Big weekend for Kent’s sides
Big weekend for Kent’s sides

After their EuroHockey League battles last weekend, Wimbledon return to action in the Men’s Hockey League Premier Division with a tough clash against top of the table Holcombe on Sunday.

Currently bottom of the early table, Wimbledon narrowly missed out on progressing in Europe but will now turn their attentions to the domestic league.

“The key thing for us is that we were really pleased with our performance at the EHL even though we didn’t progress,” said Wimbledon’s Team Manager Tina Dullaghan. “We have to use that as a platform moving forward to the league program.

“Holcombe are a tough team to play against, but we’re confident. We know what we need to do to get into the top four at the end of the season; last year we won our last 12 games, so we know we can do it.”

Meanwhile, Hampstead and Westminster head to Sevenoaks as they bid to make it four out of four in the Premier Division.
