PUBLISHED: 09:13 28 December 2017
The under-U13 girls' hockey team at Gresham's has had one of the school's most successful seasons in years.
The team travelled to Ipswich for the Independent Association of Prep Schools regional qualifying tournament and beat Framlingham College in the final.
The girls then travelled to Repton School to compete in the national finals and only lost one match in the group stage of the competition, to the eventual winners Millfield School.
The team then competed at the Girls’ Norfolk Schools In2Hockey Championships where they also qualified for the National finals. This was the first time in 15 years that a Gresham’s Prep girls’ hockey team had reached this stage. The team finished second overall, ensuring their place in the national finals, which will take place in Nottingham in May.
Captain Effie Bowley has been invited to attend U15 trials at the England Hockey Bury Performance Centre.
