Saturday 11th & Sunday 12th May 2019
Lincolnshire Hockey, along with the Lindum Sports Association and Lindum Hockey Club, are hosting Pool 2 of the England Hockey County Championship top Division A at the Lindum Sports Club on the above weekend. It is a great honour that we have been asked to hold the championship again this year, having last held it very successfully in 2014, just after the Lindum pitch was opened. England Hockey invested a considerable sum of money along with Sport England and other benefactors to put down the Artificial Grass Pitch (AGP) at the Lindum, the main home of Lincolnshire Hockey.
Lincolnshire are welcoming county teams from Kent, Somerset (last year's winners), Surrey and Sussex in what should be a tremendous weekend of top quality hockey, with all teams playing each other in an exhausting four match schedule for each county. Lincolnshire won the top County Championship Division A in 2013 and were losing semi-finalists in 2014, 2017 and 2018.
Matches start at 10.30am on Saturday 11th May and continue throughout the day, and on Sunday 12th May matches commence at 9.00am.
Entrance is FREE, so do come along to see some great county hockey and the chance to see many of our county’s former youngsters who now play senior hockey at the top level all over the country. The Lincolnshire team is made up of many England Hockey National League players, as well as some players from local Lincolnshire clubs.
There will be plenty of food on sale, with an outside barbecue and also inside the clubhouse, along with drinks in the clubhouse bar at the Lindum Sports Club, St Giles Avenue, Lincoln, LN2 4PE.
