Men's 1s Gracious in Defeat

 1st Feb 2020

20191020-Mens1TeamAs a team we gave everything we had on Saturday, but we just could not beat the students from Oxford University.

A target for the next few weeks and the seasons ahead is to be tighter in the first half of each game. Again, we conceded sloppy goals in the first half, and on reflection, goals that we should not be conceding.

Going into the half-time break, we were 0-3 down. But we fought hard and created a number of clear-cut opportunities to give ourselves a chance. It was Platter who scored our only goal of the day.

I cannot give the Oxford students enough credit - they were an absolute pleasure to play against; hard working on the pitch, competitive and they played in the spirit of the game. They were humble in victory and all stayed on for post-game tea.

Guildford Hockey Club would like to wish them well for the upcoming Varsity Match.
