Hockey End of Season Reports

End of 2018 – 2019 Season Hockey Report

Fantastic achievements were made this year with 4 teams reaching Ulster Quarter finals. The 1st XI reached the final of The Belfast Telegraph Schools’ Cup and narrowly lost to Banbridge Academy 2-1. In the League the 1stXI and 2ndsXI won their league. The seconds never having lost this title since the league began. The Boys’ 1st XI reached the Quarter-final of the Prior Shield.

The 2b’s grew in confidence as the season went on and have developed into quality players while reaching the semi-final of the Gibson Cup. The 3s reached the semi-final of the 4th XI cup but narrowly lost. Our U14s reached the Ulster Junior Plate Final with the first half being extremely closely contested before again we lost on run ins against Banbridge Academy. This can only be positive for the years to come. The majority of these players will step into the senior panel for the upcoming season.

All of our junior teams had a fantastic season with some excellent results against outstanding opposition. U13As had a phenomenal season with only 1 loss throughout the season. They fought some hard-battles in certain games but showed great determination and sportsmanship throughout.

What an enthusiastic bunch of year 8s arrived at our doors in September. A wonderful set of girls keen to get involved in school life and represent the school. At this age group we play 8 a side and all players play with most matches taking place on Fridays! We all look forward to seeing these girls develop over the next few years.

A huge thank you must be given to all our coaching staff Mr Corry, Zoe Wilson, Dr Rainey, Mrs Wells, Miss Murray, Miss McKinty, Nicola McMillan, Rachel Kerr and Mrs McCullough. It is truly wonderful to have such an amount of ex – players willing to give of their time mainly on Saturday to ensure all our teams are afforded opportunities to play.
