2018/2019 Season Awards


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.

Greens show great spirit on mixed weekend of results


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. [...]

Confidence boosting win


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. The Greens played with grit and tenacity, always looking dangerous on the break, with Emily on the end of excellent passes from Lucy, and Kylah, playing centre forward, proving to be a real handful. 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 [...]

Solid results despite struggles


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. Saturday saw 10 players line up against Dalston, but we were competitive from the start with Sheelagh supporting the midfield duo of Rio and Mary, trying to find the pass for the forwards to create opportunities to score. 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 [...]

7 up against Dalston


7 up against Dalston After a fighting 3-1 loss against Keswick, Ambleside bounced straight back with a 7-1 victory against Dalston in the Cumbria League.The Greens enjoyed the majority of the play in the first half, but struggled to find their best form against a Dalston side who defended with great resolve, their Goalkeeper putting in an impressive display. However, Ambleside's perseverance paid off, securing the breakthrough with two first half goals from Maddie and Donna.A few tweaks to the system in the second half proved more lucrative, as more expansive play enabled the team to break through the stubborn [...]
