It is with great pride and excitement that we can now announce that our Ladies 1s have gained promotion to the National Hockey League for next season!
They will join our Men’s 1s who achieved the same feat last year. This is a historic achievement for London Wayfarers Hockey Club, with both first teams competing at that level for the first time.
Reflecting on their promotion season, Ladies 1s Head Coach, Mark Atherton explains “It has been an incredible twelve months for the club and for both our men’s and ladies’ 1st teams to have secured national league status during that period has been amazing.
It is a great reward, not only for all of the players who have been involved over the past few seasons and who adapted fantastically to a challenging year, but also for the team behind the team – all those who work tirelessly behind the scenes to give us these opportunities and without whose support this would not have been possible.
The recent Y1 London Cup has given us invaluable experience and insight into the demands at the next level and plenty of food for thought as we build into next year. We carry great energy, momentum, excitement and continued ambition as a club into the next chapter and cannot wait to get started!”
Congratulations to all our Ladies 1s, captain Becks Cadwallader, coaches Mark Atherton & Sam Spencer, and all those involved along the way, and huge thanks to club sponsor Savills and our kit partner Y1 for their continued support!
