The U11A team attended the Leicester Grammar JS Hockey tournament on Wednesday, which was a combination of training courtesy of MT13, and competitive matches. Our girls had their training first, mixed with the other schools and doing a variety of drills in the wind and rain! Luckily it dried up in time for our tournament. The matches were close with attacking play from all of the teams and Spratton testing our defence particularly well. After a busy couple of weeks of trips, tournaments, cross country and normal school life, it was evident that we had some tired legs on the pitch. Despite this the girls dug deep, worked hard and made improvements over the course of their matches, playing particularly well against The Elms, led by captain Bunny. Witham were unbeaten and scored the most points out of all 12 teams, and although no prizes or trophies were given for winning, the girls came away proud of their efforts.
