First XI Hockey Team Win County Shield
Stamford High School’s First XI participated in the Under 18 County Hockey Tournament in Grantham on Wednesday the 7th of October. The tournament comprised of four teams each competing for the chance to represent Lincolnshire at the regional round. Short games meant that scoring quickly was the key objective and this was certainly the case in the game against Bourne Grammar, our main rivals.
The final game against De Aston was pressurised, with winning being the only option. With four goals scored in 18 minutes, Stamford High School emerged victorious, deservedly bringing home the trophy. In all three matches the girls played an important role as they not only rested players but contributed positively themselves. The girls now look forward to representing Lincolnshire in Essex at the beginning of November.
The team consisted of the following girls: G. Bendle (Captain), O. Cliff, E. Hardy, H. Ball, P. Cliff, L. Barnwell, H. Paish, S. Morrow, S. Davies, O. O'Connor, A. Blay, R. Richardson, P. Ash, G. MacDonald, H. Shiels.
