Boys U13’s & U11’s County Chamionships Sunday, March 8, 2009Posted by mrfolds in Junior Hockey, Juniors, Match Report.
Lansdown were well represented by the boys at both levels of the County Championships held at Dean Close. Their was determined play & tremendous effort against some very strong school sides, who are playing together far more regularly than ourselves. The u13’s were the only side to score against winners Dean Close! All the matches apart from Dean Close were very tight and we were a little unfortunate to lose some of them. They also missed out on fourth place and a medal by one goal, coming fifth. Their results were;
v Cheltenham College Lost 2-0
v Cirencester Won 1-0 (Josh Bradshaw-Howe)
v Cheltenham JHA Lost 1-0
v Yate Lost 1-0
v Gloucester Won 1-0 (Jamie Harper)
v Dean Close Lost 7-1 (Jamie Harper)
well done to;
Ben Holdaway GK, James Farquhar, Oli Ganniclifft, Jamie Harper, Chris Tarling, Josh Bradshaw-Howe, Tristan Murfitt, Charlie Howes, Harry Godwin, Max Ellis.
The U11’s saved their best till last beating Yate 2-0 with goals from Rory Murfitt & Sam Privett to finish 6th out of 7. We fielded a young and inexperienced side who put up a great effort against some older stronger teams. The School teams had the advantage of playing together regularly and having far more match preparation. It was great credit to the boys to win the last match following defeats to Dean Close, Cheltenham College, Pates, Lydney & Cirencester and playing in some horrible cold wet weather. The sun also came out for the final match to make it a happy ending.
Well done to Matthew Holdaway GK, Rory Murfitt, Ollie Palmer, Revie Wood, Ben Jenkins, Sam Privett, Jeremy Fox, Jack Williams, Dexter Lee.
Many thanks to Sid Ellis for managing the U13’s and to Simon Ganniclifft and Karen for umpiring.
