The East Grinstead Men's 1st XI return to Saint Hill for their first home game of the 2018/19 Premier Division. EG had a great start to the season last term, going into November only one point off the top of the league, however minimal availably for their top players after this point, meant they would eventually finish in a respectable 6th place. The Men's 1st XI will be looking to get back into the top 4 after a few seasons of just missing out. Their young squad is constantly improving and with the retention of key players, along with some top quality additions, they will be looking to bring EG back to the top of the Men's game. Beeston will provide a very tough opposition for EG's first home game. They finished 3rd in the league last season, and were unlucky to lose a close game in the play-offs to eventual winners, Surbiton. The squad they will bring to Saint Hill will have a mix of experienced Premier Division players and some top quality youngsters displaying great potential. Supporters will be in for a treat as many international players will be on display for both teams in what is set to be a fiercely competitive and high quality game of hockey at Saint Hill.
Pushback will be at 6pm. Entrance Fees are £4 for adults and U18s go free. 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!
