WITH Malvern looking forward to their league game after winning the previous week, they started with confidence and were soon ahead when Kerry Broadhead -Evans scored.


With good play down the right it was Emily Price who scored at the far post to make it 2-0 at half time.

Stourport started the second half knowing they had to improve and soon made it 2-1. This lifted Malvern again and Nicky Harvey had an excellent game with the rest of Malvern's midfield strong. They were awarded a free hit which Louise Jelley took and Kerry Broadhead-Evans cracked the ball in first time.

Stourport made it 3-2 then with an unfortunate second own goal but Emily Price scored her second to give Malvern a 4-2 win.

This can only give the team confidence and lift Malvern to play the good team hockey they have played this half of the season.


MALVERN travelled to Kidderminster for their return league fixture determined to gain revenge for their home defeat.

With Kidderminster starting the stronger causing Malvern's defence to play strong and together to soak up the pressure, this was to their advantage and Malvern soon began to attack strongly.

This was rewarded when Kerry Tudge took a fast free hit, catching the defence out with Kerry Broadhead-Evans scoring.

The second half began with Kidderminster making use of all their pressure to draw level. but it was then Malvern who took control of the game attacking continuously and it was good play by Jo Hall down the right which gave her a goal to win the match for Malvern.

Team: Tess Morris, Kerry Tudge, Kerry Broadhead-Evans, Kate Martin, Sarah Hopkins, Nicky Jones, Nicky Harvey, Emily Price, Jo Hall, Jeanette Tudge and Emily Swinswood.
