Thursday Sport: Leek men’s hockey team in promotion challenge


LEEK will be seeking to maintain their promotion challenge when they face Stourport at home in the Midland Men’s Hockey League Premier Division this Saturday (2pm).

The Moorlanders stand fourth in the table, only three points behind the league leaders, Belper..

Leek secured a fine a 3-2 win at Loughborough last weekend, where skipper Daniel O’Neill (2) and Will Hebditch were the scorers.

The visitors were indebted to a brilliant late save by goalkeeper Adam Knott to deny Loughborough a share of the spoils.
