Congratulations to our U13 and 1st Hockey teams who both played incredibly well to each secure the national title in the Independent School Hockey Cup.
Mr Giles, Head of Hockey, gives a run-down of the cup finals:
Trinity 1st team
The team won their opening game 2-0 v Rossall School, with Drew Gormley getting on the score sheet for the first time this season. They then played Felsted Boys in their second group game to compete for a place in the final. Trinity won the match comfortably 3-0, with Joe Hutchings scoring a fantastic goal and Gabriel Pattison-Binns a brace.
In the final Trinity met familiar opposition Alleyn’s. The Alleyn’s team had proved tough opponents twice already in the season and, although Trinity had won on both previous occasions, the team knew anything could happen in a final. Not to disappoint, Trinity got off to a fantastic start and didn’t ease up. There was some impressive Hockey on display, capped off with five excellent Trinity goals. Kamran Khans quick thinking made something out of nothing as he buried the ball in the bottom corner. Joe Hutchings again found the back of the net with a thunderous finishing and celebration to match.
A brilliant way for the team to finish off their time playing for Trinity as national hockey champions, well done!
The U13s had a slightly longer route to the final, as they had to play four group games and won all four, with final scores as below:
The team then played the King’s School, Chester, again in the final which finished 1-1 after full time, despite the best efforts of the team to have the game wrapped up in regular time.
Two excellent strokes from Captain Ed Morris and Tobore Agbandje alongside some outstanding goalkeeping from Dylan Lawson ensured the Trinity victory. Matthew Jaques deserves special mention for a truly outstanding display and Luke Timm and Dylan Robson also both showed brilliant goal scoring instincts throughout.
Congratulations on a deserving win.
