Hockey: Tunbridge Wells’ Glubb decides tough contest

Pam Mills


TUNBRIDGE WELLS Ladies ground out a win in a tough game against East London at Hawkenbury to gain revenge for their defeat in the corresponding fixture earlier in the season.

Through wind and rain the girls went on the attack and broke down their defence regularly.

A quick 16 from Amy Hare was followed by a strong drive up the middle of the pitch by the captain Jen Hunt.

She slipped the ball through the visiting defence to find Bertie Organ, who in turn found Anna Glubb on the far post to sweep the ball past the keeper.

The second half was to require largely a defensive rearguard by Wells with East London having most of the possession, and they showed great resilience.

It was a satisfying display, as the side -successfully transferred their skills and -organisation during a defence-focused training session in midweek.

Ali Playle was active in goal saving several shots and she was deservingly named player of the match.

Wells remain third in the East Region Division One South and now travel to Bishops Stortford on Saturday (January 27, 1.30pm start).
