Two promotions for Bristol & West

WITH still over a month of league hockey to play, Bristol & West Men’s 4th team and the Ladies Jaspers 2nd team have managed to secure early promotions already.

The Men’s 4th team wrapped up their league title in early March, beating North Somerset 2s 5-0 away.

In their latest fixture they celebrated as champions, defeating South Glos 2s 9-1 as they look to finish with an undefeated record, having won 13 and drawn 4 to date.

They’ve scored 78 goals and have only conceded 10 thus far. 

On March 13, the Ladies 2nd team secured a 1-0 victory over Dursley in a mid-week rearranged fixture under the lights at Mangotsfield School.

This result guaranteed a promotion, with one point needed from the team’s remaining two games in order to claim the title.

The Ladies are also looking to see out the remainder of the season with an undefeated record, after having won 14 and drawn two so far.

They have scored an impressive 64 goals, whilst only conceding 15. 

Elsewhere in the club, the Men’s 1s are engaged in a fierce mid-table battle against the other local Bristol clubs, currently sitting 8th, with a game or two in hand above others and only one point needed to secure mathematical safety in what is their inaugural year in the West Premiership Division.

Another team to keep an eye on are the Ladies 3rds. Currently sitting pretty at the top of their league with 45pts, and only 1 loss, they still have some work to do in order to get over the line, as they are top on goal difference and five points ahead of the team in third.

We hope that in next month’s update we can give you all some good news about another promotion for the club!
