JO FIRTH WINS GOLD WITH SOUTH OVER 50S
By Colin Pike
Surbiton legend Jo Firth has won another title in her illustrious hockey career after helping the South of England Over 50s team lift the national trophy at Olton & West Warwicks HC last weekend.
In spite of losing their first match 1-0 to the Midlands, the South responded in the best possible way, beating the West 2-0 in their second game.
Another 2-0 win against the North left the South needing to beat the East by four goals to win the title and they went one better, winning 5-0 to become national regional champions.
