Banbury 4s - 1 Thame 2s - 1
It’s Thame - so you’re going to get a mix and style of hockey that’s reminiscent of a fusion of the Tourette’s Society Morris Dancing Club and Rural Cage Fighting - stick tackling and four letter infused banter being their forte. Plus it was about time I got hit again as it was 6 years ago a Thame player created a ...
Banbury 4s - 2 Leighton Buzzard 3s - 2
It was Van Dyke School, Leighton Buzzard (LB) in the grey cold drizzle but the hockey played by Banbury in the second half would’ve made Van Dyck (the 16th century painter) blush. The LBHC pitch is actually at Van Dyke School - but the only Van Dyke I know is Dick van Dyke (the world’s worst cockney of Mary ...
Slough 3’s 1 Banbury Piranhas 3
One of this seasons youngest Piranhas sides traveled down to play a Slough side sitting third in the table.

Bicester 1 Banbury 5
The heat was on for this proverbial relegation 6 pointer as the Piranhas visited Chris Paige’s (aka the Scythe) Bicester III’s.

Banbury Piranhas - 2 Bicester 3’s - 0
The Piranhas side certainly had a different feel about it this week as 5 of the regular Piranhas along with Captain Allman had been sent to West Hampstead to play for Banbury 3's. Please don’t confuse West Hampstead with Coventry as the “lended” Piranha players certainly enjoyed the match and their time at the ...
Banbury Piranhas - 3 Newbury & Thatcham 5’s - 1
This week saw the Piranhas facing Newbury & Thatcham 5’s. The opposition were relatively unknown to the Piranhas as they were newly promoted into MBBO 7 last year along with their 4th team as well.

Banbury Piranhas - 3 Gerrards Cross 3’s - 1
Saturdays match was another must win against relegation rivals Gerrard’s Cross. Despite the regulation last minute team changes, the Piranhas had secured a strong squad of 12. Clarky did his best to reduce the numbers by one after testing out Westy’s new glove with a misdirected shot during the warm up, ...
