It’s a great start to the season for Felsted girls’ U13 and U16 hockey teams. The U13s are through to the national final of the IAPs tournament after winning seven out of their eight games in the East tournament. Meanwhile, the U16s are going through to the regionals after their winning performance in the Essex tournament at Redbridge.
The Felsted U16s were crowned the worthy winners of the county title after six consecutive victories, including two 6-0 wins against Brentwood and New Hall. After a total of 24 goals scored without a single one conceded, they proceed to the regional round on 17th November at the University of East Anglia.
Director of Senior Girls’ Hockey, Ms Loren Sherer commented; “It was a fantastic effort from the squad. The whole team played their part and to win all our games without conceding a goal was particularly pleasing. They are an exciting group of players and we are looking forward to the next round of the competition.”
At the East IAPs tournament, the Felsted U13 girls won their first seven matches and only narrowly missing out on their final game. The girls played at a consistently high standard throughout the day, scoring 19 goals and only conceding three. This now qualifies them for the IAPs National Final.
