Hockey: Teddington seek goals from old boy Conway

NICK CONWAY, assistant coach to the touring United States women's squad who are playing a three-match Test series against Great Britain, takes time off this afternoon to appear for his old team Teddington in their Premier League local derby at home to Surbiton.

Conway, who was capped by England five times in 1995, was a prolific league scorer before he left for States and could provide some of the finishing Teddington have been lacking this season. He will not be available for their fifth-round cup tie tomorrow, when they entertain East Grinstead, as the Americans play an England development squad at Milton Keynes National Stadium at 2.30pm.

The Great Britain players have been released to play for their clubs in today's League programme but will be missing from tomorrow's Cup games. Fortunately, with the exception of Canterbury, who are missing Mel Clewlow and Anna Bennett away to Doncaster, all the affected clubs have been drawn against lower-division opposition.

Hightown, at home to Sutton Coldfield, should maintain their three-point margin at the top of the Women's Premier and can expect an easy Cup tie against Charnwood, the Leicestershire club four divisions below them.

Reading, the Men's leaders, have a tough game away game against Old Loughtonians at Chigwell today and are at home to Division Two Isca in the Cup. Reading have survived two crises in their Cup run, beating Maidenhead 3-2 after twice coming from behind and Surbiton by a similar score with a golden goal after they had equalised 30 seconds from the end of normal time.

In Division Two, Oxford University, one point off the bottom, have decided that all members of the squad will go for a run at 7.30am each morning until they have achieved three wins.
