Surbiton completed a remarkable unbeaten campaign with a 2-1 win over Canterbury in the Investec Women's Hockey Championship final.

Goals from Julia King and Abi Robinson steered them to the title at the Lee Valley Hockey Centre, with Mel Clewlow getting one back for Canterbury.

"We had to dig deep," said captain Sarah Haycroft.

"We were so keen to get the win for the second year in a row, and that's what carried us through."
