How it all began...

As you are probably aware the Anchorians HC has been an established hockey club since 1954. Our earliest photograph dates back to the 1956 - 1957 season. The Mens 1st XI were quite successful this year recording results as follows:

Played 28, Won 19, Lost 7, Drew 2.

They also recorded an incredible 110 goals, whilst only conceding 50. Great effort guys!

The next closest photo of an Anchorians Mens 1st XI takes us to 1967. This team was equally as impressive recording results as follows:

Played 25, Won 14, Lost 6, Drew 5.

They also recorded a respectable tally of 70 goals, whilst only conceding 34. Another great effort!
