2. League Hockey
The adult league season kicked off on Saturday with eight club teams in action. Pride of place in week one goes to the Men’s 1s, who secured an outstanding win away to City of Peterborough 1 – 0. A new look Men’s 3s secured a great draw at home to Norwich Dragons but there were defeats for Men’s 2s at home to Magpies and Men’s 4s away at Sudbury. The men’s 5s will have to wait for their first taste of league action after Newmarket conceded.
A below strength Women’s 1s were well beaten at Bishops Stortford, one of the fancied teams in East Prem whilst the 2s lost a tight derby game at home to Ipswich. The 3s lost at Castaways whilst sadly we couldn’t field a Women’s 4s team this week.
