Last week, Surbiton Hockey Club took delivery of new goals with yellow goalposts, the same type as will be used in the EHCCC.
Friso van den Berg, EDEL’s representative, visited Sugden Road last Tuesday (24 March) to sign a new sponsorship deal.

As can be seen below, the remainder of the goal is coloured green, a colour which has specially pantone matched to Surbiton’ green shirts.
From left to right, Fred Moore, Friso van den Berg and Keith Wallis proudly stand next to a golden goal.
Then, later in the day, goalkeepers, Vicky Hewett and Ellie Shahbo took their places between the golden sticks to show how goalmouth action is likely to look, when the goals are used for first team fixtures in the Investec Women’s Hockey League and the Men’s Hockey League next season.
