Winchester U10’s Crowned County Champions

March 28th, 2010,

Winchester Under 10’s were crowned Hampshire champions on Sunday and now go through to represent the county at the South U10 Mini-Hockey Championship 2009/10.

In another excellent team performance, following their recent success at the John Wright Tournament hosted by Havant, they won all their group games against Romsey, Aldershot & Farnham and Fareham, scoring nine and conceding none.  They then faced Trojans in the semi-final who they beat 4-1, setting up the final against Havant.  In a very even final, Winchester scored early and defended a series of strong attacks to win 1-0.

The team now goes onto the South U10 Mini-Hockey Championships in early May at Surbiton Hockey Club where they will play against the best teams from Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Kent, Middlesex, Oxfordshire, Surrey and Sussex.
