About Us

The club was formed in 1976, under the Chairpersonship of Trudi Joyce and was affiliated to the Durham County Hockey Association  in the same year.

The chosen strip at that time of red and black is still used to this day, and the team played on the red ash pitch at the Sports Centre.

This newly formed team were expertly run on what was a very tight budget.

Until 1978, the Ladies and Mens hockey clubs were independent. In 1978 the two clubs joined forces, and through the Mens hockey club became a sub-section of the Cricket Club.

Junior hockey was encouraged from the start and still continues to this day.

By 1986 the club had 47 members under Jen King. Coaching sessions were initiated, and the club introduced indoor hockey.

In 1986, the club got to the finals of the Knockout Cup, and in 1987 built on that success by entering the league and achieving promotion from Division 3.

1989 saw 6 players named to the county squad, and this experience led Stockton to victory in a tournament for the first time. Starting in 1989, the Under 19 team won their league 10 seasons running.

In 1992/93, the Under 18s won the All England finals, and the following season saw success in Under 18 and Under 21 leagues and more honours.

In 2000, the club lost a number of it’s younger players to Higher Education, so decided to reduce the number of teams playing in the Saturday league from 2 to 1.
