    Callum Duke
    Club Captain

    Motivated, committed and passionate about both hockey and Hillhead Hockey Club. I grew up as a hornet and developed my game through Hillhead Junoir section, before joining the men's club at the age of 13 where I played as part of the Development team (7th XI) and the 2nd XI alongside some of Hillheads biggest legends. I left the hive at the age of 17 to join Edinburgh University, where I studied Civil Engineeing. After University I moved to Germany where I played hockey for SC Frankfurt 1880.
    Since then I have returned to the nest and am proud to be back playing for Hilllhead 1st XI. I am also a current Scottish senior internationalist sponsored by Adidas Hockey.

    Membership Secretary

    I am proud to have been President of Hillhead HC from 2015-2018 and look forward to continuing on the committee as Membership Secretary. Since joining in 1983, I have enjoyed playing and socialising in a club that encourages and facilitates performance development, values good sportsmanship and offers a family friendly environment.

    On the playing side, I managed to clock up 19 seasons for the 1st XI, before finally retiring when we got promoted to NL2 in 2002. I have since enjoyed playing for all of our other teams, including our development team and our Vets. I was honoured to be selected for the Scotland Over 50s squad in 2008 and Over 60s squad in 2018.
    Prior to joining Hillhead, I played for Edinburgh University and Strathclyde University (where I was selected for the Scottish Universities team). I had the benefit of learning to play at Banbridge HC, one of the top Irish clubs.

    I have a strong interest in the development of players and helped to coach our juniors for 15 years, a very rewarding activity. I am particularly proud of introducing my three sons Andrew, Callum and Iain to hockey and have enjoyed seeing them develop and play for the club.

    I acknowledge the tremendous efforts of the many members that have helped the club get to its current status. I have contributed to the management of the club through committee work and liaising with external stakeholders. Having previously held positions as President, team captain and club treasurer, as Membership Secretary I will continue to help Hillhead realise its ambitions in terms of performance and to be recognised as an attractive, reputable and respected club. In doing so, I will seek to ensure there is strong social cohesion within the club and to foster our relationships with our Ladies and Junior clubs, Woodend, other clubs, Scottish Hockey and other relevant organisations.

    Started playing hockey as soon as I could hold a stick. Only ever played for Hillhead and currently play in the ones , defending our goal with every bit of my body. My favourite moments in my history at Hillhead have to be beating Western twice in one season and finally being part of finals day in Edinburgh , not just being there for a booze up !

    I have been playing at Hillhead all my life and never been tempted away. Not for the lack of offers but my heart truly lies as a Hornet. Been playing in the 1st team on/off now for over 10 years and have had the privilege to be captain for a few of these years.

    Greatest moment in Hillhead has to the season when we beat Western twice.
