Josh Tops the Premier League!

Josh Tops the Premier League!

Congratulations to Upper Sixth Former Josh Skillern who last week played his debut game for the Holcombe Men’s First team in the England Hockey Premier League division. The Holcombe team, which included Great Britain internationals Barry Middleton, George Pinner, Iain Lewers and Ashley Jackson, won 3-0 in front of an excited crowd.

Josh again played in the Men's Premier League game this weekend away against Cannock. The Holcombe First team won 3-2 and now top the Premier League! This was the final first team match for 2015 and we look forward to following more of Josh’s progress next year. Josh is one of the youngest players in the England Hockey Premier league and we couldn’t be more proud.  Well done Josh!
