Sunday 14th September - NW Kent U12s & U13s (Boys & Girls) Assessment Day
Are you a boy or girl, born in 1996 or 1997, want to get some high quality hockey coaching and represent your local area at hockey? If so, why not come along to the astro-turf pitch at Hurstmere School for Boys on Sunday 14th September and try out for the NW Kent Junior Development Centre?
The existing county squads system for Kent will be gradually replaced
by England Hockey’s Single System. This includes the creation of
many JDC’s all around Kent, which will feed players into the fewer
JAC’s - Junior Academy Centres (the equivalent to the old County
squads). Each will have squads at every age group – this season
U12 and U13 boys and girls will be recruited. This means more children
will have the opportunity to play representative hockey, and will allow
late-developers to progress when they eventually blossom. Bexley’s
JDC will be based at Hurstmere School for Boys, and the U12s and U13s
assessment day is on Sunday 14th September. If your child was born in
1996 or 1997, please fill in and return the attached form to Cathy Gilliat-Smith.

BBHC youngsters lead the way in Manchester
Two Bexleyheath & Belvedere Hockey Club youngsters proudly led the German & Irish Men’s hockey teams at EuroHockey Nations Championships in Manchester last weekend.
Louis Costello-Wright and Nakhil Chana from Bexleyheath & Belvedere Hockey Club (BBHC) were chosen to be mascots for two international teams at the EuroHockey Nations Championships. Louis escorted the Germany’s Men’s team on Sunday 19th August, and Nakhil led out Ireland’s Men’s team on Tuesday 21st. The competition runs from 18th to 26th August at the Belle Vue Hockey Centre in Manchester and is an Olympic qualifying tournament for European hockey. Her Royal Highness the Countess of Wessex, the patron of England Hockey will be attending. BBHC gained England Hockey Clubs 1st accreditation this year so were asked by the governing body to nominate young candidates for the honoured roles of mascots.
Despite a soaking by the weather on Sunday, Louis and his sister had a whale of a time taking in the matches and playing in the event’s “Fun Zone”. The German side that Louis led out soundly beat the Czech Republic 5-0 before he got to cheer on a dominant England side as they drew 2-2 with the tenacious Belgians.
“Louis is mad about his hockey and we already had tickets booked for the championships before he was nominated as a mascot,” said his father Stuart. “He was bursting with pride as he walked onto the pitch with those internationals and I can imagine him setting his sights on England honours himself in a few years time!”
On Monday, Tom Golding and Simon Myers were on hand to receive BBHC’s Clubs 1st accreditation from Former Great Britain international hockey goalkeeper Simon Mason at a formal presentation at the tournament.
Tuesday saw Nakhil Chana’s chance in the limelight, acting as the mascot for Ireland’s Men as they lined up for their daunting match against the mighty Dutch. Little Nakhil got to walk the team onto the pitch, stand for the national anthems, then shake hands with all the giant players! However, the Netherlands could only win by a single goal as the Irish showed the steel that earned them a 1-1 draw against European Champions Spain in their opening match. It provided a great spectacle for Nakhil and his family – just the kind of hockey he hopes to play when grows up!
BB Buster - Win money and raise money for the club!

Sunday 3rd June: BBHC Men's Veterans at Greenwich Hockey Festival
Mark Betteney's swan-song as captain came at the Greenwich Hockey Festival. And what a fine swan he has been, overcoming adversity on many an occasion to guide his experienced charges through another eventful season. Despite the difficutlies on Sunday, we're happy to report that Mark will still be penning memorable match reports for the Vet's next season. May be he could become Matt Thurlow's mentor...?
Sunday 20th May: BBHC's Youth Hockey Roadshow
The Colts section ran its inaugural summer Youth Hockey Roadshow on Sunday 20th May in the morning at Welling School. The event was run in conjunction with the GLA's Summer of Sport initiative.
East Grinstead HC players Scott Ashdown and George Harris were on hand to show local kids and current members their skills and took part in an informative question & answer session. East Grinstead play in the National League Premier Division, Scott is a former GB and England International, and George is the current Wales Men's international goalkeeper. Both were very approachable and engaging.
Gary Rouse, Kent Hockey Development Officer, kindly turned up to present BBHC with our England Hockey Club's 1st certificate.
Prizes were given for the various activities and all attendees got together to pose with our special guests to celebrate our England Hockey Club's 1st award.

Annual General Meeting 2006/07: 18th April - see right hand column
Needing only a point, a 4-1 win away to Worthing sealed the championship for the BBHC's Men's 1st XI on Saturday on the last day of the season, finishing ahead of Ashford and Eastbourne. It was good iming since the club dinner was held int he evening. The Men's 2's looked to have missed out on promotion despite a 5-2 win against Holcombe 3As. They , finished behind Sevenoaks by one goal with Canterbury 4A's unlikely to slip up against Sutton Valence. The Men's 3's ended the season strongly with a 6-1 win away to Gravesham but missed out on the singular promotion spot to Ashford.
The Men's 4's beat Gravesham 3-2 to finish 4th, the 5th XI lost 7-2 away to Old Bordenians to finish 6th, the 6th XI beat Bexley Invicta 2-0 to finish 9th, and the Veterans snatched a draw from the jaws of victory to drew 3-3 with the mighty Wallington.
The Ladies' 1st XI lost 2-1 to Waltham Forest to finish
11th but avoided relegation, the 2's lost 2-1 to Ashford
and will finish 9th, while
drew 0-0 with Gore Court and could finish 5th dependent
on other results.

The U18 Boys finally won a game this season! Emerging
bleary-eyed from the club dinner and the arrival of
British Summer TIme on Sunday, they ousted Ashford
6-2 thanks to a great team performance and 2 goals
apiece from Sam Ashenden, Lee Humber and Vince Moore.
Lee missed a penalty stroke, but I won't mention it.

Another near-disastrous result saw the Men's 1's draw 3-3, coming back from the brink of a 3-0 shock defeat. Thankfully, the Men's 2's and 3's both won to keep up the presure at the top of their divisions. Does anyone know why the fixture involving the 2 Sevenoaks teams in Kent Open League Premier B was postponed.....?
Men's 1's: 1st XI Kent/Sussex Regional
Men's 2's: South Open Kent/Sussex Division One
Men's 3's: Kent Open League Premier B
The Ladies 1's and 3's both drew 1-1 against Bromley & Beckenham and Old Williamsonians, respectively, while the 2's lost 4-2 to Sevenoaks.
And the U14 Boys travelled to Herne Bay and won 1-0, their second of the season. Congrats, lads!
Men's 1's stutter but stay top, Men's 2's & 3's gain vital wins
The Men's 1's failed to bury the game at home to Herne
Bay and dropped 2 points thanks to a last minute penalty
corner goal.Thankfully, both of their nearest rivals
(Ahsford, and Eastbourne) lost! The 2's showed great
fight against the tough Canterbury 4As
hey were tenacious in he D and ran out 2-1 winners.
The 3's took a while to get going but ended up 4-1
winners at home to Old Bordenians. Both sides have
set up a nailbiting end to the season, see their tables:
Men's 2's: South Open Kent/Sussex Division One
Men's 3's: Kent Open League Premier B
Meanwhile, the Ladies 1's recorded a vital (walkover) win against St Albans.
Men's 1's regain top spot, while Men's 2's & 3's keep up the pressure
A 4-2 away win at Folkestone and a 5-1 loss for Ashford saw BBHC return to the top of the Kent/Sussex Regional Division with 3 games still to play. The 2's and 3's also won to keep them in contention in their respective divisions, setting up a nail-biting run in to gain promotion. The 4's won 3-0 vs Sevenoaks, the 5's drew 2-2 with Old WIlliamsonians, the 6's lost 5-1 to Folkestone, and the Veteran's game was abandoned at 1-1 thanks to an unfortunate incident (gravity was to blame, I hear...!).
Meanwhile, the Ladies 1's and 2's lost 5-0 but the 3's continued their winning streak with a 1-0 victory against Ashford.
Ladies: Any chance of any match reports, even if it's just 3 or 4 sentences?
Mens' 1's lose again and slip to 2nd while 2's & 3's gain vital wins
Another poor result for the Men's 1st XI saw them slip to 2nd place thanks to a 3-2 loss at home to lowly Blackheath, hence the brief match report. However, the 2nd and 3rd XI's won 5-3 and 2-0 respectively to maintain their promotion challenges. However, the 4's and 5's lost 3-1 and 5-1, while the Ladies' 1st XI drew 2-2 with Hertford. Finally, the Ladies' 3's won again, beating Gore Court 3-0 at home.
Mens' 1's lose but stay top, Men's 2's lose in Cup but Ladies 1's through to Kent Plate Final
The Men's 1's were off form on Saturday away at Eastourne, going down 1-0. However, they remained top of the league thanks to Tunbridge Wells' win against fellow-contenders, Ashford. The 2's strolled past Horsham on Saturday but lost 5-3 to the impressive Staines in their 3rd round, England Hockey 2nd Xi Trophy match on Sunday.
The Ladies 1's lost 1-0 to Gore Court on Sunday but beat Ashford on penalty strokes on Sunday in their Kent Trophy semi final match. Good news for the other ladies' teams, with the 2's wining 2-1 and the 3's winning 2-0.
Mens' 1's march past Valence but 2's have difficulty....
The Men's 1's continued their winning streak to remain top of the Kent/Sussex Regional division with a 5-2 win over Sutton Valence. However, a slightly miffed 2nd XI drew 4-4 with the same club to make their promotion hopes a touch more distant. The Men's 4's drew 0-0 at HSBC, the 5's trounced Burnt Ash 6-1 while the 6's lost 2-1 to Ash and the U14 Boys lost 3-0 at home to Folkestone.
No game this weekend for the Ladies 1's, but the 2's lost 2-1 to Meopham and the 3's won 3-2 against Greenwich Polygons.
Wins for Mens' 1's, 2's and 4's, while Men's 3's lose ground
The Men's 1's came from behind to win 3-1 at Tunbridge Wells and maintain their 2 point lead at the top of Kent Sussex Regional Division, and the 2nd's gain revenge over Penguins with a 6-1 win. Equally pleasing was the 7-1 win for the Men's 4th XI. However, the Men's 3's were left ruing their poor finishing after a 0-0 draw with Tunbridge Wells came on the same day that fellow league leaders Anchorians and Ashford lost to resurgent Sevenoaks teams.
On Sunday, the U18 Boys suffered further disappointment as they went down 3-1 to a Gillingham Anchorians side who were twice redced to 10 men. Next opponents are Canterbury then BromBecks! The wooden spoon beckons!
Mens' 1's and 2's edge to wins, U18 Boys lose on penalty flicks
The Men's 1's made hard work of a 3-2 win against Old Williamsonians while the 2's got the best of a 9-goal thriller away to Canterbury 4's. And it was good news for the Men's 3's as they also beat Old Willies, whilst the 5ths beath Blackeath 3-2 and the 6's came from behind to draw 2-2 with Wellcome. The Ladies 2's won 3-2 at BromBecks but the 1's lost 1-0 at home to Broxbourne.
On Sunday, the U18 Boys ventured down to Hastings to play South Saxons in the England Hockey's U18 Boys' Plate. It was 1-1 at full time but the lads lost 4-2 on penalty flicks!
Mens' 1's beat Burnt Ash to remain top
The Men's 1's remian 2 points ahead of Ashford at the top of the Kent Sussex Regional Division after a 2-1 victory in their local derby match with Burnt Ash. However, Jamie remains a fugitive after absconding from RSPB custody following an "incident" with a passing bird....
On Sunday, the U14 Girls beat Gravesend 1-0, and the Ladies 1st XI beat University of Kent 7-1 in the Kent Cup. Julie Somers-Bayley dominated the scoresheet with 4 goals.
Mens' 1's and 3's beat Ashford and 2's pip Woking in the Cup
The Men's 1's and 3's faced table-toppers Ashford in their respective league matches and both won 2-1 in two great games. The 1's now go top while the 3's remain in the running for promotion with their season reignited.
Elsewhere, the Men's 2's won 6-2 at Eastbourne but at a cost - Alex Webster suffered a clean break to his left forearm 15 minutes from the end of the match. They went on to win their EH 2nd XI Trophy match 2-1 on Sunday against Woking, a team from 3 divisions above.
WILDEBEEST CUP (Boxing Day): Vet's reign continues!
The "Wet Ears", led by Alex Webster, took on their elders (and their betters) on Boxing Day and were beaten yet again. Mark Betteney relates the tale of the latest instalment of this festive fixture.

RESULTS: Men's 1st XI win again and Men's 4th XI edge out Gravesham
There were wins for the Men's 1st, 4th and 5th XI's and a disappointing draw for the Men's 3rd XI. That 4-2 win against Worthing keeps the 1's in 2nd place over Christmas while the 2's and 3's have faltered in the last 2 weeks.
The Ladies' 1st XI travelled to West Herts and lost 3-0.
RESULTS: Men's 1st XI and U14 Girls march on while the rest of the club disappoint
Meanwhile, only two teams finished the weekend with wins. The Men's 1st XI keep up the pressure on Ashford at the Top of the Kent/Sussex Regional division with a 4-0 win over Horsham. And the U14 Girls had a satisfying win against B. Ash.
Jack Petchey Foundation Awards
We're pleased to inform you that BBHC has been accepted by the Jack Petchey Foundation to join their awards scheme. This will enable the Colts' section to recognise and reward young people in our club for their achievements, and not neccesarily those who are the best at things. For example, they can be young people who have put in a lot of time and effort into their participation in BBHC. Each award comes with a grant that can be spent on buying items on a "Wish list" for the Colts' section. This list is made up of suggestions by our young people.
RESULTS: Men's 3rd XI rampant, Men's 1st XI close to dreamland
The Men's 3rd XI upped their goal tally to 16 in three matches thanks to another 4 from the quietly-spoken Andy Humber in their 8-1 drubbing of Old Bordenians. That's 2 jugs of ale that he owes his team this Saturday! This puts them 2nd in Kent Open Premier B on goal difference to Ashford. The Men's 1st XI also stay 2nd to Ashford after a "dream-like" 6-3 win away to Herne Bay. And the Men's 2nd XI stay 2nd after a 1-1 draw against Canterbury's stars of '88. Unfortunately, the Ladies' 1's were pipped at the death, 1-0, by BromBecks.
RESULTS: 1st XI's cruise to victories
Both the Ladies' and Men's 1st XI's cruised to victories this weekend. Dan Lucas' classy finish past the onrushing Folkestone keeper helped the Men to a 5-3 win. A brace from Ashleigh Davenport and a clean sheet saw the Ladies win 4-0. The Ladies' 3rd XI had an outstanding result against Old Williamsonians, winning 7-0.
On Sunday, the Ladies' 1st XI narrowly lost 1-0 to Canterbury in the Cup thanks to a late penalty corner. Meanwhile, the U18 Boys produced a great performance in their first match of the season. They faced Guildford in the England Hockey Cup and lost 2-0 thanks to a pair of first half goals.
RESULTS: Andreas despatches Blackheath
The Men's 1st XI cruised to a 5-1 win over struggling Blackheath thanks to 5 goals from their player-coach Andreas Labourt. It was a mixed bag for the remaining Men's sides with wins for the 2nds and 4ths. Unfortunately, all 3 Ladies' teams suffered losses.
On a birghter note, the U14 Girls notched up their first ever win with a 1-0 result at home to Holcombe on Sunday.
RESULTS: Mens 2nd XI score big!
The big result from this week was the Mens 2s, netting 9 goals and conceding none away to Horsham. The Mens 1st XI won on a single goal at home to Eastbourne, while the Ladies 1st XI lost 1-2 to Hertford away.
The boys U14's suffered an unfortunate loss at home to Folkstone, 0-2.
RESULTS: Mens1st XI out of the Kent Cup
At home to Canterbury on Sunday, BBHC 1st XI held a 1-0 lead in the first half only to be defeated 7-3. Goals from Pete Stanley, Mark Ashby and Andres Labourt were not enough.
Saturday saw good results from most teams with victories for both the mens 1st XI and ladies' 1st XI.
The Girls U14's also did very well on Sunday despite a 2-10 defeat to BromBecks.
RESULTS: Ladies' 1st XI hold firm in Stevenage
The Ladies' 1st XI braved the traffic round the M25 to draw 0-0 with mid-table Stevenage. The other Ladies' teams had no fixtures but the Men's 1st and 2nd XIs lost out in high-scoring matches. The 4th XI lost 2-0 away at Herne Bay. Thankfully, the Men's 3rd XI made it tough for themselves yet won 1-0 at home to Tunbridge Wells.
However, the result of the weekend came as the 6th XI trounced Maidstone (A) 6-1. All goals came from Colts, with the 3 Chana boys (Karan, Rohan and Tarin) hogging the scoresheet along with Sumeet Dhinsa and the impressive Gareth Jones.
RESULTS: Men's 1st and 3rd XI wins wilt Old Willies
A good weekend of hockey for BBHC's top 3 Men's sides with 3 wins. The 1st and 3rd XIs together put 11 at Old Willaimsonians, while the 2's beat Canterbury 7-0. this contrasted with our 3 Ladies' sides who all slipped to defeats
Meanwhile, the U14 Boys battled out a 0-0 draw with Burnt Ash on Sunday - a great result for a side waiting to turnt he corner.
Friday 11th March 2005: Colts' awards event
BBHC held their annual Colts' awards event on Friday 11th March 2005 at their clubhouse near Welling Utd FC. The event proved to be a success in both and fundraising social terms.

These medals recognise the enthusiasm, skill and good attendance of 4 our U11 players:
- Lauren Frankis,
- Andrew Hawes,
- Annie Hawes,
- Mahdiya Zahir.
U14 Boys Player of the Year: David Humber
A tough season for the U14s due to the wide age-range meant very few of the lads could really shine. However, David has stood out for excelling in all areas of his game. This has contributed to a prolific goalscoring record in Men's matches and his selection in the Kent U13 squad.
U14 Boys Most Improved Player: Jamie Saunders
New to the club this year, Jamie always plays the game and trains with a great attitude regardless of circumstance. This has allowed him to remain focused and develop his skills dramatically this season. A star of the future.
U16 Girls Player of the Year: Sorcha Crowley
Sorcha has been a committed player for BBHC U16 and Ladies 3rd Xl this year, which have helped all areas of her game and skills to improved. Now being an experience player she was asked to adapt her game for the good of the team, which she achieved, again another asset for BBHC.
U16 Girls Most Improved Player: Leah Kember-Hollands
It was a difficult choice for the U16 most improved player as all have shown great improvement. However, Leah Kember-Hollands demonstrated a great attitude and willingness to learn, proving to be a real asset who will hopefully go far for BBHC.
U16 Boys Player of the Year: Sam Ashenden
Other players have stood out this season in different league matches, but Sam has provided the consistency and structure in midfield for the team to compete and his team-mates to progress.
U16 Boys Most Improved Player: Alfie Johnson
A big year for Alfie. He has developed the most, from his displays at the London Heathrow Youth Games for Bexley, through to captaining the U16s, gaining Kent U15's recognition and becoming a regular in BBHC's Men's 2nd XI.
David Humber selected for Kent U13 Boys' hockey squad!
On Wednesday 10th November, BBHC U14 and U16 Boys player David Humber found out he had been selected for the Kent U13 Boys' hockey squad.
He had made it through to the second and final screening round at the Duke of York School in Dover on Sunday 7th November. He was understandably nervous. However, he capped a solid performance during the trials with a trademark reverse-stick, "LBZ" finish in a match at the end of the session!
He joins Ashleigh Davenport and Alfie Johnson in representing Kent. His first session with the squad is on Sunday 5th December.
Excellent work, David! The whole Club congratulates you and hope you do well!
His first training session will be on Sunday 19th December. If he is selected, his first match will be on Saturday 1st January 2005 in Canterbury - his "teetotal" father, Andy, is understandably over the moon!
Kent U15 success for Alfie Johnson
BHC U16 Boys captain, Alfie Johnson, has been picked for the Kent U15 Boys squad. Alfie joins Ashleigh Davenport as a county squad member. His proud father, Alan, is now fulfilling life-long ambition to chauffeur a county star around the south of England!
Congratulations to Afie from everyone at BBHC!
Mention should also be made to Andrew Mendl and Vince Moore who also represented BBHC at the Kent U15 Boys trials, and to Sam Ashenden, Tom Golding, and Lee Humber who attended the Kent U16 Boys trials. Tom came very close to making the cut. However, he can take solace from the fact that his superb performances last season and in preseason have resulted in Men's 1st XI recognition - Kent's loss is our gain!
