Mens' Premier Handball League: Leaders Nottingham face Hawks Test

First plays third when Nottingham travel to NEM Hawks in the Men’s Premier Handball League this weekend.

London GD face Olympia in a Capital-City derby, while Warrington Wolves play Cambridge, and Carshalton Titans take on West London Eagles in another all-London game.

Nottingham and Hawks are both in excellent form. Nottingham have won their last four matches to sit top of the standings. Hawks lost their opener, since when they have won four and drawn one. Victory for Hawks could see them go top. A win for Nottingham would put space between them and another pace-setter. The game will see two of the men’s Premier Handball League’s most prolific scorers go head-to-head, in Francisco Pereira of Nottingham, and Harry Morley of Hawks, in what promises to be an exciting clash. Throw-off at Oldham Leisure Centre on Sunday is at 13.30. It is followed by the Women’s Premier Handball League match between Hawks and Reading Lionesses at 15.30.

GD are second in the table, ahead of Hawks on goal difference, and are also eyeing top spot. They have won two and drawn one of their last three matches since a narrow defeat to Nottingham in week three. Olympia, in fourth, have struggled for consistency in the last few matches with one win, two draws and a defeat. Throw-off at Leyton Score Centre is at 14.30 on Sunday. Ahead of that match is the Women’s Premier Handball League clash between the two sides in a great double bill.

Warrington Wolves sit in seventh place in the league, with just one win to their name so far this season. The North-West side will want to turn that form around and start climbing the table. They face a Cambridge side who got back to winning ways last time out, after four matches without a victory, when they beat Olympia in a thriller. Throw-off at Smithills Sports Centre in Bolton is at 13.30.

Eagles currently prop up the Men’s Premier Handball League table, with just a solitary draw to their name. They face a Titans side who started the season well, following promotion, with two wins in their first three matches. Since then they have lost three games on the bounce. Throw-off at Barking Sporthouse on Sunday is at 15.00. It is preceded by the Women’s Premier Handball League meeting between London Angels and West London Eagles.

Get down to a Premier Handball League match and watch the most exciting, action-packed, high-scoring team sport.
