Unbeatable Camp Retro out to make Roger Brummitt Trophy history

The Camp Retro team defend their unbeaten record in the Roger Brummit Mixed Hockey Trophy this weekend (April 13/14).

Friday, 12th April 2019, 4:00 pm
Camp Retro (white) in action in the Roger Brummitt Trophy.

The all-star team have entered the popular competition three times and won on every occasion. They beat Sons of Pitches 1-0 in last year’s final.

Few will bet against them completing an unprecedented four-timer, although they will have a couple of players involved in City of Peterborough’s National League play-off game against Fareham tomorrow.

Camp Retro’s group opponents are Old Kingstonians, Beavers and Blue Green Zeds. Old Kingstonians are one of three new entrants - the others are Rutland Horseshoes and a second team from Bourne Deeping Hockey Club.
