The Dev team was set up to give our talented juniors their first experience of senior hockey in a nurtured way. It has been running for 7 seasons now, with much success, and the team currently sits in Division 3 of the Surrey Ladies League.
The team is set up as our 5th team, sitting near the middle of the ladies section, to provide a good standard of opposition. After 2 years, juniors are then integrated into the ladies section, many consistently holding their own in team squads, with some reaching the first team.
The team is captained by Joanna Close along side Georgina Headley, both long standing members of the club and ex national league, first team players. The team hopes to comprise an equal balance of adults and juniors. The adults are there to lead by example and guide the juniors through good team structure and competitiveness, hoping to give them confidence and strengthen their play.
