The Y3/4 Quicksticks A team represented South Tyneside in the Tyne and Wear Finals at The Parks Sports Complex in North Tyneside. The event started with an inspiring hockey demonstration by two England Under 21 players- Rhys Smith and Jack Turner.
When the action got underway, St. Bede’s played some exciting hockey against the best sides in the region. The highlight was the 4-2 victory over Shiney Row (Champions of Sunderland). This was a particularly memorable match for Jude Hill, who scored all four of our goals. It was also great to see our youngest player Saul Connor score a wonderful individual goal against eventual winners Fellside (Gateshead).
While we missed out on a place in the semi-finals ourselves; I was delighted with the commitment shown by all of our players who kept going to the final whistle in each game. All of the St. Bede’s players were proud to wear the orange of South Tyneside on the day. Well done to Will Watson (Captain), Jude Hill, Lucas Britton, Saul Connor, Darcey Tullis and Keira Murphy.
