Big weekend of Sapphire Hockey as two local rivals hit the town

January 17, 2019

Raiders 1 and 2 manage to host our two most local rivals in the same weekend.

Raiders 2 take to the ice on Saturday at 5-15pm with the derby that was traditionally the highlight of the Chelmsford and Raiders weekend. Chelmsford sit at the head of the table but a surprise loss to Slough last weekend proved they are far from infallible. 2’s took a great win at Bracknell last weekend and will be looking to roll that form into the Essex Derby and make sure that the large visiting contingent see a game worthy of the reputation.

Whilst the 2’s keep that tradition going despite Chelmsford drop in leagues, Raiders 1 will be at Invicta on Saturday determined to keep intact the recent winning record against the Gillingham side.

Sunday sees the Raiders 1 squad back at the Sapphire facing off at 5-30pm and looking to complete the double over Invicta.

2 teams, 2 leagues, 2 local derby’s and one very busy Sapphire centre. Make sure you get to support your boys!
