We were so near to reaching the Kent Games Finals, but just pipped at the post!
St John’s 1’s started out with good wins against St Johns 2’s, Sevenoaks C.P. 1’s and Chevening but were now to face two excellent Amherst sides. The first match against their 2’s proved our downfall, and then to make life totally frustrating the St John’s 1’s produced their best performance 15 mins later against a strong Amherst 1st to draw nil/nil in a match that they very nearly won.
Meanwhile, the St John’s 2’s put in good performances in all their matches and saved their best performance for the match v Amherst 2’s and were just beaten in the last minute.
The standard of Hockey in Sevenoaks is really impressive, and this is due to Sevenoaks Hockey Club, who coach in the primary schools and help their PE staff to continue that coaching. Out of the 96 children who played yesterday, just over 30 are now members of the club and playing in their junior teams.
Well played to the following: Mackenzie; Harvey; George; Rebecca; Elizabeth; Grace; Caitlin; Reuben; Tia; Oliver; Daniel; Amber; Jamie; Kayla; Ketan; Xavier
