King’s Ely through to third round of England Hockey competition


Friday 16 November 2018



King’s Ely has qualified for the third round of the England Hockey National Schools Tier 1 Competition.

King’s Ely’s 1st XI girls played against Wellingborough School in the second round of the fiercely-contested competition on 8 November. The girls qualified for that round after beating Stamford High School 3-0 in the preliminary round last month, with all three goals scored by Rebecca Daniel.

In the match on 8 November, King’s Ely were 4-1 down up until the last eight minutes of the game. With sheer grit and determination, and Rebecca on her usual top form, the girls fought back to win 5-4 – with Rebecca scoring all five goals.

Head of Girls’ Games at King’s Ely, Chanre Bond, said: “I am extremely proud of the entire team and the way in which the girls never gave up. The delight and happiness on their faces after the match was one I will never forget. Well done to all of you, you are a super team!”

The girls have qualified for the third round of the England Hockey National Schools Tier 1 Competition, which is due to take place before the end of the Michaelmas Term.

At King’s Ely, we are passionate about sport and firmly believe that all students should enjoy a wide a range of sporting experiences, whilst at the same time making the most of opportunities to excel. We also support our students in sports they pursue outside school, with many going on to represent their counties, regions, and, in some cases, their country.
