Baptism of fire for Grove Menzieshill in first EHL appearance 

Grove Menzieshill`s first appearance at the prestigious EuroHockey League (EHL) in Eindhoven turned out to be a real baptism of fire as they were beaten 12-1 by crack Dutch side AH&BC Amsterdam in the last 16 round. 

It was always going to be a huge challenge for the Dundonians and the quality of the opposition was clear when South African international Justin Reid-Ross opened the scoring from close range in only five minutes.    

Although they had a go from the outset, the Taysiders’ found defensive mistakes were clinically punished by a sharp Amsterdam strike force and they fell five behind at the interval, Reid-Ross scoring a hat-trick. 

However, a golden moment at the start of the second half, Luke Cranney took advantage of some sloppy defending, squared the ball and Jamie Golden brilliantly chipped it over the keeper. 

But it was only a brief respite, Amsterdam increased the tempo and slotted home another seven to complete the scoring, there were hat-tricks for Boris Burkhardt and Mirco Pruijser 

Grove Menzieshill now have to pick themselves up to face the loser of Kampong (Netherlands) and Rot Weiss Koln for crucial ranking points – hardly an easier task than today.
