Blues Captain’s Welcome (2019/20)
Hello and Welcome to CUWHC!
I’m Amy Edwards and I will be the Women’s Blue’s Captain for the forthcoming 2019-20 season.
I’m in my third year studying Engineering at Caius, having played in the Blues for the past two years. Previously, I have played for Ulster at U15-U21 and Ireland at U16 level, competed in the UK School Games, and played premier league for Lurgan Ladies Hockey Club.
If you are coming to Cambridge as a fresher, already part of the university or a postgraduate and are interested in playing hockey next year, we would love to hear from you!
Hockey at Cambridge is a great experience – both sporting and social. We play a high standard of hockey, and although it is a considerable time commitment to train, travel and play. It is extremely rewarding and is entirely feasible to play University sport, achieve academically and enjoy a social life.
Especially if you have played regular hockey before, I would encourage coming along to pre-season. Fielding 3 competitive teams is always difficult this early on, but it would be brilliant to see all teams off to a flying start for the season, especially with promotion on our mind. So, I encourage you to come even if you cannot make all of preseason. It is also a great time to meet new people and settle into Cambridge before term kicks off in October.
If you have any queries then don’t hesitate to , and look forward to seeing you in the Autumn!
