The Men’s 1st XI

Mens’ 1st XI

OMT Men’s 1st XI

The OMT Hockey Club men’s 1st team play their hockey in MBBO Regional 1 following a run of promotions in the late 00’s. Since then the team have established themselves as a constant within that league, finishing 5th out of 14 teams in the 2018/19 season, losing only 1 game at home. With David Cooper as Player-Coach who will be working alongside Nick Koo for the 2019/20 season, the team are hoping to build on the foundations set in recent seasons, to establish themselves as an even bigger force within the league and push for promotion in the next few years.
