Equinox Recycling Supports Marden Russets Hockey Club


At Equinox Recycling, we believe we have an important role to play in supporting local communities, as well as the environment. We actively get involved in local causes that are important to us and have recently extended our support to Marden Russets Hockey Club.

Although our main depot is based in Tonbridge, Marden is where our humble journey began – and is still home to our head office today – so we are really pleased to be supporting a club which offers opportunities for both personal development and teamwork within the local community.

Marden Russets is a village-based club, offering hockey to a wide range of ages and abilities. From October through to March, they field 5 men’s teams, 2 ladies’ teams and a vibrant junior section which educates children across age groups ranging from U8 to U16, with regular competitions from U12 upwards.

Equinox Recycling has donated an 1100ltr wheelie bin to Marden Russets for use at the club’s astroturf pitch and clubhouse throughout the 2016/17 season.



Russets’ senior teams continue to have a good season on the pitch, with the Men’s 1st XI and Ladies’ 2nd XI both leading their respective divisions, and the other teams clear of relegation danger.


On Saturday 19th November, the Men’s 1st XI comfortably swept aside Canterbury’s 4s to retain their 4 point lead – next week’s game at their nearest rivals, Burnt Ash, promises to be a cracker.


The Men’s 2nd XI were awarded a 5-0 walkover, as Ashford belatedly conceded the game, whilst the 4th XI were frozen off – a frustration for Paul Hamlyn & the team captains, as this was the best availability we’d had all season.


With both clubs’ 2nd XIs having no fixture, the 3rd XI’s local derby with Sutton Valence 3s saw two very strong sides battle out a 2-2 draw, Russets equalising late on from a penalty corner.


The Ladies’ 1st XI returned to winning ways, with a narrow victory over Sevenoaks, and the 2nd XI suffered their first defeat of the season at Burnt Ash – hopefully there’s not a pattern there!



We wish Marden Russets Hockey Club all the best for the 2016/17 season.
