U16 Essex Hockey Title
Our U16 girls’ hockey team has become the U16 Essex Champions following last Wednesday’s (12 September) tournament held at Redbridge Sports Centre.
The team, led by Captain Harriet Wood, enjoyed a clean sweep of six victories during which they scored a total of 17 goals, and conceded just one! Games played were as follows: v Coopers’ Coborn 2-0, v Forest 4-0, v Chigwell 5-1, v New Hall 3-0 and v Brentwood 3-0. Notable performances came from Emilia Nygaard-Parsons, Grace Kumar and Harriet Wood, all of whom were superb. The tournament represented the first outing together for the girls who have had little time to practice since returning to school from the summer break.
A delighted Coach and Head of Girls’ Hockey at Bancroft’s, Jo Fryer Green, said, “I’ve never been to an Essex Championship where a team has totally dominated as we did last Wednesday. The passing of our team was outstanding and we played with great pace and flair.
The work ethic of this team is also excellent; they work for each other and respect each other.”
This is a very exciting team to work with!Jo Fryer-Green, Head of Girls’ Hockey
