The hockey section of the Club secured their league title as champions last Saturday, and in doing so, secured their first ‘league’ promotion in 23 years!
The last game of the season took place at the same time as an end of season grass tournament held at the Club. In total there were six teams playing on two grass pitches: Kenley, Wallington, Tonbridge/Tunbridge Wells, BA Lions, Wimbledonians and Purley Sports Club.
The end of season 2022 tournament came down to a final with Purley XI v BA Lions (a BA and Sunbury mixed team). After a tense, closely fought game it was 0-0 at full time and reverted to penalty flicks. Purley lost 5-3 for BA Lions to win the coveted Purley Grass Lion Hockey Trophy.
Next week the Hockey Section have been invited to tour teams in Belfast and Dublin.
