Bristol Grammar School's U13 boys' hockey team qualified for the finals of this year's Independent Schools Hockey Cup, held at Birmingham University on 19 March 2019.
They came up against a very strong Whitgift team in the semi-final. The team played very well, leading 1-0 with ten minutes of the match to go. Whitgift fought back to win 1–3, playing some excellent hockey and went on to win the competition comfortably 5-0 in the final.
The boys picked themselves up well after the disappointment of losing the semi-final and beat King’s Chester in the third/fourth place play-off to claim bronze medals. The team played some excellent hockey and can hold their heads up high after the best-placed finish the School has ever had in this competition. This bodes well for the future with the team having had a taste of what it takes to compete at the very highest level – congratulations to them all.
1–3 L Whitgift (Stevens)
4–1 W King’s Chester (Smith 2, Hunt, Nancekivell)
