England Hockey has confirmed that, in the light of the latest COVID-19 restrictions imposed this week, grass roots and club/league hockey is suspended for the foreseeable future.
Only six rounds of matches have been played in the men’s South Division, with Havant’s last outing on November 1 when the recorded their first win of the season, a 5-3 victory at Oxford Hawks.
Fareham have been mothballed in second place in the West Conference, with four wins from six outings, while Chichester have been successful just once, beating Plymouth Marjon 3-2. They lie second from bottom of the log.
It’s an identical scenario in women’s hockey, with Trojans beating Slough and Surbiton to record two wins from six games in the South Division. The South Women’s League had previously suspended their season until February 27 2021, after which they hope (somewhat optimistically) to resume league matches on the basis that each team will play each other once and so complete a curtailed programme.
