sunday fixture. The award of ‘In-worst-shape’ however must go to Grimmy, who was so tired he hadn’t had time to do the hair and had to wear a hat. You shall now be passed over to the aforementioned Grimshaw, who will take you through the day’s events…

UBMHC 4th XI Vs Somerset Gryphons

26 October 2012 at 13:25

The late, October sun shone fiercely on the beach at our beloved fortress. The boys were itching to get started after watching the 2s and the excitement was tangible as we pulled on our new stash, fresh and ready to go. In our first competitive game, we were keen to get off to a good start.

The team hadn’t played together before, but there were members from previous years, the old hands of Lawson and Hales, and the old, old, old hands (you know who I mean… that centre forward who drives a car with a roof rack, and like Jimmy Saville scores an average of 13 a season…)

And so, with our new look eleven, we took to the field, armed with early season confidence, new stash and Ben Steel’s cracking general knowledge: for example, did you know that Swindon is really close to Plymouth? (It’s 136 miles, but keep trying Steel…) The first half was fairly even, but we lacked match practice. 50 50s, transfers, posting up were all a little off the ball. We had a couple of half chances, while Dolmio (spag bol fresh) made a few good saves at the other end.

Lawson rallied us at the interval and we pressed harder and higher during the second half. We dominated possession and chances fell our way, including an open goal. I’d love to tell you that there were extenuating circumstances affecting me, that the ball came too quickly, that I didn’t have a lot of time, but they just wouldn’t be true. There’s no two ways about it, a more than deserved dick. The first of many, I don’t doubt.

Their goal was smash and grab, against the run of play and we didn’t deserve to lose. But there’s a long season ahead and Hickey has been around long enough to know that the Romans invented soap, so I’m sure we’ll get winning soon. Man of the Match went to Jamie Stebbing, after comprehensively dominating a four-way nail off. Yes, it was a defeat, but

it was an encouraging one. Let’s focus on Plymouth on Wednesday. Hopefully we won’t have to pick Steel up from Swindon on the way….

Yours,

Alex Marrow

BRISTOL UNIVERSITY 1ST VS UWIC 1ST

23 October 2012 at 21:53

The 17th October signalled the start of the BUCS league for the UBMHC, and for the 1st XI this meant an away trip to UWIC. After a disappointing start to the season, this was an opportunity for team to re write the wrongs that had occurred and finally put some points on the board. Spirits were high, and as George Brown stated in his pre match email it was time to ‘get excited’, inspirational words from a man who has tried this feet and failed on a Wednesday many times before.

After a lengthy warm up, where Gamble already managed to put his name in the hat for dick of the day after tripping over his nimble feet and falling over in the warm up, the 1’s were ready to meet their opponents.

It was a slow start for the away side, which spent the majority of the first half absorbing a lot of pressure. The Met’s hockey skills far out shone their academic abilities; stringing passes together seemed far easier than sentences as they looked after the ball very well in the opening minutes. The UBMHC didn’t have much to be encouraged about apart from a good chance created by Philldog in the middle of the pitch. After stealing the ball off his opposite man he opened up a gap in the defence and slid the ball through to Vanessa, who received the ball on the base line- a move straight off the training paddock. Unfortunately Vanessa couldn’t convert and at the teams disappointment the ball disappeared off the pitch, first chance of the game had gone. It’s fair to say that UWIC loved passing but lacked any serious threat upfront creating very few chances. The defence held out with some great work from the Fresh making up for his incompetent fellow defender Stirling- who was still clearly suffering from the absence of his loved one. It was obvious his thoughts were very much focused on that flight out to Germany that Friday and not on current game. It was clear the only thing that gets this man motivated on Wednesday is the thought of a post-match Skype session.  Unfortunately for the forwards, the first half was a game of shuttles- our favourite pass time. The half time whistle blew with scores level at 0-0.

After an encouraging and inspirational team talk from Ian, the UBMHC took to the second half with much more fight than the first. We came out far stronger and were starting to look very threatening down the right hand side. After a series of attacks, the ball fell to Malthouse who clipped a lightning quick reverse stick shot into the bottom left hand corner. A fine goal. It was a rare occasion and first time this season the 1’s were 1-0 up and looking to dominate the game. It seemed that Bristol were settling in to the game and were in their comfort zone, almost to the point where Ellison decided he had enough of playing hockey , preferring the ball to be off the pitch than on . A man who it seemed lived by the saying ‘if in doubt, put it out’, passing the ball of the pitch was a bizarre call- the rabbit had panicked.

The away team dominated the opening 25 minutes of the second half and created a series of chances. One notable opportunity fell to Scott at the back post after Bates had crashed the ball in and knee height, with Scott free and with an open goal in front of him; he failed to convert a difficult chance.  Moments later the UBMHC were caught on the counter attack, with UWIC on the front foot in a threatening position the captain made a decision to take the man out with a filthy stick tackle. The umpire shortly showed the cheese and he was left to think about his mistake on the side-line.  UWIC piled on the pressure with the clear advantage of an extra man; unfortunately this led to very dubious goal with clear use of the feet. It created uproar, leaving Phil dog screaming his disappointment across the pitch, whether it was the sudden realisation that John had got with Dalrymple the week before or the goal no one will know. But the scores were now level, chances were being created either end with both teams looking for the victory.  It was a day of comedy errors for Gamble, who had an opportunity to threaten the goal down the left hand side but unfortunately his quick feet failed him-it was a shock to both him and the spectators. He was left looking like a potato as the ball shot off the pitch. Heading into the dying moments of the game the UBMHC strongly defended a number of shorts and kept the home side out. The Final whistle blew with the match finishing a draw.

 It was a fair result, but there was a sense of disappointment in the air after the controversial goal that we conceded. Hopefully we can take forward the much improved performance to Dingle this up and coming Wednesday, with a victory taking us to the top of the league.
