Long serving Chesterfield HC member Nick Kennerley was recently selected to represent England Over-60s and came away from the Pacific Rim SAS Cup with a gold medal.

The competition took place from October 26 to November 1 in Kuala Lumpur.

There were two groups, one containing Asian Grand Masters teams who were competing for their third Asia Cup, and the other an invited group which included England Grand Masters (Over-60s).

Malaysia, having won their group to become Asian Cup winners, and England, who won their group, competed in the play-off for the Pacific Rim SAS Cup. England won 3-0. “The club would like to congratulate Nick on this fantastic achievement,” said Chris Battye.
