M1 Visit Reading On Saturday Evening
By Colin Pike
Surbiton Men visit Reading for their second Men's Hockey League Premier Division League Finals Pool B match on Saturday (push back 5.30 pm at Sonning Lane).
Surbiton were at Sonning Lane a fortnight ago when they ran out 4-0 winners thanks to two goals from Rob Farrington after Arjan Drayton-Chana and Alex Williams gave them a 2-0 lead.
Reading also lost in the first meeting of the season at Sugden Road in October, Ben Park, Nick Park, Gareth Furlong, and a brace from Luke Taylor helping Surbiton to a 5-2 victory. Toby Heywood-Bourne and Montgomery Neave scored for Reading.
Reading are enjoying their first season back in the Premier Division after spending two seasons in Division One South.
Last weekend, Reading lost 5-0 at Wimbledon on Saturday and Surbiton won 3-2 against Oxted on Sunday.
Wimbledon are at home to Oxted at 6 pm on Saturday.
In Pool A, Holcombe are at home to Beeston and Hampstead & Westminster, the only team to take a point off Old Georgians this season, are at home to the Surrey club, also on Saturday.
In the relegation playoffs, Brooklands Manchester University are already relegated and travel to the University of Exeter, who could be relegated if they lose to Brooklands and the University of Nottingham beat East Grinstead.
