Congratulations to Oxford University Hockey Club Men’s Blues who are the 2013-14 champions of BUCS Premier South!
The Infrequents (Men’s 3rd team) also claimed their Midlands 4A league title on Wednesday with a 7-0 win over Oxford Brookes 4th team.
The Blues share the BUCS Premier South league with powerhouses of national hockey in that of Bath, Exeter and Bristol but have wrapped up the league with a game to spare!
A particular highlight of the season was beating Exeter home and away this year which means even if they share the top of the table after next Wednesday’s results, Oxford will claim the title on virtue of the two team’s head-to-heads.
The league win means that the team can look forward to a good draw in the BUCS Championship knockouts, in what will be their best chance in recent years to go the distance!
Oxford will get a bye through the Last 16 and then a home draw Quarter Final on 12th March. Put the date in your diary to come and support!
Very well done to captain Rupert Allison and his talented team!
Tickets are still available for the 114th University Hockey Match on 9th March 2014 at Southgate Hockey Centre.
The team also sit 4th in the Southern Premier League with games every Saturday.
