U16s Hockey squad crowned East Champions and set for the National Finals
The U16s hockey squad from Stamford School, who were crowned East Champions last week, are through to the England Hockey Schools Championships national finals.
With a 5-0 win against The Leys and a 3-0 win against The Perse in a terrific final demonstrating strong skill, the U16s Stamford School hockey squad gained automatic qualification to the England Hockey Schools Championships national finals. The U16s qualified for the East Regional Finals at the end of February winning four games out of four, scoring 16 goals and conceding none in the process. They are clearly a very capable team.
Brendan Morris, coach, was full of praise for the team saying, “This achievement is testament to their efforts, dedication and willingness in hockey but more importantly, doing the hard yards for the team. To score 24 goals and keep six clean sheets is utterly fantastic. The team’s aim was to get to the Nationals and they have not wavered from this aim. I challenge the team now to go for gold at the next stage!”
