    I started playing hockey 54 years ago at the age of 15 in my native Cornwall. I joined East Devon Hockey Club when I moved to Exeter in 1984. I have captained all the teams from 2s to 5s and was Club Chairman for 5 years. I want now to help other young people get that lifetime opportunity of team sport that I have enjoyed and to encourage the future growth and development of a friendly accessible local hockey club.

    Tancocks return to the club after a two year loan at TeignHC has left many fans skeptical. Captain Ash hopes that Tancock can bring strength and flair to the squad. Due to surgery in mid May we hope to see him on pitch early November.

    Website Manager

    Email: danblackwell467@gmail.com

    Was once dubbed the future of the club but a few failed transfers later and he finds himself back at his boyhood club. A Defensive Midfielder like Nemanja Matic who puts in challenges and starts the attacks. Unlike Matic, Blackwell throws a tantrum mid season every year and has more skills in the locker. 20/21 Season hopes to be a big one for Blackwell who has been putting miles in the bank over summer in a hope to lose the Dad Bod look he managed to gain at 18.

    I started playing hockey in 1986/87 at Castle School in Taunton, initially in goal. During my A Levels I played outfield and then at University at Marjons in Plymouth for their 1st team. After moving to London in 1993 to take up my first job I played for Addiscombe Hockey Club in Croydon until 2006 and then one year for Tonbridge Black Knights Vets team. I moved to Devon in 2007 and due to a back injury and having young children my hockey career was put on hold. After encouragement from my partner to get playing again I joined East Devon Hockey Club in 2017 and have thoroughly enjoyed it - the 10 year break may have helped as my back is fine now! In September 2019 I took on the captaincy of the 5th team and it has been a real pleasure to lead the team over the year. I highly recommend joining East Devon HC, particularly if you are a returner to hockey like I was.
