Men's Premier Handball League: Leaders Hawks face Cambridge

Men’s Premier Handball League leaders NEM Hawks take on Cambridge this weekend, while second-place Nottingham travel to Warrington Wolves.

Third-place London GD meet West London Eagles while Olympia, in fourth, host Carshalton Titans in another Capital-city derby.

Hawks travel to Moulton College to play Cambridge. After losing their opening game of the campaign, Hawks are unbeaten, a record that includes a draw, followed by five straight victories. They face a Cambridge side that will be looking to get back to winning ways after defeat at the hands of bottom side West London Eagles in their last match. Throw-off on Saturday is at 14.30. It is followed by the Women’s Premier League match between the two sides at 14.30 in a great double bill.

Smithills Sports Centre in Bolton is the venue for the clash between Warrington Wolves and Nottingham. Wolves go into the match boosted by their second win of the season after beating Carshalton in their last clash. Nottingham also won in their last encounter, against Olympia, as they put a defeat against Hawks before the Christmas break behind them. They know a win combined with a defeat for Hawks would see them go back to the top of the table. They could also go top of Hawks draw and Nottingham win by more than 11 goals. The match on Sunday throws off at 12.30.

GD and Eagles meet at Leyton Score Centre, also on Sunday. GD suffered just their second defeat of the season in the last round of matches, against Hawks. GD also have an eye on top spot. They would need to combine a win with defeats for Nottingham and NEM Hawks for that to happen. Eagles go into the clash buoyed by their victory over Cambridge in their last game, their first win of the season. Throw-off is at 14.30. It is preceded by the Women’s Premier Handball League clash between the two sides at 12.30 in another great double header.

Early pace-setters Olympia will be bidding to turn around recent form that has seen them lose their last three matches. They face a Carshalton side who, like Olympia, will be searching for their fourth win of the season. Throw-off at Barking Sporthouse is at 15.00 on Saturday. Ahead of that match Olympia take on London Angels in the Women’s Premier Handball League at 13.00 in a festival of handball.
