The boys’ hockey teams at King’s College have enjoyed a highly successful season, with several teams progressing through to the latter stages of national competitions.

The King's U16s won their way through to he last eight of the England Hockey Tier One National Competition after beating Sherborne in a tough game. The King’s goals came from Harry Blakey, James Rew and Alex Cunningham, to see the visitors to a 3-2 victory.

In the quarter-finals the King’s Under 16s travelled to play against Dean Close School, who were tough opponents and ran out the 4-1 winners.

The King’s U18 boys are through the final eight in the England Hockey Schools Tier 3 National Competition. They will play their quarter-final match after the Easter holidays to try and gain a place at the finals in London in May.

Clare Hayes, Director of Hockey, said: “This has been a wonderful year for our hockey teams, in particular the boys’ sides. They have all enjoyed considerable success, which is thoroughly deserved after all the hard work they have put in this season.”
