A day of close-fought victories for Russets' senior Men's sides, but continued frustration for the Ladies, who went down 3-0 at Canterbury.
The Men's 1st XI took three valuable points with a 3-2 victory at Old Williamsonians - while this keeps them in the top half of the table, an extended run of victories is needed to get them into contention at the top of the league.
The 2nd XI eventually prevailed against Blackheath, being pegged back three times before finally sealing a 4-3 victory. Dan Edwards weighed in with another hat-trick, his third of the season.
In a trio of games against Folkestone, the 3rd XI battled hard to grind out a 1-0 victory, with youth to the fore, the 4th XI continued their good run with a 4-2 win to stay top of the league, and the 5ths fell 3-1 to remain bottom of theirs.
Weekly hockey training will start on Tuesday 2nd September at the club's astro, from 7pm to 8.30, with the bar being open to re-hydrate and socialize afterwards. Club training is open to senior players and those youngsters intending to play senior hockey.
Please bring a spare shirt, so that we can easily organize two balanced teams - white &/or yellow and a dark shirt. Also feel free to bring along anyone you know who might be interested in joining us for the new season.
