Hockey’s top two clash as Grange host Kelburne

Have your say

GRANGE entertain Scottish hockey champions Kelburne in the feature clash on tomorrow’s Division One card.

The West of Scotland club currently lead the table with 39 points from 13 straight wins.

Second-placed Grange are on 29 points having won nine and drawn two of their 13 games so far.

The odds are stacked in Kelburne’s favour but Grange coach Colin Clark is determined to cause a shock.

Last weekend’s 3-3 draw at Aberdeen in their first game back was not, however, what he wanted. In contrast, Kelburne cruised to a 6-0 victory over Glasgow outfit Hillhead, who are in eighth position in the ten-strong table.

Seventh-placed Inverleith, fresh from their fourth-place finish in the EuroHockey Indoor Trophy in Denmark, host Aberdeen.

Bottom club Watsonians look to break their 13-game losing streak when they host Hillhead.

And Edinburgh University, who are sixth, get back into outdoor action after the Christmas break by hosting Dundee Wanderers, who have only won one of their 13 games so far.
