U12 NATIONAL CHAMPIONS

Posted by Nick Hutchinson on 13 May 2018

The Club is immensely proud to report that our Boys U12's have been crowned National Champions at the England Hockey In2Hockey Finals at Nottingham - the first national title at any level in the club's history. Playing with skill, style, commitment, coherence and determination they won all their group games against Old Loughtonians, Harrogate, Guildford and Clifton Robinsons to set up a final with Surbiton who also had a 100% record in their group.

In a pulsating final, Surbiton took the lead but Rugby recovered well to gain a 2-1 lead before a late equaliser took the game to penalty strokes. Five perfect penalities and one save later and the team and huge crowd were celebrating an unprecedented success.

Very many congratulations to Chris, James, Ed, Charlie, Will A, Edgar, Will T, Jamie, Oliver and captain Ben on this outstanding achievement.

Huge congratulations also to coaches Mike Darbyshire and Chris Thomas.

At the same event, our U12 Girls side became the 9th best side in the country, another remarkable achievement and one which made us one of only three clubs in the country to have boys and girls teams at these finals. Well done to Annabel, Jess N, Jess E, Sophie, Ffion, Alice, Lucille, Tilly and Sophia.

For many of these juniors, this achievement is a culimination of a seven years in the REWHC youth programme and there are simply too many people to thank but all would pay tribute to Julia Bower and Rich Allan who laid foundations of our junior set up - the envy to so many - and who were there to witness the culmination of their hard work. To EVERYONE who has played a part, take a bow.
