On Saturday, the 1

Both Under 14 A and B teams won emphatically, winning 27-20 and 31-5 at Gloucester. Unfortunately, both Under 13 A and B teams lost: with the A’s losing 40-30 and the Bs struggling, losing 25-5.


A successful week in hockey, with both Under 14 A and B sides extending their unbeaten win this season, over Warwick School. The A’s won a close game 2-1 however the Bs were entirely dominant, winning 6-0. These impressive results were followed up by 3-2, 2-1 and 4-0 victories over the Warwick by the 1st, 2nd and 3rd XI the following day, Wednesday 10th. The 4th XI were involved in a 0-0 stalemate with Bablake School also to round up an unbeaten week for Bishop Vesey Hockey.
