Welcome to the Westminster Statesmen
We are non checking recreational ice hockey team based out of Alexandra Palace in North London, England.
We are a long established club having played recreational hockey since 1989, the name originally came from the founders of the team which comprised of players from BT 'Westminster' the area and 'Statesmen' the latest phone (which by today's standards wasn't that good).
We're a social bunch and have an ethos of trying to play good hockey but importantly having fun and enjoying a beer when the occasion permits.
If you're interested in playing for us then please see the contact us section. Please note that there is an EIHA insurance condition that NO unregistered players will be able to ice without prior consent from the team management. Please contact us to arrange a try out before turning up. If you're just dropping by, then feel free to browse.

MK Jesters are normally a well organised team, and this occasion was no different as they fielded a large bench. By contrast, the Statesmen displayed their customarily ramshackled approach to start times (4.15, oh you mean the game starts at 4.15). The game started out evenly, with both sides picking up a goal and penalty a piece in the first period. The Statesmen's lethargic approach culimated in a series of minor penalties, which the Jesters took full advantage of to take a narrow lead, going into the third period 2-1. An inspirational speech by currently crocked coach George (thumb) finally persuaded the Statesmen to pick their game up. The continental line of Gion-men, Florent and Juho duly made its impact felt as the Statesmen took control of the game eventually run out winners 7-3. MOTM - returning goalie Ben.
