Men's EH Vase and Ladies Vets action this Sunday

By Ruth Crawford

Sunday sees the men take on Old Reigatians in round 2 of their national knockout competition, followed by the ladies in South Masters League action

Basingstoke are in second round action in the England Hockey Now: Pensions Vase against Old Reigatian at Down Grange this Sunday (11.15).

The boys thoroughly enjoyed their cup run to the semi-final stage last season and are looking to extend their stay in this year's competition with a win this weekend.

After securing a home draw and playing league hockey at a level above their visitors, the boys will be seen as the favourites on paper, but, are not taking anything for granted.

"Old Reigatian play their League hockey in Surrey Division 2 and will be out for giant killing in a match up where they have nothing to lose" said captain Adam Smith, "so we will need to be ready and on our game to make sure we safely negotiate our way to round three. The game is scheduled to start at 11.15 so please do come down and support the lads as they look to continue this seasons good form and hope to replicate last season’s cup run".

After the men's game, the ladies take on Wycombe in the South Masters League. The ladies' only previous league fixture was an excellent home 4-2 win against Staines, who subsequently beat Haslemere by a whopping 15-1 to add to their 5-0 win at home to East Grinstead. Wycombe are currently also on three points, courtesy of a walkover victory, so both teams will be looking to make progress up the table.
