Hockey Team play first match!

Posted

Our school hockey team have played their first ever match! The students started off with a loss to an experienced Year 8 Tytherington team, before securing a fantastic 0-0 draw against Fallibroome u13s. Considering most of our students were a year younger than their opponents and had never played a hockey match before, this was a brilliant result and they were a real credit to the school. Well done to the following students who took part: Jacob Bates (c), Liam Gurry, Isla Johnstone, Connie Street, Lilly Mathie, Hayden Wain, Diezel Wright, Lloyd Edwards, Lucas Benson and Leighton Wilson.
Eaton Bank Academy’s first ever hockey club was started by Mr Washington, following the visit of former GB Hockey Captain and Olympic Gold medallist Kate Richardson-Walsh. The club meets on Wednesday after school in the sports hall and all new members, including beginners, are welcome to attend!
