Yesterday was the U18 and U16 Boys’ Avon County Championships, hosted at KES and Prior respectively.
Head of Hockey, Mr Jackson, reports the following:
U18 The skill level, work ethic, teamwork that was on display was amazing. We simply blew KES apart, and playing back to back did a professional job on Monkton. The boys are aware that they face sterner tests, but as good a display of indoor hockey that I have seen from a Prior Park team. The England Hockey West Regional tournament is on Sunday 2 December at Wellington School, Somerset.
Results Prior Park 9 - KES 2 (Aspray x2, Brookes, Prentice x2, Tamang x2, West, Wortelhock) Prior Park 3 – Monkton 1 (Aspray, Prentice, Tamang)
Squad David Aspray, Jake Brookes, Tom Downes (GK), Archie Parson, Will Prentice, Will South, Tonir Tamang (Capt), Tom West, Adam Wortelhock
U16 A first indoor tournament for many of these boys, a first indoor tournament where they have played together and for three U15 boys playing a year young and three U14 boys playing two years young. Our performances based on organised and structured defence, gave us the platform to dominate the County tournament against good KES and Monkton teams. Each boy contributed, and are beginning to fall in love with the short form of the game. The England Hockey West Regional tournament is on Sunday 9 December at Wellington School, Somerset.
Results Prior Park 3 – Monkton 0 (Dymond, Hudson, Knight) Prior Park 4 – KES 0 (Dymond x2, Howells, Hudson)
Squad Will Butters, Seb Crawford, Rob Dymond (Capt), Jack Haythornthwaite, Will Howells, Niall Hudson, Will Knight, Alejandro Martin Giron (GK)
Congratulations to all involved and we wish you the best of luck at the Regionals.
