Banbury’s Tyson Nunneley Grabs Gold & and the Youngsters Build for the Golden Future

Banbury Hockey Club’s very own Tyson Nunneley grabbed the O35s Hockey World Cup gold medal with the team at the weekend by beating South Africa in the final in a very tight 1-0 victory at the impressive Nottingham Hockey Centre in front of a packed crowd. They reached the final after a nail-biting penalty shootout in the semi-final which went to sudden death against the eventual bronze medallists, Ireland. After 2 weeks of tough group stage hockey playing against Sri Lanka, Spain, and Ghana, and then Ireland, England and Nunneley reached the final and brought the world cup trophy home against South Africa.

And if that wasn’t enough for Banbury HC after their men’s 1s national cup final win at the national stadium and coming joint top of the South Central Premiership League – their 2 talented 1 st team youngsters attended the England Hockey Diploma in Sporting Excellence Programme at Loughborough where future talent is developed over a series of intense practical and theoretical learning courses.

Men’s 1s manager, Andy Camp said: “what a great day for Tyson and England Hockey – a fantastic but gruelling tournament played against teams from all over the world and bringing hockey home with the gold medal. At the same time as our senior star getting all the accolades, we have our talented 1 st team youngsters Sam Chadbourne and Jacob Buckner Rowley going through an elite programme to help them become our hockey stars of the future. Hockey is looking golden for the future of Banbury HC!”
