South West Regional Hockey Tournament
On Sunday 22 April a South West Regional Hockey Tournament took place at Clifton College, Bristol and many teams were entered.
Year 10 student, Katie Jones is a very keen hockey player and has been playing for Caradon under 16’s and the ladies 2nd team for more than six years. She was recently selected for the Cornwall under 15’s squad.
Going in to the tournament Cornwall didn’t have very high expectations and were seen as the underdogs, but against all odds they came out with a great result beating both Dorset and Gloucester 1-0, drawing with Wiltshire 0-0 and narrowly losing 2-1 to Somerset.
Unfortunately during the second half of the third game Katie took a ball to the forehead, however this gained her team a short corner that would go on to win the game for Cornwall. After a quick trip to Derriford, Katie is thankfully on the mend.
