Match report: U13 hockey v Norwich High School for Girls

Our U13 hockey team got their season under way today with a 2-0 win away against the Norwich Girls’ High School. First to score was Ruby H, in her debut match for the team,  with the second goal coming from Rachel Y. Player of the match was awarded to Ruby.  The afternoon offered a great coaching experience for the girls, with a chance to hone their technical skills and match play. Well done, everyone!
