AEHC players rally to support a member of the ‘Hockey Family’

AEHC Mens 5s Captain, Jon Talbot, handed over a cheque for £250 when his team took on Denbigh in North West division 5 this weekend. The cheque was to support Denbigh club member Ben Rawson’s crowdfunding efforts to buy the best possible prosthetic leg following his diagnosis with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer which will result in him losing his left leg in order to optimise his chances of survival. Aged just 21, Ben has completed six cycles of pre-operative chemotherapy and faces more treatment in Wales and at Manchester’s Christie Hospital following his amputation. His friends and family have now set up a campaign to focus on securing him the best possible prosthetic limb which will hopefully ultimately result in Ben being able to get back to competitive hockey and university. To find out more about Ben’s story and donate please go to https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/ben-rawson      See full story...

Game, Set and - nearly - Match for AECC Tennis

Main Image
You know that feeling....you are in the final set against an opponent you would love to beat. You only need to win your serve to go on and win....you want to be in the club house being gracious in victory but to get there you just have to hold your nerve and serve out. That is where we are at with the AECC Grass Courts Conversion Project. We are very close to victory, which means, in the short term, getting the go-ahead to tender the work. Everything is going our way but we just need to keep our concentration and haul ourselves over the finish line. We wanted to communicate the good news to all tennis members with an update on where we are with the project and offer a tantalising glimpse of the transformed club we could be enjoying as early as next season. Where we have five largely redundant grass courts there will be five newly installed artificial clay courts and state of the art floodlights on a further five courts.      See full story...
