We are a friendly club in Bristol keen to welcome new players of all abilities. We field two teams and we play in winter and summer leagues.
We value to the social side of our club as much as the hockey and try to arrange regular social events from beer festivals, wine tasting, and fancy dress nights out.
Don\\\'t forget the social side of our club. We arrange regular social events such as bowling, beer tasting, roller discos and bubble football
We play throughout the summer in leagues and tournaments.

Our first league game of the new year saw us away to Westberries (WB) on a rather chilly January morning (just ask Sledger!)
Despite leaving plenty of time to get to the pitch, Brownie realised she had the wrong kit so rushed home to change…first fine of the day…tick! Quick team talk in the changing room and we made our way to pitch to warm up only for Dave to be caught short en route so she decided to try out the new changing rooms at CD. Will be very nice when all finished….. the doors should be working properly by then and people will be able to leave the toilet independently of each other and not get locked out……yes, that’s fine no. 2….tick! Poor Dave 😉
So….to the game!

*For the short version, skip to the end!
So, were back at home this week to face Lydney2. It was a very chilli start to the day, noted by the fact that half the BAC team refused to go outside into the dugout! After a quick ‘whiteboard run through’ from Dave, BAC we raring to get out there and get the 3 points. I, on the other hand, was still puzzled by the term ‘defender danger’!
After a good warm up, BAC were more than up for it.

Disclaimer: The author of this week’s report was not present for the warm up or the first 5/10 minutes of the game and was not on the pitch so has had to rely on reports from others. Any exaggerations/inaccuracies are therefore mostly Bish and Becky’s fault!
BAC enjoyed an unorthodox warm up, made up of a run around the car park and a very quick hit about on the pitch. And before the game got underway the teams observed two minutes’ silence (BAC sporting their poppies for kits) to mark remembrance weekend.
Well the day started with us all arriving early and on time! There was a good pre-talk tactics, with the most important statement of let’s attack as we are at our best when we’re attacking. We were all pumped and ready to go. Apparently invisible Ali had nothing on this week’s umpire as he had an invisible coin…… the less said about that the better.
Any way we started well attacking just the finishing touches missing and good saves by their keeper. They came back at us and put us under some pressure, but we defended well and we attacked and won a short corner, which Bish Bash Bosh scored from Tinny’s pass another good short corner routine by BAC 1-0.
