Both Banbury U14 Mixed A & B Narrowly miss out on Semi Finals

Banbury Under 14’s Girls and Boys came together to enter two sides in the Bicester mixed end of season tournament. Both Banbury A & B Teams played some great Hockey against a very strong set of teams acquitting themselves admirably with a collection of wins draws and losses with both teams just falling short of the semi final places by a single point. What is most encouraging is that the sides were made up of    year 7’s 8’s and 9’s often playing against much older opposition and matching them in all departments…..Banbury are set for a really strong pipeline of Juniors through U14’s to U16’s and so forth and fantastic to see. The tournament was played in great spirit with great support from parents bathed in rare Bicester sunshine which made it all the more enjoyable. Many thanks to Amanda and Cath for helping run one of the sides and Tilly who was both our “A & B” GK playing 8 games !

So that’s it for another season, Banbury U14’s Junior section is in rude health and should be a force to be reckoned with next year !
