Epsom’s fine opening stretches on after seven-goal thriller
Epsom Hockey Club are leading the pack in the early days of the Hants/Surrey Regional Division One thanks to back-to-back wins.
Following an opening day 4-0 win at Reigate Priory, skipper James Midmer’s men beat Fareham 4-3 at their new home at Therfield School in Leatherhead on Saturday.
A Midmer brace, plus goals from Mike Atkinson and James Harris ensured Epsom’s unbeaten start to the season remained intact, and they lead the table by two points.
Midmer said: “The squad has settled down after last season when we had a lot of new players.
“It was a nervy finish against Fareham, to be sure, but now we’re looking forward to going to Hamble this weekend.”
Epsom had to come from behind to beat Fareham after the visitors opened the scoring.
