Preview: Investec Women's Hockey League title and play-offs!
Holcombe Last year's finalists Holcombe have a score to settle this time round as they seek to go one better than that second-place finish. This is a team that knows how to handle pressure – having beaten the University of Birmingham in their final game of the season to secure a spot at League Finals – and will be looking to take that nous into this weekend. Their forward line will be lead by Gold Coast bronze medallist Ellie Watton and she is joined in an experienced team by Welsh stars Sarah Jones, Jo Westwood, Rose Thomas, Beth Bingham and captain Leah Wilkinson, who all represented their country at the recent Commownealth Games, as did South Africa's Dirkie Chamberlain.
East Grinstead Another team who will be appearing at a second consecutive League Finals weekend, East Grinstead can thank a strong mid-season run for the fact they have qualified for this showpiece event. Six wins in eight games either side of the Christmas break propelled the Sussex-based side into the top four and there they stayed until the end of the season thanks to results going their way on the final weekend. Joint-highest goalscorer Laura Unsworth will be looking to add to her tally, having scored for England at the Commonwealth Games, while international team-mates Ellie Rayer and Amy Tennant will be hoping to take their team to a first ever league title.
