Felixstowe Hockey Club’s double success
History has been made as both Felixstowe Hockey Club’s men’s and ladies teams have been crowned champions of their respective leagues.
The usual hockey league season runs from October – March but a ‘summer league’ is set up throughout the summer months, and both teams came top of their groups after a winning campaign.
The ladies team capped off a winning run with a 4-2 win against second-placed Christchurch, while the men’s team won every game in their league to be crowned runaway winners.
John Bax, chairman of the club said: “This is their first time that Felixstowe has ever had both men’s and ladies champions and this is testament to how hard the team works and the spirit and tenacity that they have put in over the last 12 weeks, despite the scorching hot weather at times.
“This gives us a great platform to build on for the season which starts in September.”
