On Wednesday 25 March the Elmbridge Hockey Squad went to Cheltenham College to play in the county finals. We went in with our heads held high hoping for gold even though we did not know what to expect. We were up against some tough teams that were much better trained than us but even tough we came fourth in our pool we had a great time and played really well, but there's always next year. Thank you to Mr Grigg and Mr Barnett for giving us these opportunities and to all the team that represented our school.
