Canterbury looking for turn in fortunes
Canterbury looking for turn in fortunes

After holding local rivals Holcombe to a draw last weekend, Canterbury will be looking to use their improved form to beat second-bottom Bowdon Hightown in the Investec Women’s Hockey League Premier Division on Sunday.

With just two draws and two points to their name so far this season Canterbury are five points adrift at the foot of the table, but a victory on Sunday could ease their worries.

“We’re looking to take the form from the win last weekend and start building a bit of a run,” said Helen Fagg, co-captain of a Canterbury side who have several new young players in the squad as well as a new coach in Australian double Olympic gold medal-winner Kate Starre.

“The table shows that the gap between teams is very thin and anyone can beat anyone else. I don’t think the points we have reflect our performances so far, we’ve been unlucky with some results.”

Holcombe host Slough also at the weekend looking to extend their run of recent decent results.

In the Investec Conference East, second-placed Sevenoaks entertain bottom of the table Chelmsford as they bid to keep pace with the leaders.
