Shropshire Academy Hockey and Covid 19

Posted by John Beckett on 17 March 2020

With immediate effect all Academy Centre (County) hockey is suspended until at least 15th April 2020.

Please see the link to the England hockey website with more details

However please note that the following dates were in the programme. It is extremely unlikely that these will take place.

19th April 

U13 & U15 tournament at a venue TBA

3rd May

U13 tournament at a venue TBA

We await some more details from the Midlands group as to the possibility of rescheduling these tournaments but there are often problems with pitch availability and clashes with other events. 

The Hockey Development Centres that run in the Summer term will be rescheduled as appropriate.

There is normally an AC Hockey presentation evening, at the end of the season. This is currently scheduled for Fri 26th June.

On a positive note the Girls and Boys U17 Midlands tournaments did take place on Sun 15th March. The boys did extremely well losing, in the last 2 mins of the final, to Derbyshire. The Girls managed to go that one step further with a 1-0 win over Notts, in the final, taking the trophy. These are tremendous results for a small rural county. Congratulations to all involved in the Shropshire AC programme and the schools and clubs that get these players started.

Please follow the health advice of the government and health professionals and stay safe and well.
