Your Men’s 1st XI have done some amazing things over recent years but they may just have topped the lot with yesterdays achievement.
Having finished 8th in each of the past 3 seasons in the England Hockey National East Conference Gareth Carr and the boys have now been confirmed as League Champions for 2016 which is simply stunning news for Richmond HC.
Huge credit must go to Gareth Carr and his coaching team of Mark Pearn, Manager Ben Blake and Skipper Charlie Duffell for the superb work over this season and last, continuing the excellent work put in by Soma Singh and Rob Green to get us into the National League a few years back.
The season is however not over yet as winning the league puts us into the play-offs for promotion to the Premier League – more details to come on that in a separate post.
Massive thanks to all those who came to Sevenoaks to support yesterday and throughout the season – it really was special to celebrate victory with so many of you on the sidelines… and we’ll need you even more than ever over the remaining 3 games !
Big thanks also to Lightbulbs-direct.com, The Proshop, TK Hockey and to Etixx UK for their support over the season as well. We simply can’t do this without sponsor support so its great to have you as part of our team.
