Dunfermline City Hockey Club History

Dunfermline City HC- A brief history

Dunfermline City HC was formed in April 2010 with the purpose of promoting and providing hockey and other sporting activities within the local and wider community.
In the clubs first season, we won the league title and secured promotion without drawing or losing a game and reached the semi final of a national cup competition. 

Off the pitch, we took to the water to raise money for CHSS in their raft race raising over £1300 in the process. 

In our second season as a club we experienced a large increase in our membership mainly due to people of all ages and abilities participating in our various club run coaching sessions, this in turn led to the creation of our 2nd XI who also play league hockey. 

Our second season saw our 1st XI win another league title and promotion with our newly formed 2nd XI finishing mid table in their debut season.  The 1st XI also won our now annual tournament which we host, inviting clubs from around Scotland to participate. 

Off the park, the club raised £1000 for a local charity through a sports dinner and gained ClubFife accreditation. 

Our 3rd Season saw our 1st XI finish runners up in the league, securing promotion to East Division 1 whilst our 2nd XI again finished in a respectable mid table position. 

In season 2013/14  Dunfermline City consolidated their position in East League division 1 while the two finished mid tabled in Division 3. 
 
Off the park, the club gained charity status becoming only one of two clubs to achieve this status.
 
Going forward, the club is looking to increase its community coaching sessions and in turn attract more people to get involved in sport.  The club is also looking to increase its number of coaches and volunteers as well as train and provide officials for the sport of hockey.
