MATT JONES has called on hockey’s governing body to stop punishing East Grinstead for being successful. Just seven days after winning the national indoor title for a record
seventh year in a row, Grinstead were forced to resume their outdoor campaign – a week before any of their title rivals.

They must now squeeze in a top-two clash away to Surbiton on Sunday before returning to the indoor code when they represent England in Europe in just ten days’ time.

EAST Grinstead manager Matt Jones admits it is difficult to appreciate the magnitude of his club's success after landing a seventh successive men's national indoor title.  The untouchables of English indoor hockey stretched their existing record of back-to-back crowns after another memorable day in the Hockey 5s Championships finals at the SSE Arena, Wembley.

 

As well as seven on the trot, Grinstead have also set a new record of ten titles overall.  It is a period of dominance rarely seen at the highest level of any sport.  To put it into context, it would take eight years just to improve on the new landmark Grinstead have set – and that is not taking into account the fact that the club have already outlined a target of making it eight in a row next year.

A quick-fire hat-trick from Chris Griffiths helped East Grinstead to a seventh consecutive Hockey 5s title, but they were pushed all the way by a fighting display from Canterbury. In a repeat of last year's final, the crowd were left on the edge of their seats right up until the last moment of a pulsating encounter.

The first half was an even affair with an array of outstanding close skills on display from both sides. East Grinstead found themselves a player light early on as Glenn Kirkham was green carded for a foul on Liam Foster but despite the man advantage the scores remained level. Back up to a full side, the Sussex outfit took the lead through a Niall Stott penalty corner.
