Hockey 5s Final Preview: East Grinstead

EG celebrate Hockey 5s semi final win

Everyone knows about the East Grinstead men’s side when it comes to the indoor form of the game, but now, in only their second season in the top flight the women have muscled their way onto centre stage.
Having narrowly missed out on the semi-finals last year they made sure of their place in the final four with a thumping 7-3 win over Sutton Coldfield in their final game of the qualifying stage, before narrowly seeing off Slough in the semi-finals by a Sophie Bray goal to nil.

Now, with England duo Kirsty Mackay and 12-goal Sophie Bray in great form alongside the likes of skipper JoJo Davis and Pippa Rabey, the Sussex side are daring to dream of a first Hockey 5s title.

JoJo Davis, East Grinstead Captain:

“We fancy ourselves in the final we’re quietly confident in our abilities. We’re a squad and we don’t depend on one or two players we are a unit and we rotate the players regularly and it’s a squad performance that we thrive on.”
