Gresham's Prep School boys' U13 and U11 sides both won their respective Norfolk Championships and qualified for their Prep Schools National Finals.
Gresham's hosted the East round of the National Prep Schools' Championships. The U11 boys came second overall after a couple of drawn games against Town Close and eventual winners Abbey School (Woodbridge) lowered their overall points total. Second was good enough to qualify for the finals at Clifton, Bristol, in a week's time.
The senior (U13) boys went one better and won all their matches against the major hockey playing schools of the East. They travel to Millfield School in Somerset next week also. Both teams won the Norfolk Mini-Hockey Championship and now go onto the East final round where they get the chance to qualify for the English National (schools and clubs) Championships.
The boys both won all their respective pool games, semi-finals and finals to win the Norfolk title. Callum Mackenzie had an outstanding tournament scoring at least once in every game.
