Douglas Park BMW agree three year sponsorship of schools hockey programme

Uddingston Hockey Club are delighted to announce they have agreed a three-year sponsorship agreement with local business Douglas Park BMW who will come on board as the lead sponsor of their in-school coaching programme.

This programme currently consists of four full time club coaches going out into the community and carrying out taster sessions across various schools with different classes being included each term with the aim of establishing lunch and afterschool clubs within each school.

This agreement with Douglas Park BMW has allowed the club to expand the programme to include 15 primary and 5 secondary schools from South & North Lanarkshire and the East end of Glasgow to take part within the programme with over 18,000 different children being given taster sessions over the full school year.


The first term August to October of the Douglas Park in-school programme is now complete and has got off to a flying start with the focus being on primary 5 to 7 and 1st Year within secondary schools that has seen the establishment 32 lunch / afterschool clubs with numbers attending ranging from 25 to 70 pupils per club with attendance only limited at times by the schools own facilities.

This fantastic agreement with Douglas Park BMW has also allowed the club to offer the chance for each school to utilise our world class hockey pitch based at our grounds in Uddingston.   All schools now have the option to utilise the clubs own facility for in-school taster sessions or to hold after school clubs at the facility with coaching and transport being proved to not only enhance the quality of the experience and coaching but also to allow the pupils to see the facility they would attend if they decided to then progress from school clubs to Uddingston Hockey Clubs own youth coaching sessions on a Tuesday or a Thursday 6 to 8pm.


The second term October to December will also see the beginning of inter-school matches for primary 6 & 7 children where excitement will be at an all time high as schools look to play head to head to be crowned the top school within the programme.  The programme will also be continuing with the renowned school festivals for primary 4 & 5 where more than 500 children take part over the 3-day festival.

Uddingston Hockey Club would like to thank Douglas Park BMW for their support, without whom, they could not deliver such an extensive and rewarding programme, encouraging not just participation in the sport but also promoting an active lifestyle and social interactions across the community.

UC&SC Development Project - Final Phase Rugby Works

In line with the overall project programme the final phase of the works are taking place over the summer to improve our Rugby facilities after the hockey pitch was completed in October last year and the cricket nets were completed in April this year plus various facility upgrades such as fences, car park extensions and paths etc.


In the first half of this year UC&SC have been working hand in hand with URFC to agree and progress upgrade works, which due to receiving planning permission for the Rugby pitch floodlights in mid July has allowed us to  now kick things off fully with view of completing all works before the dark nights come in.


The works have been split into two phases consisting of facility upgrade (July / August) and floodlights (Aug / Sep) due to lead in time on approvals and equipment with the plan for all works to be completed by the end of September.


A) Phase one facility upgrade works consists of the following:

- New goal posts
- Path extended to access pitch and green container
- Tarmac area added to front of container
- Lighting and power added to inside and outside of container
- Two 7 foot Boot cleaners and drinking fountain added to area in front of green container
- Litter bins added to facility entrance / exit
- Pitch levelled, holes filled and bumps flattened.
- Pitch widened and lengthened
- Pitch and training area seeded and fertilised


B) Phase two floodlight works consist of the following:

- Senior pitch floodlights added
- Senior pitch and training area lights zoned to give three illuminated areas
- Lighting controls added at entrance to rugby facility instead of hockey pitch


Overall these final development works will have seen every section and member benefit from our vastly improved facilities with the club delivering all works within agreed budgets so please let's all look after them fully.
