Title slips from their grasp

First published in Local Sport

MALDON Hockey Club's men's first team saw the East League division four south east title slip through their grasp.

Maldon entertained Upminster 3rds knowing that a win would see them seal promotion as champions, a draw would likely see them promoted in second place, depending on other results, and a loss could see them fail to achieve promotion completely.

The home side were held to a 2-2 draw by the visitors.

The result ended up being enough to see Maldon promoted from second place but this was still a bitter pill to swallow, having been seven points clear at the top of the table only a few weeks previously.

Due to Brentwood defeating Witham, they ended up league champions and will be joining Maldon in division three south east next season.
