Attired in their smart Brooks MacDonald sponsored kit, Trojans have certainly looked the part – and played it – during the opening half of the 2018/19 season, lying second one point behind Guildford in South League Premier Division 2.
They have won nine of their 11 matches, scoring 48 goals and conceding 14, the best defensive record in SPD2.
Trojans went into the winter break on a high, coming from behind to win 4-1 at Staines, with South African Sinoxolo Mbekeni (aka Essex) equalising. Scott Summers, Dave McNee and Elliott Cole added further goals to give Trojans their victory.
Trojans, whose next match against Guildford at Stoneham Lane on January 19, looks a potential title decider, are also through go the second round of England Hockey’s Tier 2 Premier Cup on the back of a comfortable 4-1 win over Haslemere, the game being tied up by half-time with Dan Ferrier, Paul Hilton, Colin French and Sinoxolo Mbekeni on target. Tim Greene deservedly pulled a goal back for Haslemere late on.
Trojans’ reward is a second round home tie against Warminster-based West League Championship side West Wilts at Stoneham Lane on February 3.
