London RHC played their remaining matches of the season at the final National Division 1 tournament, held in Maidstone over the weekend. London started the day strong, registering an 8-0 victory against Soham before a second clean sheet day was earned against Cottenham who London beat 10-0.
The final match of the day was a thrilling one against the hosts Maidstone who managed to get themselves 2-0 up before London registered a goal of their own to take the score to 2-1 at the break. London fought hard all match against a Maidstone team who must be credited for their strong defensive performance. A tiring London side just couldn’t turn the scoreboard in their favour and eventually Maidstone held on to record a 4-3 win over the league champions.
London RHC would like to reiterate their thanks to all that have contributed to making our first season such a success. The club is extremely proud of what has been achieved and can not thank or congratulate the players, staff, volunteers and sponsors enough for their efforts this season!

A dominant home tournament display from the London RHC National Division 1 squad earned them all 12 points at the weekend and a giant step closer to the Premier League! On Sunday 13th March the Manchester, Maidstone, Project 2016 and Herne Bay teams travelled to the Lions Community Centre to face the top of the table side looking to seal promotion in their inaugural season.
London started their day against one of their closest rivals Manchester, the previous match between the two sides ended in a 3-3 draw. With London keen to take the initiative early in the game, 2 quick goals settled the team as London began to assert their dominance. Manchester managed to pull one back before London slotted home another two before the break. With London controlling their possession game into the second half they controlled the match to the final whistle earning them their first 3 points of the day.
The second game of the day for London was against Maidstone, another title contender. The match was very close with Maidstone playing a tight defence looking to exploit the counter attack. London got the scoreboard moving first with a well worked team goal but Maidstone struck back after some patient play. The game moved backwards and forwards before London started to take control snatching another to take a 2-1 lead. With only seconds of the first half remaining Maidstone grabbed an equaliser taking the teams level into the break. The second half was tense with both sides squandering opportunities but with 5 minutes to go London found the winner and held possession until the end of the game earning them another victory.
London’s third game was against the well organised Project 2016 team. London controlled the match from the start, restricting Project’s opportunities on the London goal and starving them of possession. 2 first half goals followed by a further 3 in the second half saw London run out 5-0 winners and a well earned clean sheet too.
The final game of the day for London was against Herne Bay. Again London controlled the match enjoying the lion share of possession and regularly adding to the scoreboard. London played their system very well and converted some excellent team goals to run out eventual 8-1 winners. A dominant performance to round of a perfect 12 point day for the team.
With just one tournament left to play for London, one more win will crown them champions!
Well done to all players and staff involved and a special thank you must go to the parents of the Project 2016 who helped out with the timekeeping on the day!
London Roller Hockey Club are only a solitary victory away from clinching their first title after a 9 point weekend at Herne Bay United’s home SECRHA tournament. It was an early start for the team, leaving London at 6am to make it to the Bay Sports Arena to take on Invicta in their first match of the day. London took a few minutes to get going but soon took a hold of the game, controlling possession and limiting Invicta to only a couple of shots on the London net. The match ended 5-2 in London’s favour.
After a short break London were straight back on the rink to face the organised HBU outfit and found themselves behind after a couple minutes through a deflected goal from the hosts. London rallied and levelled the scores but after a few frantic minutes with the team fouls mounting against them they found themselves behind 3-1 going into the break. The score remained the same deep into the second half, a time-out was called with just over 6 minutes to go, London knew it was now or never if they were going to take anything from this game. Piling on the pressure London executed their attacking plays to level the game with just over 2 minutes left on the clock. Pressuring the ball London were able release a counter attack snatching the winning goal and securing another 3 points with their second win.
The final game of the day was against Herne Bay and after a closely fought first half the scores were tied 1-1 at the break. London worked hard to break down the opposition defence in the second half and the scoreboard was soon ticking over comfortably with some well worked team goals and individual break-away’s. London ran out eventual 8-1 winners to seal the 9 point weekend and move within 3 points of the SECRHA Senior League title.
Well done to all!
