Clacton Hockey Club made their supporters sweat before securing promotion thanks to a dramatic victory against Southend, in NE14 Hockey East Men’s League division three south-east on Saturday.

They were 3-1 down with 20 minutes to go, before fighting back to win 4-3.

And their comeback made it a promotion-winning celebration as Essex University - the only side who could catch them - lost to champions Chelmsford.
