Forty One Years of League Hockey
Saturday 14th October 1972 saw just over 200 first teams bully-off to start the largest hockey league in England.
21 years on, 405 teams pass back 17 times a season in over 3,000 matches in the largest volunteer run hockey League in the world.
40 years on, the final whistle on Saturday 31st March 2012 [mostly] concluded the season for over 600 teams (160 clubs) in the South [Open] Hockey League and the 8 Southern Counties' Open Leagues – organised in 52 divisions playing close to 7,000 fixtures.
And [finally] the 41st Season draws near to it's conclusion - you can now view many of the earlier seasons' fixtures and results online, can you fill in any of the blanks?
