VIDEO: Early goal for student players

Waiting for Video...

Staff faced students in a hockey match at De Aston.

Last time out, staff were beaten 8-7 and this time a goal, after just 11 seconds, put students ahead once more.

And it proved to be a hard fought game, but with great sportsmanship on both side.

The staff’s star striker, Robin Johnson, went off with a pulled hamstring after just 10 minutes, so it was left to Ruth Northeast to score the only goal for the staff team, with Simon Davies doing some fantastic goalkeeping.

But it wasn’t enough to save the staff from another defeat, with the final score 3-1 to the student team.

“It was very enjoyable and I would like to thank everyone involved, including Paul Williams who umpired,” said staff team captain Kerry Rivett, who named the student star player as Will Trotter.

Staff team was: Kerry Rivett, Robin Johnson, Chris Higgins, Ruth Northeast, Simon Davies, Jon Clarkson, Bob Tubman, Kate Bilsland and Huw Williams.

Student team was: Alice Bonas (captain), Sophie Trotter, Philippa Geddes, Will Trotter, Ross Tyson, Tom Keast, James Keast, Joe Smedley and Greg Reynolds.
