Canterbury Hockey Club closing in on Men's Conference East title

Canterbury men look to clinch the Men’s Conference East title with a week to spare when they face Teddington at Polo Farm on Saturday (6pm).

Three second-half goals in the space of seven minutes provided the platform for Sunday’s 4-3 win at Oxted, and opened up a four-point lead at the top after nearest rivals Old Loughtonians drew 3-3 at third-placed Holcombe.

Farrer (pictured) said: "Oxted are battling for their spot in the league, but something just seemed to click and we went onto dominate the second-half.

"It’s a good position to be in, knowing we can win the title this weekend, which means the pressure will be off and we can relax ahead of the play-offs."

First-season skipper Farrer added: "I have really enjoyed myself, but the role doesn’t faze me, I take everything as it comes.

"I have got a great coach in Kwan Browne supporting me and a good bunch of lads, and know that if we play to our potential we will be successful.

"We all want to get the club back in the Premier Division, and stay there."
