Hockey: U15 Boys Win Sussex County Championship


Bede's Under 15 boys' team won the Sussex County Hockey Tournament last week, scoring twelve goals without conceding one.

After winning their Pool Games against Bishop's Luffa 5-0, Steyning Grammar School 1-0 and Chichester High School 2-0, the U15s claimed a confident 1-0 victory against Hurstpierpoint College in the Semi-Finals before dictating the terms of the final against Ardingly College and winning 3-0.

"Bede's goalkeeper Sam Leonard did not have to make a save across the five Tournament matches such was Bede's dominance," explained Bede's Director of Hockey and ex-England Hockey coach Jon Royce.

Goals came from a number of First Year players including Alistair Orr, Tom Gordon and debutante Alex Targett, as well as Center-Backs Oscar Steward and Lucas Green.


Top scorers included Captain Harry Wootten (photographed above with Sussex Hockey Associate Chairman John Murphy), dominant Left-Midfielder Kyle Mathieson and Tommy Trenaman who, as well as scoring, assisted a number of goals with incisive runs on the right side of midfield.

Bede's Director of Sport and IOC representative Andy Hibbert said of the U15s achievement, "Everyone at Bede's is exceptionally proud of this team. With a number of these boys playing club, county and divisional Hockey, I am also very happy to see that in this side a young Bede's 1st XI is taking shape for the 2015-16 season."
