Teams - Men's 1st XI
Our Men’s 1st XI play in the NOW: Pensions Men’s Hockey League Premier Division.
With new coach, Todd Williams in charge, Surbiton are playing in the EuroHockey League for the first time in 2013-14, after finishing runners-up to Beeston in the 2012-13 NOW: Pensions MHL Championships in Reading. The team also lifted the Men’s Cup for the first time in their history at Wakefield Hockey Club, beating London rivals, Hampstead and Westminster 3-1 in the final.
Unfortunately, the team had less success indoors, suffering relegation from the Maxifuel Super Sixes Premier Division, but will aim for promotion from Maxinutrition Hockey 5s Division One at the first attempt in 2013-14.
Surbiton currently have one England international, Rob Moore; and four Scottish internationals: Fergus Dunn, Chris Grassick, Nick Parkes, plus Alan Forsyth, who joined Surbiton this season from Kelburne, and Irish international: Michael Watt, a former player with Dutch club, SCHC.
