Over the past few weeks, Cranleigh pupils have succeeded in national hockey across the country, many of which winning gold and silver medals and becoming national champions.

In the Blue Riband U18 Boys final, Barney B., Sammy D. and Toby K. played for Guildford against Repton. Repton scored just before half time but two short corners by Sammy halfway through the second half gave Guildford the lead. Repton scored two more in the last nine minutes to leave Guildford with the silver medal.

In the Boys U16 Supra League final, Dexter G. represented Surbiton. Beating Repton 3-1, Wotton-under-Edge 4-1, before a 1-1 draw with Trojans, meant they topped their pool. In the final, Surbiton were playing City of York who scored just after half-time. Surbiton then equalised with just 5 minutes to go, so to penalty shootouts. York missed their first and Surbiton scored four on the trot. With York missing their fifth, Surbiton were crowned national champions.

In the U16 Girls Tier 2 National Final, Izzy B. and Luisa C. cruised to a comfortable 6-0 victory for Guildford over Chester, with Izzy scoring a hat trick. Scoring at regular intervals they proved just too strong for their opponents.

In the U14 boys final Alex B., Zach D., Josh H. and Jacob M. had a close encounter for the Guildford Panthers against Wimbledon. Ahead after 10 minutes they had a number of chances to finish off the game only for Wimbledon to equalise with 3 minutes to go. Wimbledon scored their first shootout before missing their second, as did Guildford. Wimbledon then missed two before scoring their last leaving Guildford needing to score their fifth and last penalty which they did, to become National Champions.

In the U14 Boys Tier 2 Plate Final Isaac C., Henry P. and Oscar P. played for Guildford Jaguars recording a thumping 7-0 victory over Old Silhillians with captain Issac and Oscar both scoring a couple of goals.

Congratulations to all of them.

Mr Richard Organ, Director of Hockey
