Hockey Team Retains North Shropshire Title

At a recent North Shropshire under 16 Boys Hockey Tournament, Ellesmere College returned victorious following a successful series of matches against local schools. The annual tournament, held this year at the Marches School, saw the Ellesmere College Hockey Club secure comfortable wins against The Marches and Lakelands Schools to win the tournament without conceding a single goal.

Tom Hurst, Master in Charge of Boys' Hockey at Ellesmere, says; "Having won the tournament for the first time last year it was fantastic that we retained our title. The boys worked exceptionally hard and put in three great performances. To go through the whole afternoon without conceding a single goal shows that training on astro-turf has been a massive benefit to our players. The aim is to now move up a level and gain a place as one of the top Shropshire schools for Boys' hockey".
