HOCKEY: Guildford's key role

Click to follow


Double headers this weekend involving Teddington, Cannock and Guildford, are unlikely to decide the final outcome of the National League First Division championship but will at least clear the picture.

Teddington, the leaders have a tough game this afternoon against Indian Gymkhana, who are noted for their defensive play, and tomorrow they visit last year's champions, Havant, who are going through a rebuilding period. Teddington will be without Peter Gibbins, their leading striker who aggravated a hamstring injury last week.

Guildford, who thrashed Teddington 4-1 last week, are in sixth place but only three points behind the leaders and entertain Bournville today, travelling the short distance to Feltham tomorrow to take on Gymkhana.

With the scalps of Havant, Hounslow, Southgate and Teddington already under their belt, Guildford,are going to have a big say in the destiny of the title.
