This weekend saw a variety of differing formats of internal fixtures. The Senior hockey players played in two squads picked by Mr Williams and Mr Watts. Despite being 3-1 down at the break, Mr Williams’ team came back to win 4-3 with a Tom Mackay goal in the last couple of minutes of regulation time. The U15s played out a 3-3 draw, which saw the game head to a sudden death shootout. Alfie Boyd held his nerve to take his team to victory. In the U14s, honours were even as the two sides finished 2-2. The U13s played a round robin tournament with mixed teams across the year group. In the U12s it was a Hockey World Cup, with Germany finishing top of the 6 team pool.


It was brilliant to see both house competitions again well supported this week. There were some superb fixtures in U16 and Senior age groups to conclude the tournament. In the U16s Callender pipped Chavasse to 5th, while Leicester thumped Wilkinson in the 3rd/4th. It was Maltby though who took the title with a well deserved 1-0 win over Walker.

In the Senior competition, Maltby beat Leicester on penalties to finish in 5th. Henry Pretorius scored a later winner as Walker edged Wilkinson 3-2 in the 3rd/4th. However, the real drama was yet to come. A controversial offside goal, not spotted by the linesman, saw James Coles give Chavasse the lead with less than 5 minutes to play. However, Callender bounced back to equalise and take the game to penalties. A superb set of sudden death penalties saw the scores level at 7-7 before Tom Cawthorne scored the decisive spot kick that saw Chavasse take the title.

On Saturday, internal fixtures were also played across the two age groups. The senior fixtures finished 5-0 and 5-3 with Matthew Parker scoring a hat-trick. The U16 fixture ended in a 4-4 draw. Mr Tuck is researching specialist goalkeeper coaches ahead of next season!


House netball has completed its qualification stage now and goes into its final ranking stages today. Wilkinson are in pole position to take the title, but all is to play for in this afternoon’s competition. Good luck to all those involved.

Pre-season dates ahead of next term have now been published, so please check the sports website. Players of all abilities are welcome, so please make sure you know when your year group are training.
