For the first time in the club’s history our Men’s 1s have gained National League status. A fantastic achievement by players, coaches and all those involved and a milestone for London Wayfarers Hockey Club.

Two seasons ago Phil Ball joined our club as a player/coach with a single mission; to take our Men’s 1s into National League and start a journey to success.

Led by captain Sion Owen, a great bunch of players really elevated their performance this season after narrowly missing out last year. Getting results from challenging games, losing only 1 game all season, and scoring 108 goals with the least conceded summed up what an effort was put in by the whole squad!

Special thanks go to all those involved on the sidelines and in the background. Marcel van Eldik and Jonathan Stubbs for their manager and supporting roles, Jo Darley and all the ball patrol boys, Mike Coffin, Finn Green and the other members of the executive committee.

Of course we would also like to thank club sponsor Savills and our kit partner Y1 Hockey for their support. They are a key part of our success.

This promotion is strong evidence of our ambition over the coming years to establish our club as one of the leading hockey clubs in the country. With a clear strategy we are building strong foundations for all parts of our hockey club to flourish as we continue to work hard on delivering the best hockey experience for our London Wayfarers family.

We will continue to build on this success to reach even greater heights in coming years!
