Jaspers win promotion

Bristol & West Hockey Club’s Jaspers ladies 1st team have secured promotion by guaranteeing first place with one game still to play in their division.

The side remains unbeaten in the league so far, and will be looking to add the cherry on top of that cake with one final game against Westberries.

B&WJ1s have drawn four games and won the rest, scoring 46 goals and conceding only eight times in a 17-game period.

The team will move up into the West Women’s Division 1 North league from the start of next season where they will be one step away from West Premiership status, following a tremendous effort.

On the men’s side of the game it’s crunch time, as the 1st team are currently sitting joint top with Bristol University 2s, on 51 points.

The lads are ahead by the narrowest of margins, only by +1 goal difference. The stage is set however, as the local students are next up, in what could prove to be the season decider with only three games remaining.

The summer hockey season is just around the corner – to get involved or for more information visit www.bandwhc.org.uk.
