Canterbury and Reading unbeaten

Canterbury celebrate reaching Hockey 5s final


Canterbury and Reading both have 100 per cent records after day one of the Men’s Super Sixes Indoor Championships at Arena Leisure Village in Kettering on Saturday.

Last season’s beaten finalists, Canterbury top the table on goal difference after beating Beeston 7-1 and Wimbledon 7-6.

Harry Jawanda, Liam Foster and Craig Boyne all scored twice in their win over Beeston, with Ross Gilham-Jones also scoring.

Then in their dramatic 7-6 win over Wimbledon in the day’s final match, Gilham-Jones and Jawanda both bagged another two, Kwan Browne added a brace and Wei Adams also scored.

Reading notched up a 6-5 win over Loughborough in their opening match, before winning 7-5 over Bowdon later in the day.

Loughborough looked to have victory sewn up, but two goals in the final minute from Andy Watts saw Reading snatch victory. Captain Chris Newman had also scored twice in that win, while Peter Kelly and Tom Carson also scored.

Kelly scored a hat-trick in Reading’s win over Bowdon, while other goals came from Watts, Carson, Ben Boon and Jack Smart.

East Grinstead lie third after beating Wimbledon 7-4, then fighting out a dramatic 6-6 draw with Sevenoaks.

Holcombe were beaten 4-6 by Sevenoaks, but then bounced back to beat Loughborough 9-5, while Bowdon began the day well with a 3-0 win over Beeston before their loss to Reading.
