U17 Boys and Girls great performance at Midlands tournament

Posted by John Beckett on 17 March 2020

On what may have been the last Sunday of Hockey for a while the Midlands Counties Tournaments for U17 Boys and Girls squeezed in to the Calendar on Sunday 15th March 2020  

The U17 Boys squad had a tough first match losing 0-1 to Derbyshire but then posting a 2-1 win over Leics and a 1-0 win over Warks. The final was a replay against Derbyshire with Shrops losing 0-1 to Derbyshire in the last 2 mins. A very entertaining final and top effort by all the U17 lads. Not bad for little Shropshire. 

The U17 Girls Midlands County tournament saw them go that one step further, Shrops convincingly winning their pool, with a 4-0 win over Warks followed by a 5-0 win against Worcs. Then followed a controlling 1-0 win against Derbys in the semi-final. In the finals against Notts a well taken solitary goal by Megan Pennell gave the Shropshire side the win and title. Coach Chris Prosser said this was a really top day for Shropshire with good performances all over the park. The coach placed the emphasis on performance over result and this led to the win.


The Yellow Shirts of Shropshire are proudly worn by all players and these fantastic results for a small rural county and a tribute to all involved in the Shropshire Academy Centre (County) programme and the schools and clubs that get these players started.
