The round-robin competition, held at held at Redbridge Sports Centre, Barkingside, Essex, on Wednesday March 9, pitted area Under-11 teams against each other.

The Felsted Preparatory School boys beat six schools to take the trophy.

“This is a tremendous achievement,” said Felsted Preparatory boys’ hockey coach Tim Robertson. “The boys played with a very good shape and our opponents found it difficult to defend against the continuity of our passing.”

Meanwhile, the girls won all five of their matches and impressed their coach, Chris Lee, with their intelligent play on the court.

“The girls passed the ball with skill to create scoring opportunities, rather than holding the ball too long, which can often happen at this age,” she said.
