Under 16 Boys Win Medals in EH National Finals at Lee Valley

The EH Club Championships began in October with about 80 teams competing for a place in the Regional Play-offs. GHC Under 16 Boys won their Local pool to progress to the Regional event that took place in February. Coming first in the Regional event gave them a place in the final eight teams competing over two days at the Home of England Hockey, the Lee Valley Hockey & Tennis Centre in the Olympic Park.

The competition in their Pool was extremely tight. Two draws and a win got the boys a place in the 3rd/4th play-off where they were 2-0 up but then unfortunately let the lead slip. It was all very close and at one point the boys were poised for a place in the final until fortunes changed in the closing seconds of the middle Pool B matches.

The boys had a draw against the second placed team and there was only one goal between them and the bronze medal. Unbelievably tight and a great effort to come 4th in the country.

Well done to Coach Toby Mullins and Captain Josh Powell, to the team who played on the day and indeed to the entire Under 16 Boys Squad who have worked hard all season!
