Hockey: Crutchley joins the 200 club
Monday 22 March 1999
Bobby Crutchley, with the first of his three goals, became the second player after Ian Jennings to take reach 200 League goals. Crutchley took his season's total to 35 and is odds-on to be top scorer for the fourth successive season.
Southgate, with goals from Todd Williams and Kwandane Browne, beat Hounslow 2-0 to ensure their runners-up finish with Hounslow having to play Surbiton in a home and away play-off to maintain their Premier status. East Grinstead and Brooklands are relegated. Reading were yesterday beaten 3-2 at home by Bournville.
Beeston, who routed East Grinstead 6-1 on Saturday, yesterday came from behind to beat Canterbury 5-2 to keep alive their drive for the play-offs.
Surbiton, with a 7-1 victory against Firebrands, took the Division One title in a game which they dominated as soon as South Africa's Wayne Bentley gave them the lead at a penalty corner in the 20th minute. Their goal machine then clicked into gear in spite of a string of saves from Firebrands' keeper Stuart Blake, with Greg Nicol maintaining his average of three goals a game.
At the bottom of the Division Hull are relegated to the Regional League, while Sheffield have to go into a play-off with the winners of the Regional Leagues.
In the mid-table battle for Division One places next season while Havant were beaten 2-1 by Hampstead and Westminster and will next season line up in Division Two.
