The Oratory U14 Hockey Team become Berkshire Plate Winners
The Oratory U14 Hockey team were delighted to be crowned Berkshire Schools’ Plate Winners this month at The Berkshire Schools’ Hockey Tournament, which took place at Bradfield College.
The team played 7 games against Downe House, Holme Grange, Holyport, St Mary’s, The Holt, Wellington College and The Marist winning 4, drawing 1 and losing 2. In the last game they ran out comfortable winners against the Marist School, securing their place as winners of the Plate Competition.
Victoria Watson, Head of Hockey, says “The girls were a real credit to the school, showing great teamwork and sportsmanship throughout the tournament. It was a great day out and the girls have learnt a lot from the experience. We look forward to representing Berkshire at the Tier 2 South Central Tournament next month.”
Jimmy Dodworth, Oratory U14 Hockey Coach says “The U14s were worthy winners of the tier 2 competition. They work extremely hard off the ball and make it very difficult for other teams to play hockey. They are a pleasure to coach.”
