Turn In Fortunes For UEL

The University of East London men's hockey first team were rewarded with their first win as Kent had to forfeit the game, as Teri Dormer reports.

UEL were awarded a walk-over against Kent who didn’t have enough players to field a side. This gives UEL their first win of the season and fresh hope of staying in the division.

The east London side are desperate for a draw in their last game against King’s College London Men’s 3rds, which takes place at home on the 22nd March, in order to stay up this season.

UEL’s captain Phillip Wilson has expressed how proud of the commitment his team has shown.

“The results are not as paramount to me as much as the development and growth of my team,” he said.

The midfielder believes the deciding game for the Blues will cement their position above relegation zone and he is confident that they will achieve that.
