The Men’s Blues are formed of the best and brightest chaps Oxford has to offer. With 11 returning Blues, the team is shaping up to be very competitive and bodes well for a big season. The MBs are epitomised by a work hard, play harder attitude; by day, competing at the highest level on the pitch and, by night, one of the most social teams in Oxford. To be a Men’s Blue is a privilege that lasts a lifetime, with friends and memories that far exceed your OUHC career.
The MBs train twice a week under the expert guidance of Mark Rutherford. Mark has been instrumental to the success of OUHC’s Men’s teams in recent years and will play a pivotal role in our promotional push this season. The Men’s Blues play two matches a week competing in the BUCS South Premier League and in the EH South Premier League. A highlight of the season is the annual Varsity Match, held at Southgate Hockey Club, in front of crowd that regularly exceeds 1000. In addition the MB’s are part of the University’s Blues Performance scheme which provides Strength & Conditioning, Injury Rehabilitation, Nutrition and Sport Psychology support.
I look forward to welcoming new blood into the team and I am waiting with eager anticipation of what we can achieve this year.
