On Wednesday 6 November a 1st XI depleted by injury and illness took part in the U18 Berkshire County Cup.
In a tough pool, the girls played some excellent hockey, with two good wins against Kendrick (2-0) and Newlands (1-0) to set up a match against Wellington. Despite their efforts, the team couldn’t quite keep Wellington at bay and lost 0-3. Fortunately, their earlier strong performances put the team through to the semi-finals as pool runners up.
The semi-final against Claires Court saw some excellent defending from Brenda Njiru, Molly Adams and goal keeping from Victoria Crewe-Turrell. It was almost enough to see the team through to the finals, but a last minute goal ended this chance.
The whole team were outstanding all day and this performance is certainly promising for the future!
