England under-18 and Great Britain Elite Development Programme (EDP) international Lottie Bingham has signed for the club from Knole Park.

Bingham will become part of Nick Bandurak’s squad for the 2023/24 Vitality Division One campaign and is the sixth addition of a busy summer.

On joining the club, Bingham said: “I am thrilled about the new challenge at Holcombe. It presents an exciting opportunity to team up with new players and coaches in an entirely different competitive environment. I can’t wait to see what our collective efforts can achieve this season.”

Meanwhile, Bandurak added: “Lottie is an extremely talented attacking player with a big future ahead of her. I’m really looking forward to working with her this season and excited to see the impact she can have through such an exciting year.”

The team will compete in the Y1 Championship against Wimbledon, Southgate, ISCA, Hampstead & Westminster and Reading (tickets are available here) before they take on Sevenoaks (2nd September, 5pm) and Surbiton (9th September, 2pm) in pre-season friendlies at Holcombe Park.

Bandurak’s side will begin their league campaign with away fixtures against Southgate (23rd September, 4:30pm) and Surbiton 2s (30th September, 3:30pm). Their first home league fixture of the season is against Sevenoaks on 7th October (5pm).
