FREMANTLE Hockey Club’s women 1’s team will play in the State League competition in 2017 after a massive win in their final promotion/relegation game on Thursday night.

Also finishing the regular season on top of the Promotion 1 ladder, which earned them an automatic placing in next weekend’s grand final, the Magpies will next year compete against the best in the competition after getting through the promotion/relegation round robin with two wins from three games.

Last night’s hard-fought 2-1 win over fellow Promotion 1 team Hale sealed their passage to the premier competition in the State.

Their grand final match up against either Hale or Southern River will be from 11.30am on September 24 at the Perth Hockey Stadium.
