First Team Doubleheader At Holcombe On Saturday

Both Surbiton first teams make the trip to Kent on Saturday for a doubleheader with Holcombe. Surbiton Ladies play at 4 pm with Surbiton Men following on at 6 pm at Holcombe Park.

More information about the location including a map can be found here Holcombe face Surbiton Ladies as Investec Women’s Hockey League Premier Division leaders after Surbiton dropped to third after last week’s defeat at the University of Birmingham. With just three points separating the top seven teams, the order could change again after Saturday’s matches, Holcombe leading by a single point from Slough, Surbiton and East Grinstead.

A second goalless draw at Buckingham was followed by a 1-0 home win over Bowdon Hightown last weekend. Dirkie Chamberlain scored the only goal but will be in Egypt to play for South Africa in the African Cup of Nations starting on Sunday. Ellie Watton, Leah Wilkinson and Steph Elliott were Holcombe’s scorers at home to Birmingham, with Llly Owsley the only player to have breached the Holcombe defence, which has claimed three clean sheets out of four so far this season. Surbiton will go...
