Some exciting new additions have arrived pitchside at Surbiton HC this week in advance of the upcoming EuroHockey Club Cup.

Tournament sponsors Kingspan have paid for two state of the art ERMA Sports of the Netherlands dugouts, each with ten seats, enclosed kit storage space and a spray curtain.

Meanwhile, match officials will no doubt be delighted with the brand new secure and enclosed Mark Harrod Ltd technical shelter, which has been installed on the halfway line.

EHCC officials and the eight competing teams, plus the semi finalists in the Under 14 EHCC, will be the first to make use of the new facilities in competition, but this will provide a fantastic pitchside legacy for the use of all Surbiton HC members in the upcoming seasons.

Huge thanks must go to Kingspan for their generosity in providing the club with such a professional set of pitchside facilities and to all those at SHC who have helped with design and installation.
