Ladies 1 v Canterbury 2A

Old Loughtonians Ladies 1s moved a point clear at the top of the league with a demolition of Canterbury 2As at Luxborough Lane.   

Mens 7 v Thurrock 2

The Willows Woodsmen (Men’s 7’s)  had a home tie against Thurrock and were looking to bounce back from their defeat the previous week. Did they or didn’t they?


All three Willows teams achieved excellent wins this weekend, meaning that they are now all at the top of their respective divisions.


Our pitches have been in urgent need of a deep clean and this week Verde Recreo will be working around the clock from Sunday afternoon to Friday evening to clean both of our main pitches and the surrounding areas.  Jamie Oxley has also kindly volunteered to spend two days spray cleaning the surrounding signage, fencing, stands and other infrastructure.  The pitches will then be treated with microbes to prevent algae and other new growth.  A new maintenance programme to keep the pitches healthy will then be implemented.  Once the grounds have been disinfected we must do everything possible to avoid recontamination. 

New signage is being erected asking players to try to ensure that they do not bring sand, grass or algae onto the pitches.  Please do your bit by washing your shoes, stick, balls, goalie kit and any other kit which may have algae on it before you next play.  This is a huge expenditure for the club and we want to do all we can to maintain the pitches in the best possible condition.

In the long term we will need to replace pitches which will be an enormous cost so the longer we can protect and maintain the pitches the better

Sponsorship We are very fortunate to benefit from the generous support of Higgins Group Plc. Higgins Group Plc is one of the largest family-owned construction companies in South East England. It was formed as the parent company of the Higgins Group of Companies in 1989. The Higgins Group moved to their prestigious new offices at One, Langston Road in May 2005. The development and success of the club would not have been possible without the long term and continuing commitment of the company to our club as its principal sponsor.

It is important that the club continues to attract additional support and sponsorship. We welcome all levels of support (including another major sponsor alongside the Higgins Group) and potential bespoke packages are available to interested parties. Support and sponsorship can range from pitchside boards (on either of our pitches) to individual team deals. We welcome local sponsors in particular as well as national and international sponsors especially those with an interest in hockey.
