Cup fever hits Leamington Hockey Club this Sunday as the ladies’ 1st XI host Alderney Edge in the quarter-final of the national Investec Women’s Trophy.

The game takes place on Sunday at North Leamington School on Sandy Lane with a pushback at 1.30pm.

Leamington are runaway leaders of the Midlands Division One having lost just once all season, scoring 50 goals in the process, and go into the game full of confidence.

Becky Lascelles, Leamington captain and England mixed international, is excited at the prospect of getting a step closer to booking a trip to the Lee Valley Stadium and is keen to have plenty of home supporters on the sidelines.

She said: “We’re having a really special season and continuing our cup run would be the icing on the cake.

“Of course, we have no doubt about how difficult it will be to make it to the semi-finals, but we’re in great form and are full of confidence.

“It’s going to be an exciting afternoon and we’d love to see the sidelines packed full of Leamington supporters to help cheer us into the next round.”
