Following last Sunday (September 16th) and the visit from BBC South East, to coincide with Junior training, the club has now featured on BBC TV on Thursday evening. A great feature involving Sophie Bray, Men's 1st Team Captain Simon Faulkner and Ladies 1st Team player Jojo Blunt did a great job of raising the profile of the sport and of course of our club. Read on for more including how you can see the video if you missed it and also when you can see our 1st Teams in Action !
She's the sharp-shooter, nick-named the "baby faced assassin"... Sophie Bray is back playing for East Grinstead...BBC South East, 2018
On Sunday 16th, the Juniors were treated to coaching by members of both our Mens and Ladies' 1st Teams. With the rise of several teams in the South East its great to see the sport being featured and especially across Ladies and Mens 1st Teams as well as our Juniors.
Simon Faulkner talked about that rise of local friends Sevenoaks, Holcombe and long time top tier friends Canterbury. Sophie talked about why she returned to England and EG, and Jojo Blunt talked about the opportunities that will emerge for developing stars in coming seasons.
BOTH EG Ladies and Mens 1st Teams open their HOME League programmes on Saturday September 29th. Both sides will welcome Beeston Hockey Club from Nottinghamshire. The Ladies will play at 16:00 and the Men will follow at 18:00. Beeston Ladies a were promoted into the Premier League last season so this will be their second match at this level. Matches between EG Men and Beeston Men have often been close affairs and this is likely to be so. Entry is free for U18s and ticketed for Adults.
