Mens 1st XI

Sevenoaks will compete in the England Hockey National Division One South for the 2020/21 season, representing the second highest division in the club hockey national structure.

Oaks recently had a taste of the Premier League, for the first time in the club’s history, during a two-year spell at the top-table of domestic hockey, and there is a strong desire from the squad to get back to that level. Last season the club appointed former South African international Ian Haley as Player-Coach and his Olympic Games playing experience and excellent coaching credentials saw the squad finish second in the National Division One South, in what was a successful transitional season for the team. This coming season we’ll be looking to go one better.

As well as competing in National Division One South, we will be playing in the National Indoor Premier League for the eighth consecutive season, cementing us as one of the top indoor sides in the country. Last season we finished fifth, narrowly missing out on a place at Finals Day on goal difference. In four of the last seven seasons we have finished in the top four and qualified for Finals Day but have yet to progress beyond the semi-final stage. We’ll be looking to improve on our record this season.

We are based in Kent, only a short train journey from central London (25 minutes from London Bridge) and play on a superb hybrid pitch at Hollybush Lane, close to the centre of Sevenoaks.

After nine seasons as captain, Tim Warrington is handing the armband over to four-time player of the season winner and influential defender Chris Barker. Chris has been vice-captain for six seasons and has come through the ranks at Sevenoaks, starting in the junior section at the age of seven.

The squad is blessed with a number of talented players, including a host of players with junior international experience, and we are immensely proud that almost half the squad are products of our thriving junior section. We look forward to welcoming some of the next batch of impressive youngsters into the squad over the coming years. With the ambition of returning to the outdoor Premier League and challenging for indoor honours, it could not be a more exciting time to be part of Sevenoaks Hockey Club!

If you would be interested in joining us, please get in touch with any of the contacts above. We’d love to have you along!

As an amateur family club we are currently almost entirely funded by player subscription fees, sponsorship and voluntary fundraising and we want to keep it that way. As such we are looking to raise further money to help meet the costs of pushing for Premier League Hockey. If you would be interested in sponsoring the team or an individual squad member then please get in contact with Chris Barker. For all other club sponsorship enquiries please see the sponsorship section of the website for information, or contact Janine Nicholls directly.
