Junior joy for Wycombe Hockey Club
WYCOMBE Hockey Club have not been short of junior triumph in recent years and this season’s vintage appear well-set to continue the tradition after the U16 girls won a place in the National Indoor Championships.
They emerged unbeaten from the Regional Finals in Surrey on Sunday and will now take on the best in the country for the national crown in Wolverhampton next month.
They won five of their six games in the five-a-side format, but were pipped to the title on goal difference by Surbiton.
The two sides had drawn 2-2 earlier in the competition, but Surbiton edged them by just two goals.
Wycombe won’t be too worried though.
They thrashed Havant 4-0 in their opening game and after holding Surbiton Wycombe went on to register victories against Trojans, East Grinstead, Wimbledon and Horsham, 4-0, 3-1, 5-0 and 5-0 the scores respectively.
Beth Wagge scored eight of her team’s goals, with Ellie Wheeler adding seven more.
Also on target on the day were Abby Wagge (2), Anna Henderson (2), Emily Hacking (2), Rosie Campion and Sophia Fallon.
Meanwhile, Wycombe’s first team also had a weekend to remember with a 5-1 triumph over Witney.
Chris Goodchild scored twice, with Matt Bilsland, Chris Bollom and Liam Sanford also on target.
Wycombe 2s were beaten 1-0 by Ashford but Wycombe 3s were too strong for Gerrards Cross with John Reid (2), Aran Johal and Jack Tebb scoring in a 4-2 triumph.
Richard Bibby and Owen Hunt scored as Wycombe 5s won 2-0 against West Hampstead 8s while Peter Grimmett claimed a consolation for Wycombe 6s in a 2-1 reverse to Amersham & Chalfont.
In the Mercian League, Cameron Ryall won the game for Wycombe U16s against Reading.
