HOCKEY: OLTON men’s first team remain second in the Conference North thanks to a comfortable 3-0 victory away at Doncaster.

At times the performance was not pretty on Saturday but three points keeps Olton in second place behind the University of Durham.

Martin Ebbage opened the scoring for the Grange Road club and further goals from Alex Edmonstone and Martin Webb handed Olton the points. This weekend they are at home to old rivals Cannock.

Elsewhere, Henry Delacave bagged a hat-trick as Olton’ men’s second team recorded a convincing 7-0 victory over Khalsa, while two goals each from Jez Bishop and Adrian Stapley earned the third team a 5-0 win over Leek.

In the ladies section, Olton’s second team were on duty at Grange Road where both Holly Percival and Holly Smith bagged a brace in a comfortable 7-1 win.

There was not such good news for the third team who lost by a single goal to Edgbaston, but the fourth string team beat Blossomfield 7-0 and the fourth team beat Sutton Coldfield 2-1.

On Sunday, the Ladies’ first team entertained Trojans from Southampton in the Investec Conference West.

It proved to be a tight and hard fought match against two evenly matches sides but goals from Mandy Gatherer and Sally Walton secured Olton a narrow 2-1 win to keep them in third place.

The first team are next in action when they host Gloucester City at Grange Road on Saturday.
