U14 Area champions

On a glorious sunny day we travelled to a beautiful part of Cheshire for the conclusion of our England Hockey competition. We played three very competitive games, starting with a draw against Lichfield, quickly followed by a match versus a very strong Telford side who had already beaten Chester 3-0. We went behind in the first half, but put the dogged Jack to mark their play-maker in the second half, Ollie and George duly took advantage to both score and we held on to a 2-1 victory.

Two hours enjoying the sunshine and cakes before our final match was perhaps not the best preparation for a game we needed to win against the hosts, who we’d lost to narrowly earlier on in the season. But the boys played brilliantly and went one up through Ollie, then Sam saved a flick before George scored again. Five very nervous minutes later Chester scored, but fortunately with only a minute to play, and we held on to win and become the area champions.

Every member of the squad played their part: resolute defending by Oscar, Reuben, Edward and Daniel; great midfield battles fought and won by George, Ollie, Rohan, Eddie and Jack; and Sam and Alex working well together up front to worry defences. Sam had a great day in goal and deservedly was voted man of the matches by his peers.

Thank you to Jonno for giving up his Sunday to umpire, and thank you to all the parents who supported the boys.
