On Sunday 18th November the Men's 1st XI will host Hampstead & Westminster at Saint Hill in the Men's Premier Division. EG played H&W in their last home game before the indoor season last year and the game was a fierce battle, East Grinstead winning 1-0 after a Simon Faulkner field goal. EG managed to keep a clean sheet, after defending many late Penalty Corners from H&W, Highlights of that game can be found here via Galvanised Hockey. Hampstead & Westminster had a great campaign last year, they managed to get into the top 4 and get to the Play-Off Final. They were minutes away from winning the final if it wasn't for a late goal from Surbiton, who then went on to win the Shootout. H&W will be disappointed to have not made the EHL last year and will be looking to put that right this season. Supporters can expect to see experienced internationals (past and present) on both sides lock horns, in yet another battle between these high quality teams.
Pushback will be at 2pm. Home matches are ticketed 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!
