Bancroft’s School’s under-16 girl’s hockey team have been crowned Essex champions following last week’s success at a tournament at Redbridge Sports Centre.

The team, led by captain Harriet Wood, enjoyed a clean sweep of six victories during which they scored a total of 17 goals, and conceded just one.

The girls sealed a 2-0 win against Coopers, 4-0 against Forest, 5-1 versus Chigwell, they also picked up a 3-0 win against New Hall and their sixth win was a 3-0 score line over Brentwood.

Head of Girls’ Hockey at Bancroft’s, Jo Fryer Green, said: “I’ve never been to an Essex Championship where a team has totally dominated as we did.

“The passing of our team was outstanding and we played with great pace and flair.

“The work ethic of this team is also excellent - they work for each other and respect each other.

“This is a very exciting team to work with.”
