Perse pupils represent Cambridge City in national hockey finals
1 Apr 2014
Seven pupils from The Perse – Zaman Akhter, Hugh Bishop, Ben Brown, Thomas Goldberg, Will Harris, Freddie Perkins and Jamie Bolt – represented Cambridge City Hockey Club over the weekend, in the National Under 16 Hockey Championship Finals, which took place in Wakefield.
Over the course of the season, Cambridge City played 12 matches, winning a staggering 11 of them, putting them in the top eight teams in the country for the weekend’s final. In the finals, Cambridge faced Neston South Wirral, Canterbury, Havant and Surbiton, and some closely contested matches saw Cambridge secure third place in the competition, placing them third nationally, which is an outstanding achievement.
Zaman, Hugh, Ben, Thomas, Will, Freddie and Jamie were a credit to the School and the Cambridge City team, putting in excellent performances not just in the finals, but throughout the season – well done boys!
