EH Cup: Holders Guernsey knocked out by Blackheath & Old Elthamians

Guernsey Hockey
Guernsey's Hockey team had not lost a knockout game since May 2015

Defending champions Guernsey were knocked out of the England Hockey Trophy in the third round.

They lost 4-2 to last year's beaten finalists Blackheath & Old Elthamians.

Steve Waldrom put the island side ahead at Footes Lane and scored again late on, but it was not enough to deny the visitors a place in the next round.

The defeat means Guernsey, who had beaten London Edwardians in the previous round, will not reach the final for the first time since 2011.
