Congratulations to the U16 Boys’ Hockey team who finished 3rd at the England Hockey U16 Finals at the Lee Valley Olympic Park yesterday.
Their first match was a closely contested match against Dean Close School, the boys showed great spirit in the game and never gave up but were beaten by the better side on the day. They then went on to play a very talented St Lawrence College side in the 3rd place playoff. The boys were excellent through out and were deserved winners. This type of game is notoriously difficult to prepare for after the disappointment of the defeat in the first match but the PGS boys were determined to finish the season on a high.
This result places them 3rd in the country in the England Hockey Tier 1 Cup and is something the boys should be very proud of. Well done too to the coaches, Mr Leach and Mr Faulkner.
Thank you to all those who took the time to travel up to Lee Valley to support the team over the two days.
