The club has a proven track record of development with many junior members representing the club at senior level and beyond.

History of the club

Horncastle Hockey Club is a voluntary organisation and was established in November,1970. The club has it’s home at Coronation Walk, Horncastle, in the centre of Lincolnshire, and was founded on one basic principle to provide players with the opportunity to participate in competitive league hockey, regardless of ability.

The club was founded when our current club President George Steadman returned home after four years in the far east (Pictured).

Having been captain of Queen Elizabeths Grammar Schools boys team he decided to get an Old Boys team together and they played their first match against Alford in November 1970 which they lost 3-1 after having scored first with only ten players they tired in the second half.

However, everyone enjoyed the game and wanted to play again and so the club was born. Originally known as Q.E.G.S. Horncastle Old Boys with more and more outside players joining the name was shortened to its present Horncastle H.C.. The founder members still live in the area and support the club to this day.
