Final day heartbreak
EASTCOTE missed out on promotion on the final day, despite securing victory over PHC Chiswick.
The Boars were 8-2 winners over their west London neighbours, but Ashford thrashed Eastcote’s second string 9-0 to take the title on goal difference.
Four goals from Kevin Haigh, two from Gabriel Emery and one apiece from Mark Allison and David Cooper got the job done against Chiswick before the bad news filtered through.
Meanwhile, Eastcote’s U16s boys were beaten 5-4 on penalty strokes after letting a two-goal lead slip against Indian Gymkhana in the Mercian Home Counties quarter final.
And at the Rover Oxford Festival, there was a runners up place for the hardworking U12s boys side.
