MCCW assistant coach, Cat Semple, congratulates Grove coach Charlotte Jones on her side's National 1 title win for season 2012/2013
MCC Western and Grove turn on the style.
Congratulations all-round after a truly great game of hockey! And a big congratulations to Grove Menzieshill Ladies 1's - National 1 Champions 2012/2013.
Quite simply, an outstanding game of hockey from the Old Firm of Scottish ladies hockey. End to end, exciting, fast hockey with two great goals and a 1-1 score line that reflects an overall fair result on the day.
But, all credit to Grove Menzieshill who haven't lost a game this season, and despite dropping their first point of the season in this game, won National 1 yesterday with two games still to play.
Great performances all-round within both squads, but new GB selectee, Ali Bell, gets Man of the Match for Grove, for a killer performance which she complemented with a great goal.
And Catriona Ralph gets Man of the Match for MCC Western after killing a number of Grove attacks dead - including an unbelievable save on the line - through steely and canny leadership.
A big congratulations to Grove Menzieshill Ladies 1's - National 1 Champions 2012/2013. When you see this kind of fantastic display from National I Ladies, it's near impossible not to get excited about the Scotland Senior Ladies and their preparation and aspirations for Glasgow 2014.

FINAL SCORE: MCC Western 1 Grove Menzieshill 1. [Titwood 13/4/2013] Andy Lovat.
