Leek Hockey Club will be celebrating its centenary this September. The North Staffordshire club was formed in 1922 and has always been a successful family friendly club.  

Over the years it was predominately a men’s club, but 25 years ago the club combined with the newly formed Leek Ladies. It now runs six senior mens, four senior women, as well as juniors, mixed and Masters teams, with over 300 members.  

Success has come and gone over the years, while the club currently have both 1st teams just outside of the National League structure.  

The club is looking to get in touch with past members and associates of the club. As part of the celebrations the club will be holding a charity auction and raising money for Alzheimer’s Research UK, in support of life member Imran Sherwani.

In its heyday Leek men spent 14 years in the National League under the guidance of GB Olympic gold medalist Sherwani.

Since the announcement of Imran’s diagnosis with early-onset Alzheimer’s the club have been working with him and his family and have raised over £1,600 in support of Alzheimer’s Research UK.  

The club said: “Imran and his family have had a long relationship with Leek Hockey Club and have always enjoyed its warm, friendly and sociable atmosphere.  All being well, we look forward to welcoming Imran back to the Club’s Centenary Dinner and celebrating another ‘legendary’ night at the club.”
