Many congratulations to our U16 team, who worked brilliantly together to reach the semi finals of the County Championship. This is the best result Downe House has had at this level and given that the majority of the team is still in the U15 side, the future looks bright!
Zara Chamberlain, Autumn Davies and Lulu Clark all scored impressively – Lulu in particular, beating one of the top 8 U16 keepers in the country.
Sarah Bergstrom played a crucial marking role, Amelia Binns, Daisy Padovan and Katie Maloney provided some fine defending and Charlotte Orpen and Iona Jardine prevented many goals. Captain Becx Radford led by example with hard work and commitment.
“The team all contributed so much to this historic day. It was full of heart-stopping, memorable moments and they came agonisingly close to making the regionals. An outstanding performance.”
