Bowdon Hightown Womens Hockey team heads to Europe

We are very proud to sponsor Bowdon Hockey Club and very excited that Bowdon Hightown women’s team is heading to Europe after weekend success at the Jaffa Super 6s.

Bowdon Hightown’s stunning defeat of Leicester in the Jaffa Super 6s Women’s Final on Sunday 28th January not only means they are the best women’s indoor team in the country for the 12th time, but also that the 14 strong team will be heading to Europe in February next year.

In a thrilling match Bowdon took an early lead with a Sally Walton penalty only for Leicester to draw level shortly after half time. Bowdon found the back of the net again with just four minutes to go – with the winning goal scored by Charlene Mason.

On scoring the winning goal Charlene says: “It was a total team effort but obviously I’m over the moon to have scored the winner. I can’t wait for us all to go to Europe where hopefully we can win the European title too!”

We recently secured a lucrative sponsorship deal with the club which will see adult and junior players across more than 20 teams sporting our logo on their kit for the next three years. With the women’s team reaching the televised national indoor final and now heading to Europe it looks to have been a good investment.

One of our directors, Chris Gawne, plays and manages Bowdon Hockey’s men’s eighth team. Commenting on the women’s win Chris says: “We are thrilled that Bowdon Hightown have been crowned national champions at the Jaffa Super 6s Indoor Hockey competition. They showed great skill and mental strength to come out on top and the Bowdon fans did their bit too! We are proud to be supporting Bowdon and wish the team all the best representing English hockey in European competition next season.”

Bowdon Hockey Club is one of the premier hockey clubs in England, which welcomes players no matter their experience or level of ability and which has current, previous and future England players playing across its adult and junior teams.   For more information visit www.bowdonclub.com/hockey-section
