Dean Close U11 and U13 girls are Gloucestershire Hockey County Champions. The U11s won their tournament by beating The Richard Pate School and Airthrie School at the end of last week, and the U13s matched that by winning every game at their tournament in the following days. They started out by topping the pool with scores of 3-0, 8-0, 5-0, 7-0, 4-0 and 2-0, taking them into the semi-final where they won 2-0. In the final the girls met a strong Ladies’ College where they managed to convert only one opportunity, a beautiful penalty corner routine, which sealed the title. Both teams will now represent Gloucestershire in the West of England Regional Finals at Easter.
