Hockey - 25. April 2012.


PUKKA Pies-sponsored Leicester Ladies Hockey Team are celebrating a superb double after being crowned the hockey champions of England both indoor and outdoor.

Leicester Ladies beat fierce rivals Reading in a sudden death penalty shoot-out to win the Investec Championship final last week.

It also completed a double over Reading who were on the end of a 1-0 defeat in the indoor Championship earlier in the year.

Pukka Pies Co-Managing Director Mr Tim Storer said: "Our congratulations go to Leicester Ladies on another completing the double. Our partnership with Leicester Ladies, which is in its fourth year, is something we are very proud of and this success is a credit to all of the hard work that goes in from the team throughout the year.

"Now that the double is secure I know a lot of the Leicester players will have their eyes set on being part of the TeamGB squad that will take part in the London Olympics and we would like to wish them all the best of luck."

Leicester, who play in a bright orange kit as part of their partnership with Pukka Pies, are well established as one of Europe's leading ladies hockey clubs.

As well as domestic and European honours, the club supply several players for the England and Great Britain squads, and expect to provide a sizeable contingent of players for the 2012 Olympic ladies GB hockey squad.

Pukka Pies have a proud tradition of supporting sporting organisations. They are also sponsors of the Pukka Pies England Supporters Band who appear at all England football international fixtures and will be performing at the Euro 2012 Championships in Poland and Ukraine.
