Hockey stars

Players from a Shropshire school are celebrating after they took top spot at their first county hockey tournament of the year. The Old Hall School’s U11 team will now go forward to represent Shropshire in the Midland Finals at Cannock Hockey Club next month.

They faced tough competition at the county tournament held at Lilleshall Sport Centre, holding off a number of teams including Shrewsbury High Prep, Newdale and Wilfred Owen School to make it through to the next stage.

Head of PE Kat Berns, who joined Old Hall last September from Princethorpe College, said she was very proud of the girls: “They’ve not been playing together long and this was their first county event this year but they pulled out all the stops to really create some fantastic hockey.
“It was a great opportunity for them to take part in an event like this and I know they are all very excited about going forward to represent Shropshire in the finals in March.”
