'Find me any university sports team that is more successful than UOBHC. Their achievements, both on the university front and international representation, say it all. UOBHC is the only university side that plays in the Premiership and quite simply, it was an absolute no brainer for DBA to partner with such a talented group of girls, students and athletes.
I'v always been involved with team sports so I cannot wait to go and support the team at their Wednesday BUCS games and weekend league matches. However, i'll definitely have to be a neutral supporter when they play Holcombe in the league as our other fantastic hockey ambassador, Maddie Hinch, is Holcombe's GK!
