Sevenoaks looking for morale boosting win

Sevenoaks host East Grinstead in the Men’s Hockey League Premier Division on Saturday, as they aim to lift themselves off the bottom of the table before the Winter break.

With just two points to their name so far, Sevenoaks could climb up to eighth if they can secure a victory and other results go in their favour.

“It is an important game for us,” said Sevenoaks captain Tim Warrington said: “We find ourselves in a pretty nasty position as we head towards the Christmas break and we need to start getting some more points on the board before we get cut adrift at the bottom of the table.

“Over the last couple of weeks most of the teams around us have picked up points, so we need to do the same to put ourselves back amongst the pack.

“We have had a really tough start to the season. Unfortunately we suffered a number of injuries that have meant we’ve struggled to get our best squad out week to week.

“But we’ve been playing some pretty good hockey though and competing well in games, and it feels like we’re not far away from putting it all together and getting a positive result. Hopefully for us that will be this weekend.”

Holcombe will want to hang on to their spot in the top four with a win over visitors Wimbledon on Sunday.
