Sports Report week commencing 8th January

15 Jan 2020


Hockey, Rugby
It has been an excellent week for all involved in the hockey and rugby fixtures.

On Thursday, the U13s played King Edward’s Birmingham with strong performances from both teams. On Tuesday the U14A team played in a County tournament, despite great sportsmanship and teamwork from the squad they were unfortunately narrowly beaten in all games.
On Wednesday the upper school teams played, with the first XI beating Bablake 3-0, third XI beating them 2-0 and our U16 XI deafeating King Henry VIII Coventry with a score of 3-1. Outstanding performances from all boys involved.

The lower school rugby teams were in action this week against King Edward’s VI Five Ways with wins by five of the six teams.  A special mention to the U14A team who scored 59 points whilst keeping their opponents pointless.

Next week, all rugby teams are in action on Saturday against Old Swinford Hospital whilst the netball teams are playing away in Stratford on Wednesday.
