hockeySoar Media would like to congratulate everybody at Leicester Hockey Club for finishing top of the Investec Premier League after a convincing 4-1 victory over Slough in front of a bumper home crowd at Leicester Grammar School on Saturday.

Leicester’s goalscorers in a final day of the season fixture dubbed the ‘Slough Showdown’ were Julia Karwatzky, who bagged a brace, Sandy Yeates and Katie Long. The result was the team’s 13th victory in 18 games and saw them grab top spot for the first time this campaign.

The Pukkas will now compete in the end of season play-offs, taking on Surbiton in a semi-final at Reading on Saturday April 20th, whilst finishing top of the pile has also guaranteed the club’s automatic qualification for next year’s European Championships.
