Season summary From club coach Amanda Faulkner It’s been a trying season for many reasons, but all our players have shown improvement in both skill and confidence, and I am positive they will continue to go from strength to strength. Thanks to our captains and vice captains, Kim, Sheelagh, Megan and Jill and to Caroline for organising the umpires, who have led our teams superbly all season, it’s not easy organising the teams, and we do appreciate an early response from the players when the teams have been selected. In the Cumbria League we finished 6th, it was a tough season, [...]
Match report: vs Ulverston (H) and Keswick 1s (A) Ambleside were once again in action twice this weekend, facing Ulverston at home on Saturday and Keswick 1s at Cockermouth on Sunday. A thrilling match against Ulverston was a real confidence booster for the team, who dominated for the most part. Time and time again in the first half Ambleside tested their opponent''s defence, with Jess, Lucy and Rio working as excellently as a unit, tearing up and down the pitch. With Maddie, Polly and Caroline always dangerous on the front line, it was surprising that Ambleside reached half time without scoring. [...]
Ambleside travelled to Cockermouth this weekend to play Keswick 2nds in the Cumbria League. With eleven players only, it was a tough game to play in, with Tiff impressive in her first game.

Jess worked tirelessly in midfield , with Mary providing solid support and Tiff played well in her first taste of competitive hockey. Val, Sheelagh, Kim and Jemma had the edge over the opposition with [...]
A double match weekend proved a challenge at the beginning of half term, with a number of first team players absent through illness and injury.

Polly and Emily on the wings never stopped running causing defensive errors, enabling Amber to pounce onto the loose ball. Defensively we were solid, Jill, Kim and Val controlled the majority of the situations, making clean tackles and distributing the [...]
