The penultimate weekend of March proved to be a glorious one for the Sidmouth and Ottery Hockey Club, writes Stephen Birley.

The SOHC 5th team sealed the Davis Wood Hockey League South East Division Three title with a 4-0 victory over in-house colleagues SOHC 6ths with Dan Vincent and Steve Ellison both netting twice.

It means that at the end of the very first season for the club that began its life late last summer, there’s silverware for the trophy cabinet!

As well as the 5th team’s glorious result there was a hugely important 6-2 win for the Ladies 2nd XI who bagged a 6-1 triumph at Dawlish and that secures their presence for another season in the Petroc 1 division.

With last weekend being seeing the close of the Men’s League season, attention turns to the off pitch award and the club is holding its Seniors Awards Night tomorrow (March 23) at The Fortfield, Sidmouth, from 7pm.

Looking slightly further ahead, the club’s Dinner and Dance is set for the splendid surrounds of Sandy Park and tickets are now available for what should be a special evening.
