NEWLY-FORMED Abbotsholme Ladies Hockey Club have made a dramatic impact in their first season in the Staffordshire Women’s Hockey League.
Abbotsholme are riding high at the top of the Fourth Division with an unbeaten playing record, having scored more than 103 goals and conceded just 10 in their 12 games to date.
The team dropped their first points of the season at the weekend, when they were held to a 2-2 away to third placed Lichfield 6s, but coach Laura Askew was well pleased with the result.
“A good solid draw today, great result and the first team to take points off Lichfield at their home ground all season,” she said after the game.
Abbotsholme Ladies Hockey Club was founded last September by Laura, who is Head of Sport at Abbotsholme School, near Rocester, where the team is based.
