NATIONAL SCHOOLS’ HOCKEY COMPETITION

There are three age group competitions being hosted on our Astro turf between now and the end of this half term. This afternoon it was the turn of the U16 squad to see if we could qualify for the North West semi-final after half term. To do this we had to qualify as winners or runners up of this tournament. The competition did not start well as we lost to Manchester High School 1-0 in our first match. This put pressure on the team as we then had to win our three remaining matches. We beat Sale Grammar School 4-0 : Woodhey High School, Prestwich 2-1 and in our final match against Cheadle Hulme School we won 4-0. With these results we did qualify as runners-up behind Manchester High School.

Well done to Siobhan (captain), Eliza Peters (vice-Capt.) and their team.
