What's On This Weekend?

The halfway point in the league has been reached in terms of fixtures with Conference teams playing their last round of games prior to the winter break this weekend, whilst Premier Division clubs will also play on the 4/5 December.

Canterbury's Natalie Seymour challenges with Trojan's Heather Batten during their EHL premier League game at Polo Farm, Canterbury, 26th September 2009On Saturday Women’s Premier Division leaders EuroCanterbury travel to Slough who beat them in the first game of the season at Polo Farm. Since then the Kent side have won 7 out of 8 games whilst Slough have been less consistent. Leicester, who are a point behind EuorCanterbury, travel to fourth placed Bowdon Hightown. Third placed University of Birmingham host local rivals Olton who are currently languishing in ninth place. One place below them are Brooklands Poynton who travel to Clifton looking for the three points that could take them off the foot of the table. Reading and Cannock who are just above the bottom two meet at Sonning Lane    

The top game in the Womens’ Conferences sees West leaders Buckingham, who surprisingly lost their unbeaten record at Swansea last Saturday, take on second placed Isca University. East leaders Surbiton play Harleston and North leaders Loughborough Students travel to Springfields UCLAN. 

East Grinstead celebrate a goal at Cannock May 2010Men’s Premier Division leaders East Grinstead face the long trip to Brooklands Poynton whilst second placed Beeston make the short trip to Cannock for a Midlands derby.

The  Surbiton – Bowdon and Loughborough – Reading matches both feature two teams in this group,  the other Hampstead travel to Canterbury who are looking for points to move off the foot of the table.

Team Bath Buccaneers celebrate the winning goal against Brooklands MUMen’s West Conference leaders University of Exeter, who took over at the top last week after defeating Team Bath, host University of Birmingham.  Leek, leaders in the North travel to Harborne and Southgate, the front runners in the East take on Oxted.
