THERE were big wins for Timperley Hockey Club recently with the women winning their fourth National League Conference North game of the season, the men's firsts picking up three points at Doncaster and both second XI's continuing their winning ways in the North League.

Travelling to Fylde, the ladies continued their unbeaten start to the season with a 1-0 victory courtesy of a fantastic top left-hand corner strike from Leonnie Molloy that broke the deadlock.

The following day, the men’s firsts came back from 2-0 down at Doncaster to win 3-2 in the final quarter with goals from Wez Wareham, Connor Miller and a contender for goal of the season from William Tobin.

Elsewhere, the men’s second XI continued their unbeaten run and ran out 7-0 victors at Bebington with the principal contribution a penalty corner hat-trick from Dave Price, as they went back to the top of the table.

The third XI won a bottom-of-the-table tussle with Northop Hall 3-1, with the fourth XI drawing 2-2 with Brooklands.

The fifth XI lost at home to Crewe Vagrants 4-2 with the opposition's experience proving too much for youthful endeavour.

The sixth XI remain unbeaten and a 4-0 win at Bramhall kept them top of table.

The newly-formed men's seventh XI  had another tough day losing 7-0 at home to Lymm but the winner being getting more people playing hockey.

In a series of local derbies, the ladies also had a good all-round set of results with the second XI winning 2-0 at Alderley Edge, the third XI drawing 0-0 with Bowdon and the fifth XI beat Chester fourths 3-0.

However, the fourth XI lost 3-1 to Chester thirds.
