In this week’s The Hockey Paper there are match reports for Surbiton Ladies’ 4-1 win at home to Canterbury and their 6-1 cup quarter-final win at Slough.

In her column, Surbiton’s Beckie Middleton asks How important is a good captain? and Should we update our leadership approach?

There are previews of England men’s and women’s tours of South Africa; with Surbiton men’s game at Canterbury postponed there’s obviously no match report but the paper looks at How hockey coped with the big freeze.

There’s a review of the Hockey World League Round 2 tournament in Valencia.

The paper can be bought at local newsagents for £1.50.  More information can be found here
