Ladies 1st XI Win West Premier One League Sunday, April 6, 2008Posted by becky in Cheltenham Hockey, Club News, Ladies 1st XI, Match Report.
A 0-0 draw against second place Team Bath confirmed the ladies 1’s as Champions of West Premier One. Lansdown were expecting Bath to come out all guns blazing as they needed to win by 4 clear goals to take the title but a determined performance by every player in the squad kept Bath hoping for goals rather than creating clear cut chances. A very proud day for the ladies 1’s and for Lansdown Hockey Club. Thank you to everyone who came to cheer us on – the atmosphere was excellent and it was great to share our league win with you all.
Next stop is the playoffs to try and gain National League status. We have a home fixture on Sunday 20 April against Springfield UCLAN, an away fixture against Southgate on Sunday 27 April and then 3 games over the Bank Holiday weekend at the University of West England, Bristol. Full details of times etc will follow.
