Nestled close to Oxford lies the leafy town of Witney, whose women’s hockey first team has enjoyed a meteoric rise up the league tables in recent times with a spate of promotions.

Competing as the smallest team in the English National League’s second tier is something all at Witney are incredibly proud of, but the journey has not been all plain sailing.
