College pupils help clinch Hockey Championship
On Sunday 23rd April, Bishop’s Stortford College pupils played for the powerful Hertfordshire U15 team in the Eastern County Hockey Championships. Coach Nick Mulvaney chose just 16 players, from a squad of two teams, to compete in the County Finals - five of whom were from the College: Josh Brown, Ben Brooks, Joe Power, Henry Marsden and Josh Cawthray-Stern.
This was the second year in a row these boys have played a part in winning the Eastern Counties Hockey Championships (Hertfordshire beat Essex in last year’s final). This year the team won 4 games and drew two in the tournament which was held at Norwich Hockey Club where Henry scored all three goals in the match against Essex.
As part of their preparation for the Championships, the College boys participated in a hockey tour to German National Champions, Rot Weiss-Koln, during the Easter holidays. All five boys acquitted themselves admirably against high quality opposition and this certainly helped contribute to their U15 County team’s success.Published: May 2 2017
