CANTERBURY ladies HOCKEY CLUB
Early season photo
2As – East Div 2 South East
FINAL LEAGUE POSITION: 6 out of 12
We had a good season overall. There were losses and draws but enough wins to keep us securely in the Division 2 SE league for another season. We actually finished 6th, leaving us happily in the mid table, which was a pretty fair reflection of our overall performances.
We started well with two solid wins against Thurrock and Gore Court, followed by two draws against Burnt Ash and Holcombe. After that we seemed to alternate between winning and losing until ending the first half of the season on a draw.
After Christmas, we followed a similar format with a variety of wins, losses and draws. We had a core group of regular and committed players, but we were also able to give some of the 3's the opportunity to step up and show off their developing skills. It was a privilege to captain such a great group of ladies. There was always lots of laughter and everyone displayed great sportsmanship which reflects our club and its values. Thank you to all who have Contributed to the 2a's season.

2As – East Div 1 South
FINAL LEAGUE POSITION: 8 out of 12
A long season came to an abrupt ending with our great fighting team being relegated. The season brought with it a lot of problems and with a different team every week as we struggled to create good performances week in week out. The core of team worked really hard against top opposition which were mostly 1st teams, to show some potential and even winning some games and holding some very good teams to a draw, pleasing for us, not so much for them.
Thank you to all those who played, all those who drove and all who helped organise.
Roll on next season, new League, new venues, new pitches, new and old players and maybe a few more people old enough to drive!!
