Hockey: Edinburgh University women want title treble

Have your say

Sam Judge will tomorrow look to guide Edinburgh University women’s hockey team to a third title this season.

The students have already won the Division One crown and the Scottish Cup, and play Grove Menzieshill at Glasgow’s National Hockey Centre this weekend looking to add the play-off title to their collection.

Edinburgh beat Milne Craig Clydesdale Western in the semi-finals at Peffermill last weekend and Judge said; “Grove and ourselves go out to play good hockey and the games against Western should stand us in good stead.”

Meanwhile, Inverleith men, winners of the domestic indoor title, are looking to clinch promotion back to the outdoor Division One this weekend after being relegated last season. Inverleith, who finished second in Division Two, will be minus the suspended Ross Simpson as they play Glasgow-based Hillhead – eighth in Division One – in a two-leg play-off to determine the tenth and last place in the top flight next season.
