Guernsey welcome one of the most successful clubs in English hockey to Footes Lane tomorrow – and will need to claim their scalp if they are to reach the EH Men’s Tier Two Championship quarter-finals.

East Grinstead Seconds will provide the Island side with formidable opposition, but having already overcome two tough obstacles in Hampton-In-Arden and Sutton Coldfield, Guernsey coach Ed Benfield feels his squad should be full of confidence heading into their last-16 encounter.

‘I genuinely feel like we have improved as a squad and selection has been incredibly difficult. There are no weak links,’ he said.

While their first team ply their trade in the Premier Division, East Grinstead Seconds are flying high in South East Men’s Division One West with 12 wins, two draws and just two defeats this season to currently sit second.

They have overcome Crawley and Sevenoaks Seconds to reach the last 16 of the national knockout.

Saturday's match starts at 1pm.
