Suffolk Cup 2016 – Ladies Emerge Victorious

Posted Posted in Club News, Ladies, Results

Suffolk Cup Competition – Sunday 4th September, Culford School (Bury St Edmunds HC home ground)
After an inspiring Olympic win from the GB Ladies Hockey Team, Newmarket Ladies’ 1s got their first ‘gold’ of the season with a tournament win in the Suffolk Cup competition. After a very successful pre-season campaign, the team now head confidently into the new season. Playing five teams from around the County, Newmarket were relatively unknown to their opposition – however, the side managed four wins and a draw to take the tournament top spot. Results were convincing as they won 6-0 against both Ipswich East Suffolk and Ipswich Hockey Club.There was also a 3-0 win against Framlingham Ladies and 3-1 against Felixstowe Ladies. The drawing match was against Bury St Edmunds Ladies, where Newmarket were dominant throughout and managed to score shortly after half time. On the final whistle Bury were awarded a short corner and produced an incredible drag flick goal in to the top left hand corner to get a share of the points. With the season starting on the 17th September the team are excited to be pushing for a top four league finish. Anyone who is interested in supporting, playing or getting involved with the club should please go to www.newmarkethockeyclub.com for more information.
