Olivia Chilton Joins L1

Surbiton Ladies have made their second signing of the summer, welcoming Olivia Chilton to Sugden Road from the University of Birmingham. Chilton follows Robyn Collins, who joined the Elmbridge based club from Beeston, on Monday. Chilton, 20 years old has played for England at Under-16, Under-18 and Under-21 levels, and is a former pupil of Reed’s School, playing for Teddington before joining the University of Birmingham. Whilst on campus in the West Midlands, Chilton was a member of two BUCS final winning teams, and helped her University’s first team become established in the Investec Women’s Hockey League Premier Division. Chilton won a bronze medal with Great Britain’s Under-21 team at the Australian Youth Olympic Festival in Sydney in 2013. In the same year, she just missed out on a medal with England’s Under-21 team at the World Cup in Moenchengladbach, losing out on penalty strokes to India in the bronze medal match. Surbiton Head Coach, Brett Garrard said: “We are delighted to welcome Olivia to Surbiton. Olivia’s experience of playing in the top flight of English hockey, plus her junior international experience with both England and Great Britain will help us as we aim to once again defend our domestic league and cup titles, and challenge in Europe.” On the prospect of joining the reigning Investec Women’s Hockey League Premier Division and Investec Women’s Cup champions, Chilton said: “I...

EuroBlow For Scotland and Surbiton

Scotland did not publicly announce their EuroHockey championships squad for this weekend until very late, on Tuesday (14 July) in fact, only four days before their tournament was due to start in Prague. When they finally did so, the selected 18 included as expected all three of Surbiton Men’s 1st XI current Scottish international players – Alan Forsyth, Chris Grassick and William Marshall – with Grassick as captain. By then they were already in Katowice where they gave their prospects a boost by beating tournament opponents Poland, ten places above them in the world rankings, by 2-1 in the first of a two-Test warm-up series that Tuesday evening. But things took a turn for the worse the next evening (Wednesday 15 July) when Willie Marshall broke a leg as they went down 4-3 (with Forsyth scoring their second goal). After a long train journey the next day the 27th-ranked Scots finally reached the Czech capital where the EuroHockey Championship II is being held from tomorrow (Saturday 18 July) to Sunday week (26 July). Here they will face Poland again (WR17) on Sunday 19, before Croatia (WR46) on Monday 20 and Ukraine (WR24) on Wednesday 22 in Pool A of the competition. Hosts the Czech Republic (WR23), Austria (WR22), Azerbaijan (WR28) and Switzerland (WR33) make up the teams participating in Pool B. The crossover games are on Friday 24 and...

EuroBoost For M1 Welsh Quartet

All four of Surbiton Men’s 1st XI’s current Welsh internationals have been selected in the country’s 18-strong squad for the EuroHockey Championships III being held in Portugal from this Sunday (19 July), finishing on Saturday (25 July). And it will also be an extra significant occasion for Rupert Shipperley’s three club mates. Stephen Kelly will be playing his first international tournament; while David Kettle – in line to win his 50th cap during it – and Lewis Prosser  have been appointed as two of the squad’s three new Australian-style “leadership trio” joint captains. The whole squad also received a massive boost when their 36th world-ranked country waltzed to a 2-1 Test series win against Austria (WR 22) in Vienna this past weekend. Kettle was captain for the first two games and Prosser, recovering from injury, emulated proud father David, captaining the squad in the third game. Wales started on Friday evening (10 July) with a 3-2 victory thanks to a penalty stroke two minutes from time (the games being played over two 35-minute halves). Highlight from a Surbiton point of view was Prosser being subbed on after 12 minutes for his first game since a back injury picked up in training at the end of May. The next afternoon (Saturday 11 July) Wales extended the margin over their world 14-places-higher-ranked opponents to a 4-2 win. Again they did so playing...
