A Top 5 of Champions Trophy Moments

Here is a Top 5 of videos connected with the Champions Trophy. The women's tournament starts in Rosario on 28th January 2012.

1. Although I didn't see it at the time, I duck every time for the drag flick straight on. This probably gives you an idea of what it is like to be Beth Storry in goal...

2. It is always a great honour to speak with the best player in the world: Luciana Aymar was amazing in Nottingham. Here is some great action from Nottingham mixed with a stirring interview...

And here is a link to some of her other goals...

3. A round-up of England's progress to the bronze medal at the Nottingham tournament in 2010. Featuring plenty of the top England players...

4. A royal visit to the Nottingham Champions Trophy tournament on the last day, July 2010, made for a very special close to the competition.

5. This is by my Dutch friend, Eva and it brings back a few memories of the time spent in Nottingham during July 2010.

Happy New Year and 2012 at Last!

So, 2012 is nearly here!

It's going to be a massive year for hockey in the UK, with the Olympics just around the corner.

Throughout the year I'm going to try and post at least once a week (Fingers-crossed!) with lots of interesting hockey material from across the web. This blog is all about video, so it will focus mostly on that.

I'll be pulling stuff out of the archive and finding material online, so check it out.

Here's two to get us started...

Leicester 2-0 Bowdon Hightown

Before the start of the match there was a minute silence in memory of Di Batterham, a key figure for Leicester during the 1960s and 1970s and also the team manager for the bronze medal winning Great Britain women's hockey team at the 1992 Olympics.
