Ash­ford Ladies re­turn to ac­tion with all three teams at home this weekend.

The 3rds take on Sevenoaks 5ths in a Di­vi­sion 2 game, at 1pm. Mean­while, the men’s An­tiques, skip­pered by Harry Pick­er­ing, who cel­e­brates his 70th birth­day next week, face Maid­stone Vets (2.30pm).

The club plan to take two ju­nior teams to Hol­land at Easter, con­tin­u­ing the links forged with Sjin­born Hockey Club near Maas­tricht over the last three years.

First team player El­liot Bing­ham, who is study­ing at a Dutch univer­sity, is ar­rang­ing the tour.

Mean­while, Robert Tay­lor from Tay­lor’s Let­tings, has pre­sented the club’s group of 20 vol­un­teer coaches with spon­sored jack­ets.

The club has seen a big rise in ju­nior play­ers over the past year, es­pe­cially in the un­der-8 and un­der-10 age groups, with more than 200 young­sters now in­volved,

The girls and boys un­der-16 teams and the boys un­der-14s are now among the top teams in the county.
