If your answer to that question wasn’t “watching the Mens’ 1s beat Bowdon to stay in the EHL Prem” then you should be ashamed of yourself. OK, you’re busy, you played on Saturday, and weekends are short, you can barely remember your partner’s name and you have a nagging feeling that you should be doing something productive, but this is important. Really important. And the team need your support.
This is what the league table looks like:
England Hockey League Men’s Premier Division 2011/12
|1||East Grinstead Men’s 1s||17||12||2||3||38|
|2||Beeston Men’s 1s||17||11||1||5||34|
|3||Reading Men’s 1s||17||9||3||5||30|
|4||Cannock Men’s 1s||17||9||2||6||29|
|5||Surbiton Men’s 1s||17||8||3||6||27|
|6||Loughborough Students MHC Men’s 1s||17||7||2||8||23|
|7||Hampstead and Westminster Men’s 1s||17||7||1||9||22|
|8||Southgate Men’s 1s||17||4||3||10||15|
|9||University of Exeter Men’s 1st||17||4||2||11||14|
|10||Bowdon Men’s 1s||17||4||1||12||13|
We’ve given ourselves every chance, but this Sunday is about as big a game as you will ever see at Southgate. A win will see the lads pulling on the red and black, on our brand new pitches, in the EHL Premiership next season.
Bowdon are bringing two coach loads of supporters down, and they’re a noisy bunch, so bring the whole family, bring your friends, and most importantly: bring your voices.
Push back is 2pm, but make sure you get a spot on the balcony and get there for at least 1.30pm.
COME ON GATE!!!
