PILGRIMS – South Hockey League – Kent/Sussex Regional 1
FINAL LEAGUE POSITION: 7 out of 12
A poor start saw the Grims performance put unnecessary relegation pressure on themselves at the turn of the year, however this galvanised their second half run and stability in selection and a good team spirit saw them mid table in what is a very strong league. Well done.
Invidious though it is to single out anyone but Johnny Webb departs the team and the club for an upward career move. A committee member also he has been a loyal and unassuming stalwart of the Grims and Club for the last 4/5 years and will be sadly missed. We wish him all the very best as he and his family head off westwards. Stay in touch Johnny - you are always welcome at Polo.
PILGRIMS – South Hockey League – Kent/Sussex Regional 2
FINAL LEAGUE POSITION: 2 out of 12
Could be argued that they were unlucky not to be team of the season! The selection committee at the start of the season made the conscious decision to make every effort to get the Grims promoted out of the same League as the 3s without the 3s being relegated. Both strategies worked and Mat Lea as Grims skipper deserves congratulating on both skippering the team with single minded purpose and despite a 6 week lay off with a broken ankle still managed to end the season as leading goal scorer.
