Triton Hockey Club Delight At Unveiling New Pitch

17 October 2019 by Tim Statham

The Alsager Sports Hub welcomed its first activities on Saturday 28 September. The Hub has been built on the former Manchester Metropolitan University campus off Dunnocksfold Road after AFC Alsager and Triton Hockey Club successfully fought a fantastic campaign, backed by Congleton MP Fiona Bruce and Sport England, to ensure that a substantial sports legacy remained on the site.

Triton warms up on the fantastic new 2G pitch

Triton HC in particular is delighted to welcome the 2019/20 hockey season by moving to its brand new pitch at the Alsager Sports Hub. The Hub is a wonderful facility that will renew the Club’s ambitions to grow hockey in the South Cheshire area and the new pitch is a tremendous boost to the Club.

The Club has grown from originally fielding four teams on each Saturday to nine in recent seasons meaning that two pitches are needed to fulfil both fixtures and training meaning the existing pitch at Alsager School remains a key to home fixture management. Junior development both within the Club and in the East Cheshire Area will also dramatically benefit from the new facility as extra games, tournaments and training can be hosted in this modern and very much fit for purpose environment.

Previously Triton and AFC Alsager both took advantage of the old university pitches in Alsager to fulfil training and game commitments. When Manchester Metropolitan University announced its intention to sell the Alsager campus for a housing development a determined effort began to keep sports facilities on the site. Led by the tenacious efforts of Triton HC President Stephen Wade, with invaluable support from Fiona Bruce MP and Sport England, Triton HC and East Cheshire have now secured a fantastic new facility at the Alsager Sports Hub. Mr Wade commented “The Sports Hub was delivered following a long campaign spearheaded by members from THC and AFC Alsager with the steadfast support of our local MP Fiona Bruce. It’s fantastic to see it finally open and I would like to thank everyone who has supported us along the way”.

The Collerick Pavillion with its first rate facilities for players

The new Sports Hub not only provides a fabulous state of the art floodlit 2G hockey and 3G football pitches but also has 5 grass football pitches, 8 high quality changing room social space, spectator area and parking spaces on site. This will allow players not only to enjoy a high quality playing surface but also the home comforts of all the support facilities. Parents and spectators will feel much more a part of Club activities and all of this can only help broaden the appeal of hockey and football to grow in popularity.

Evening training on the astro pitches

Triton played its first league games at the Hub on Saturday 28 September 2019 after an excited group of juniors enjoyed their first training session on the new astro turf earlier that morning. The Club will now switch its weeknight training sessions to the Hub from its temporary home in Sandbach starting on Tuesday 1 October. The Club also plans a grand opening of the pitch in the near future to celebrate what will be an exciting new chapter in the South Cheshire Club’s history. However Triton HC Chair Suzanne Colclough knows that the hard work is about to begin for the Club “We are determined to make the most of this wonderful legacy.

But this means growing the Club in terms of playing and finances as we look to attract more players of all ages to the game and also utilise the pitch to improve the Club’s finances through sponsorship opportunities”. Anyone interested in being a sponsorship partner should either contact Chris Calam chriscalam@yahoo.co.uk or Triton Hockey Club through Facebook or Twitter.
