Hockey: Rovers show class to secure promotion

THE long trip to Turkey proved worthwhile as under-strength Three Rock Rovers won promotion from Europe's lowest division of indoor hockey.

Battling Rovers put themselves in contention for a top-two finish in the six-team EuroHockey Indoor Club Challenge when they snatched a draw from hosts and eventual winners, Atesi, on Saturday.

In their final game yesterday, they beat Lokomotiv 1929 Sofia 6-1.

Back home, title holders Glenanne enjoyed Leinster League victories against Pembroke Wanderers and Corinthians at the weekend.
