Founded in 2008 by Danny Haydon with the vision that the Men’s league had become lop-sided, and in the spirit of competition, NYCFHC was born from the merger of a number of players from Greenwich Men’s 1st and 3rd Teams; replacing Greenwich III in the league.
Along with founding members Tom Sheridan, Steven Van der Voort, Rob Parker, Simon Gittins, Carey Fetting-Smith, Dave Jannuzzi and Todd Portsmore with grateful thanks to Greenwich and the NEFHA league for facilitating and allowing this venture to occur, NYCFHC is firmly established with competitive Men’s and Women’s teams in the NEFHA league.
NYCFHC Men are currently Playoff Champions for the last 2 seasons and NYCFHC Ladies won the Playoff Championship in 2012 and 2013.
