Dear players, coaches, managers and supporters,
Well done at the terrific achievement in reaching a national final at the first attempt.
Crawley HC is immensely proud of all your efforts and especially so with a team spanning four decades!
The match was played in good spirit, thrilling to watch and for 50 minutes Crawley competed with Nottingham University both in skill and resolve.
It was end to end stuff, the crowd vocal and out of their seats, with more tension and excitement than the later international.
The loss of Justin in defence for the last 20 minutes changed the shape of our team, and then loss of possession and young legs prevailed.
The score line is no disgrace and flatters the winners as the goals came in the final quarter.
A huge thank you to all involved. Hockey is the winner.
Enjoy a summer break.
