Holcombe Ladies are third in the Investec Women’s Hockey League Premier Division after a 3-0 home triumph over mid table Clifton Robinsons.

The points were secured nine minutes after the interval, Dirkie Chamberlain’s third goal in as many games wrapping up the win.

Bottom club Canterbury are now unbeaten in four games after they came from behind to secure a 1-1 draw at home to Leicester.

Rachel Mack put the visitors ahead after a quarter of an hour, but Sarah Kerly’s fourth of the season ensured the points were shared.

Sevenoaks moved level on points with leaders Hampstead & Westminster in the Investec Conference East after a 5-1 victory at Barnes.

Hampstead’s home game against Bedford was called off, but they remain top on goal difference with a perfect nine wins from nine so far this term.
