England Hockey Investec North Conference

Belper 1 – 1 Beeston
Belper Meadows – 11th February – 12:00pm
The Whirlowdale Bees made the short trip to Belper Meadows Sports Club this Saturday in the England Hockey Investec North Conference to play bottom of the table Belper. 
The game was goalless at half-time but it was Belper who took the lead in the 50th minute with a penalty corner goal by Sarah Glenn.
Beeston and England Under 21 international, Esme Burge, pulled a goal back in the 59th minute from the penalty spot.
The Bees were unable to pick up another goal and Belper picked up their first point of the 2016/17 season.
Manager, Chris Glover, comment, “We just didn’t turn up today, we didn’t play to the level we can do and obviously a very disappointing result. We’re back home tomorrow in the cup 1/4 final and will be looking to bounce back with a positive result.”
