Player/Coach Jen Wilson

Sevenoaks Ladies’ 1st XI has been ever-present in the Investec League East Conference since the National League was reorganised into its current format 10 years ago. Since then, the team has been consistently successful, having been crowned champions in 2011, and finishing runners-up on 5 occasions.

The team is fortunate to benefit from the experience of highly experienced & knowledgeable ex international players. Top level coaching is delivered by triple South African Olympian Jen Wilson, who is also currently the coach to the Senior Scotland Women’s squad. Ex-GB captain, Sue Chandler, is co-ordinator of Elite Performance, working with the coaches and management of both the 1st & 2nd teams and helping to promote and co-ordinate the progression of elite junior players into the top teams.

With the structure of the Investec League changing for the 2019-20 season, the minimum target for the 2018-19 season is to nail down qualification for the newly created Division 1. Promotion to the Premier Division remains the ultimate goal, and the team is determined that this season will see them make further progress towards achieving that aim. This season’s squad is made up of players who, between them, have amassed a high level of experience gained at playing in the elite levels of domestic and, in some cases, international hockey, together with a number of talented juniors. However, East Conference is a challenging league and there are other clubs in the league who share similar aspirations and who have recruited strongly over the summer. This promises to be another exciting and competitive campaign!

Indoors, the team plays in National Division 1 during the Winter break. In January 2018, the squad finished third, narrowly missing promotion to the Premier Division.

The club plays at Hollybush Lane where a new pitch was laid last summer, and where additional improvements to the facilities continue to be made.

The main training session takes place on Wednesday evenings, with a locally based skills session on Mondays.
