The 1st XI boys’ hockey team started the season well by winning the Padfield Trophy at the begining of the Lent Term. Bromsgrove, Millfield, Warwick, Queen’s CollegeTaunton and Clifton all took part in the early season tournament. It was great to see all the teams improve during the afternoon and the overall standard of hockey was excellent. The boys’1st XI won all of their matches without conceding a goal, whichwas agreat start to what will hopefully be another memorable hockey season at Dean Close.
