The Perse School

Under 18 Indoor Hockey team runners-up in County Championship

15 Nov 2011

The boys' U18 indoor hockey team finished runners-up in the recent County Championships losing to a very talented Thomas Deacon Academy team in the final.

The team led by Joe Sherrington-Scales finished top of their group with wins over Kings Peterborough and Wisbech Grammar School. They qualified for the semi-finals and won a hard fought match 2-1 against Newport Grammar School.

Thomas Deacon Academy also won their group and swept aside Wisbech Grammar in the semi-final and looked tough opposition for the final. After initial exchanges, The Perse were holding their own but some sloppy defending allowed Thomas Deacon to make the decisive breakthrough.  Despite The Perse pulling a goal back, the opposition proved too strong eventually winning 4-1.

The squad:

Sevie Hurrell, Joe Sherringon-Scales (Capt), Will Wright, Oli Richer, Harry Tyler, Miles Taylor, Josh Gray, Alex Mackaness, Hugo Batley, Jack Martin.
