U13 Hockey

The team recently travelled up to Harrogate Grammar

(venue was changed from Thirsk because of snow!), where they played some very strong opposition including Harrogate Grammar (the eventual winners and by far the strongest team). Unfortunately Birkdale U13 will not be progressing any further in the competition.

They played Harrogate Grammar first and lost 5 – 1 but conceded 3 goals in the first 5 minutes (the first goal inside 10 seconds!). The second half was much more even and this was what impressed most about the group – they listened and responded well and learnt very quickly developing as a team throughout the afternoon. They played 4 games in all; won one and lost three.

 A great afternoon of enjoyable hockey!
