Longest Match - History is made Today

By Mike Smith - Hockey Archives

Earlier today at the South League Playoffs at Haslemere Hockey Club a record was broken.

In the first semi final game between Fareham 2s and Horsham 1s heavy rain intervened and eventually the match took four hours and three minutes to complete.

The longest game in the history of the South League! - unless you know better?

For the record, the final result was a 7-5 victory for Horsham.

History is not just about what happened ages ago. What happens today is history tomorrow. At the National Hockey Museum we are trying to collect together and record everything we can form the long and rich history of hockey, right up to today.

If you have any information or would like to be a part of the National Hockey Museum do please contact us.
