The players from Bournemouth Hockey have a date with destiny at Canterbury on the weekend of April 9th and 10th.

They compete in the round-robin finals against Leicester, Teddington in South-West London and Wakefield, having knocked out four sides on the way.

Exeter, Bath Buccs and Maidenhead fell, with victory against Canterbury in the last round on penalties following a nail-biting 4-4 draw.

David Fairchid, WP Group’s Managing Director, whose daughter Brodie is team captain, said: “We are delighted to sponsor the squad and wish the players every success in the finals . Victory would be thoroughly deserved after all the hard work they have put in.”

The team has also made it to the Hampshire Cup Final, which takes place on Hampshire Finals Day, Monday, May 2nd at Chapel Gate, Christchurch, against Southampton, having knocked out Havant and Trojans.

Gavin Rusling, the coach, said: “The girls have been in fantastic form this season, and they can’t wait to fly the flag for Dorset and the South Coast nationally.

“The three other teams involved are bound to be strong and Wakefield are three-times defending champions, but we go there with confidence high, knowing that we have played some good teams en route to the finals.”

Gavin, a partnership development manager at QE School, Wimborne, added: “The commitment, dedication and team ethos in the squad has been superb ­ the players are a real credit to the club and the schools they come attend.

“Not one of them sees themselves as the ‘star’ of the team despite several of them achieving regional representative honours. They are just a really good group to coach and spend time with.”

In a further boost to morale, several firms have sponsored the team’s sports kit, with WP Group, the regional fuels distributor, supplying hooded tops and shorts displaying the WP Group logo.

Tradelink, a plumbing supplier, and Uponor, a supplier of plumbing and indoor climate systems, are other sponsors.
