King's U12 Hockey squad win County Championships

The King's School's powerhouse under-12 hockey team won the County Championships with a display of cool, calculated, clinical finishing. 

In a superb weekend of sport, the U12 squad was joined by three other King’s squads who became County Hockey Champions: U12s, U13s, U14s and U18s.

Playing in a round robin event against teams from the hosts King's Chester, Birkenhead, The Grange and Alderley Edge School for Girls, the prolific King's U12 team scored 20 goals courtesy of their fluid passing game and incisive attacking play.

Player of the tournament, Grace Taylor, proved the old adage that when the going gets tough, the tough get going, with her best displays of the season coming in the championship event. Strike partner Beth Williams was a superb foil as an aggressive ball winner, intelligent tactician and deft finisher.

Coach Jenny Dunn said: "Our strength in depth across the whole squad has been fantastic all year, which saw us win 12 out of our 13 fixtures."

The full U12 hockey squad (pictured with Grace at the front) was Darcey Baldwin, Tilly Collins, Isabella Hague, Olivia MacCormack, Anoushka Mosca, Grace Taylor, Beth Williams and Annabel Wong (not pictured).
