BORLASE HOCKEY IS ONE OF THE LEADING SCHOOL HOCKEY CLUBS IN THE COUNTRY WITH OVER 200 MEMBERS, 7 CURRENT JUNIOR INTERNATIONALS AND RECENT SUCCESS IN INDOOR AND OUTDOOR NATIONAL COMPETITIONS.
The club has achieved a record number of members in the 2016-2017 season with over 260 and 20+ coaches, who all work closely with the full-time Director of Hockey. Three regional quarter-finalists, ten regional qualifiers and four county champions have contributed to the success of the club on a team front this past year, and on an individual level, a number of players have been selected for County, Performance Centre and Futures Cup squads, plus three have been selected to represent their country at U16 and U18 level.
Nathan Monk works as our new Director of Hockey as we continue to keep Borlase Hockey moving forward, while maintaining the fantastically strong link with Marlow Hockey Club. For more details about Hockey please email email@example.com.
SUMMARY OF 2016-2017:
The U12 girls, U13 girls, U14 boys and U16 boys all become County Champions whilst losing only two games between them– amazingly the combined stats are as follows:
The U12 boys, U14 girls and U18 girls also qualified for the regional rounds by finishing second in the county tournament, whilst the U13 boys and U16 girls finished third in tightly contested county rounds.
The U18 boys experienced a successful season with a last 16 place in the National Cup, losing out to eventual winners Whitgift, and a silver medal in the Plate at St. George’s Sixes, losing one game out eleven during normal time.
Individually, Freya Bull and Imre Gerrits have represented England U18s and Mila Welch has been selected for the England U16 squad. At a senior level, past students Livvy Paige and Jack Turner have both made their full international debuts which is a fantastic achievement at 21 and 19 years old respectively.
Indoor hockey thrived once more with one regional semi-finalist and three regional qualifiers. The U18 boys lost to eventual National Champions Kingston Grammar School and the U18 girls lost a close game against local rivals Beaconsfield High in the semi-finals.
Overall, a season with plenty of promise and success on a number of fronts but with lots of scope for improvement. We are already looking forward to next season.
