Bingham family aim for hockey hat-trick

A hat-trick of Binghams will be playing in the England Hockey National Club Championship Finals this weekend for two different clubs.

Lottie Bingham, 18, will be playing for Holcombe Women’s 1s against Beeston Women’s 1s in the Tier 1 Final.

Lottie, a current England U21 women’s squad member, played in the Junior World Cup in Chile earlier this season and is currently revising for her A Levels at Weald of Kent Grammar School.

Lottie left Knole Park to sign for Holcombe this season and has helped them achieve promotion back into the Premier Division. Still a part of Knole Park’s junior programme, she is back on the pitch enjoying summer training with her sister. 

Her younger sister Emily Bingham, 14, will be playing for HC Knole Park women’s 1s in the Tier 2 Final against Swindon Women’s 1s.

The club’s women’s 1s achieved their fifth consecutive promotion into the South East Premier Division next season. They reached the Tier 2 Final after a convincing semi-final win against the British Army. Emily is in Year 9 and also plays for the club’s U14 side, as well as for UK Lions and Kent U14 Girls. 

Meanwhile mum Ruth will run out for HC Knole Park women’s 2s in the Tier 4 Final against Preston Women’s 2s. Last time Knole Park reached the National Final in 2022, Ruth was on the sidelines celebrating the win, having undergone major surgery to remove a sarcoma.

This weekend she will be on the pitch, having made a full recovery as the Bingham fans in the stands aim for a trio of successes.
