A new look U12 Girls B team travelled to Harleston with many of the players getting their first taste of tournament hockey. Although it was a tough day with a draw against Watton and an unlucky defeat to Dereham the highlights, a huge number of positives were to be seen throughout the tournament.
Poppy was superb in the early matches, making save after save, icluding a superb triple save against Magpies. Yllandah (what a goal line clearance!!) and Charlotte both looked increasingly confident in defence and improved their positioning. Sasha and Beatrice worked tirelessly and tracked back well to aid in defence, making important tackles.
Emily and Orla were superb on the wings and increased in confidence with every game, finding space and taking on players.
Although we faced some very strong teams (and miserable weather), all of the players should be delighted with the experience gained and the leaps of improvement they have made.
Overall 1st & 2nd Places:
U10 Girls – 1st Norwich City A, 2nd Magpies A
U12 Girls – 1st Magpies A, 2nd Norwich City A
U10 Boys – 1st Norwich City, 2nd Dereham
