Canterbury Hockey Club captain Michael Farrer says staying up still a priority
By Alex Hoad
Canterbury Hockey Club skipper Michael Farrer insists his side
would be happy to simply avoid relegation, despite a blistering
start which has seen them win six of their first seven games in the
National Premier Division.
The newly-promoted city club sit second in the table, five
points clear of third-placed Cannock, over a third of the way
through the campaign. However, Farrer (pictured) is keen to play
down any talk of title tilts or even targeting a play-off spot.
He said: "We are pleased with the start, of course we are. If
you said to anyone before the start of the season that we’d win six
of our first seven games then they wouldn’t have believed it.
But in the past six or seven years, only a couple of teams have
managed to stay up after going up to this division. "No matter what
has happened or what happens from here, simply avoiding relegation
would be a significant achievement."
