It isn’t just our football teams that have enjoyed a fantastic start to the new season … the latest member of the family, Fylde Hockey are also making their mark!

The hockey club, formerly Springfield Hockey, joined us over the summer and will soon move onsite to the 3G pitches at Mill Farm.

Currently based in Preston, Fylde Hockey offers teams for men, women, boys and girls with a strong focus on youth development. The move to Mill Farm will provide the club with international standard playing facilities.
