Last season (2017/18) the then 4th Xl came a good second in Kent Open Division 4 to gain promotion for this season to Kent Open Division 3. That promotion gained them recognition in the Club's end of season Dinner as 'Team of the Year'.
Through the removal of the old 1st Xl and the renumbering of the three remaining League teams as a result, the team now plays this season (2018/19) in their new Division as Sutton Valence 3rd Xl. Though the starting-level Club team, this team now have some years’ experience behind them and continue to provide a happy and friendly environment for those wishing to start, develop, come back to or continue with their hockey career.
The team started as predominately a younger development team, however have developed into an eclectic mix through the generations - from 13 year olds as their first step into men’s hockey, all through to younger Vets.
They pride themselves on being non-exclusive - if you want a game of hockey you will always be welcomed, whether you have never picked up a hockey stick or are returning from an absence. If you are a father and want to play alongside your son this is the ideal place.
While winning is always the aim, this isn't always possible but competitive, fun and well disciplined hockey is encouraged as with this players will improve. Whilst not always winning the team are always competitive.
