Kel­burne aim to hit the ground run­ning

Paisley Daily Express - - Paisley’s Past -

Kel­burne kick-start the new sea­son this af­ter­noon when they travel to Auchen­howie to take on Western Wild­cats.

Kel­burne`s 13-year mo­nop­oly of the ti­tle came to an end last sea­son as the Pais­ley side lost out to Grange for the ti­tle.

Mean­while, Wild­cats are a team on the rise fol­low­ing a suc­cess­ful cam­paign last time out.

This week­end is the first time this sea­son there is a full card of matches in both the men and women`s Na­tional League 1, with sev­eral sides in both com­pe­ti­tions get­ting off the mark.

A Scot­tish Hockey spokesman said: “With the men`s cam­paign barely un­der­way, it is dif­fi­cult to as­sess who will emerge as ti­tle con­tenders, es­pe­cially with the nor­mal move­ment of play­ers be­tween clubs.

“On pa­per the game of the day is at Auchen­howie where Western Wild­cats en­ter­tain Kel­burne.

“Last sea­son the Pais­ley out­fit com­pleted the dou­ble over Wild­cats with 2-0 and 4-1 vic­to­ries in the league.”

In women’s Na­tional League 2, Kel­burne have been handed the week off fol­low­ing a solid start to the sea­son.

The Pais­ley side cur­rently sit third in the ta­ble with one win and one de­feat from the open­ing weeks of the cam­paign.
