England Hockey Victory

Three Fourth Form girls from St John’s took to the national stage at the weekend, representing a victorious Surbiton Hockey Club at the girls’ England Hockey U14 National Finals. 

Maya Yien (Gloucester House), Lucie Bishop (South House), Emily Roe (South House) and the injured Jodie Brine (Gloucester House) were part of a team that had remained unbeaten going into the tournament. The squad won all of their group games convincingly, with a 4-0 win against Norwich City, a 2-0 triumph over Ben Rhydding and a 3-0 win versus Isca. 

The final match of the day saw the girls up against a strong Cambridge City side, who had also won all of their group games. The St John’s girls made decisive breaks across all areas of the pitch, and Cambridge failed to find a way through the Surbiton defence.

Lauren Moors, Hockey Coach and Assistant Director of Sport at St John’s, commented, “A 3-0 win in the final was fantastic and the girls gave an epic performance. The hockey staff at St John's have been quick to spot other pupils, too, showing early signs of promise and we look forward to working with Surbiton to aid the development of top-quality players."

Emily, Lucie and Maya join Jasmin Cornish and Louisa Bray (Upper Fifth, Gloucester, House), who were also victorious as part of Surbiton’s U16 National-winning side.
