On Saturday 3rd July the U14 Girls season concluded with the team being crowned, England Hockey U14 Plate Champions.
The competition saw the U14 girls taking on Matlock, Timperley, Chester and Leeds on route to the final winning 10-0, 9-1, 9-1 and 8-1 respectively. The final’s day, held at Nottingham Hockey Centre saw the Beeston Girls take on Guildford in an exciting but tense 2-1 victory.
The team of sixteen, a mixture of U13 and U14’s was captained by Grace, who unfortunately was unable to play in the final; however Isabelle and Ella took over the helm.
This result was due to the hard work & commitment from each individual player and the dedication of coaches and management. The team stuck by an important team ethos along the way and the group camaraderie was fantastic. The success of the team would not have been possible if it was not for those squad members within the extended team who all played a vital part along the way.
Thank you to all the coaches, managers, parents, umpires and volunteers that have supported the squad this season.
Well done girls, we are so proud of you all!
