We are delighted to announce that Staveley Ladies Hockey Club have
combined with Chesterfield Hockey Club, previously a men's Club, to
form the new Club under the CHC banner.
The Ladies have worked closely with the Men for many years in the development of our youngsters - of both sexes and it is wonderful for us now to be part of one much bigger club.
This year will be a period of change, whilst the two clubs' administrations are merged. For some time, the Ladies website and Facebook pages under the umbrella name of Staveley Ladies Hockey Club will remain until we can develop a suitable new presentation of our website and social media.
See Fixtures page for Men's and Ladies' fixtures 2021/22 which will be posted as soon as possible. We are now part of the Yorkshire and North East Region of the England Hockey Association.
We are a rapidly expanding and very friendly Hockey Club now running 4 men's teams, and 4 Ladies' teams, all of which play in the Midlands - plus a "Badgers" team playing in the Yorkshire Development League. We've a long history (1899) and are one of the founder clubs of the Derbyshire Hockey Association. We also run a thriving 'junior-hockey' scheme for youngsters of both sexes up to the age of 16 on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings. We have ClubsFirst Accreditation, regularly re-assessed and renewed, and Sport England Club Mark. We welcome new members, adult and junior, so if you're interested do please telephone one of our "Contacts", or e-mail general enquiries to: email@example.com.

Bob did so much for our Club and County over the years.
He joined the Club from Loughborough Colleges after he’d graduated. He rapidly established himself in our 1st XI along with the County 1st XI and it wasn’t long before he captained both sides – and played representative hockey for the Midlands.
He played as 1st Captain for many many years, helping the Club firstly to strengthen and grow with fixtures against some of the best that Yorkshire and the North Midlands had to offer and then to consolidate the 1st XIs position in the second highest league in the Midlands with the introduction of League Hockey.
He was a major contributor to the Club also in other ways –
• through his positions on the Club’s General and Selection Committees, again for many years.
• through his support for mini-hockey and in the original “Badgers” team
Another significant contribution was to provide two sons, Fraser and Christian, both of whom developed to be excellent hockey players and now, in Christian, at the top level in hockey coaching.
There is so much more we could write about Bob and so many of our members, past and present, will have been touched by his influence and always in a positive manner.
We offer our most sincere condolences to Josie, his partner, to Fraser and Christian and their families.

2019 was a summer of success so far for two other Chesterfield
Hockey Club’s juniors.
Rising star Joe Morton was selected to play for the Pennine Pumas Under 17 squad in the England Hockey Futures Cup competition featuring the best young players in England, Wales and Scotland playing in six regional teams.
Joe also took part in a Home Nations tournament as part of the Diploma in Sporting Excellence (DiSE) program at Lilleshall national sports centre. Joe captained England ‘Red’ and came away with a silver medal, losing to England U16s on penalties after the game was tied 2-2 in normal time. The event also formed part of the assessment process for the England U18s squad.
There was also more good news with young umpire Esther Beardsley being appointed to officiate at the Futures Cup.
This came after impressing during the regional Performance Centre Competition days and working incredibly hard over the past few seasons.
St Mary’s pupil Esther has also been promoted to the Performance Support Panel for young umpires in the Midlands.
