About the team
The ethos of the Acorns is to combine younger players with more experienced hands. It is the first stepping stone for our promising juniors into ladies’ hockey and the girls play alongside experienced senior players who are there to guide and support them as they gain confidence playing hockey matches alongside and against adults. Once they are ready the junior players then move on into the full ladies’ team which will work best for their individual ability at that stage and their future development. The Ladies Acorns team were crowned Champions of Kent Division 1 and therefore have been promoted to Kent Premier league where they compete strongly against many first and second teams from other clubs.
