U11 Hockey champs
Tuesday, 26 April 2016
On Tuesday 19th April the Monkton U11 Boys' Hockey team were crowned West of England Champions! It was a fantastic achievement by the boys and thoroughly deserved after all their hard work. On finals day, the team was unbeaten and only conceded one goal all day. On the way to the final they beat Millfield, The Downs Malvern and St Peter's Prep from Devon. They defeated Dean Close 1-0 in the final and proved to all that they are one of the best teams in the country for their age.
This put the cherry on the top of a remarkable season. County Champions, West of England Champions, 7th in the country at IAPS National Finals. Played 30, won 24, drew 4 and only lost 2, scoring 64 goals. Individually they have improved as players and as a team they kept getting better. It has been a season to remember. Well done to all the boys. Monkton hockey is in a very exciting place with lots to look forward to.
