Hockering Ladies secure promotion

Hockering Ladies played their final match of the 2010/2011 season on Sunday with promotion already in the bag.

After a shaky end to the 2009/2010 season, the remaining Hockering Ladies continued to build a friendly, united squad that was welcoming and accessible to all.

After a marathon recruitment drive during the summer of 2010 and change of coaching staff, pre-season training was looking really positive. This carried over to the start of the season with Hockering Ladies winning seven of their first nine games with the most impressive scoreline standing at 18-0.

The second half of the season was to be more of a battle for the ladies and the pressure of being top of the table for so long began to tell. But the strong team work ethic and positive attitude was buoyed with many outstanding debut performances coming from ladies with little or no previous experience.

The team pulled together and pulled the results out of the bag when it mattered the most.

The Ladies finished their season with a 3-0 win against a much improved and hard working Freethopre side followed by a few glasses of champagne to celebrate promotion to Division One.
