The East Grinstead Ladies 1st XI return to Saint Hill for their first home game of the 2018/19 Investec Premier Division. EG experienced a successful campaign last year, finishing 3rd and narrowly missing out on reaching the Play-off final after a narrow defeat to Holcombe. The Ladies 1st XI will be looking to push further up the table in the 2018/19 season, and will be fighting to secure their first Investec Premier Division Title. However, the newly promoted Beeston will provide a tough test. This season, Beeston will be one of the four clubs with teams in both Men's and Ladies Premier Divisions. Beeston have been dominating the Conference North for a few seasons now, having finally made the breakthrough to the Investec Premier Division, after performing well in the Play-offs. Despite this being their debut season in the Premier Division, Beeston boast a squad full of players with international experience. This seasons 'Curtain-Raiser' at Saint Hill will be an exciting one for both sets of supporters, but also an intriguing one for the neutrals.
There will be a 10 minute Half-Time break in which kids are encouraged to use the pitch to practice and shoot at goal. The supporters are encouraged to ask their favourite players for their autographs after the match as they are leaving the pitch. We would like to wish all supporters a warm welcome at Saint Hill and hope you enjoy the match!
