Message from the President

To all members of Banbridge Hockey Club
This weekend sees the culmination of many hours of planning, meetings, hard work, and soul searching for everyone involved in our delivery of the IHL Finals Weekend.  I would just like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank everyone involved so far and those to be involved this weekend – we simply could not do this without your help.  We have been overwhelmed by the volunteer response from all levels within the club and it is a testament to everyone willingness to help that will hopefully make this weekend a resounding success.
Anyone who has visited Havelock Park over the past 2 days will see the transformation of our grounds from club venue to that of an international quality complex.  A truly remarkable feat in such a short space of time!
I look forward to welcoming you all to the games over the weekend and who knows we may be cheering on a Bann team in the men’s final on Sunday.  Regardless of the results we want to welcome everyone to our Club and ensure that Irish hockey is the real winner over the weekend.  With this in mind I would ask all our supporters to be mindful of the code of conduct within Ulster hockey but at the same time make your voice heard in the right way when cheering on our boys!
Thanks again and lets make our vision a reality by making this the best IHL finals so far.
Neil Madeley
President BHC
