Year 7 boys recently played in their first ever hockey match representing the Academy against Barnard Castle school. Usually the boys do not play hockey, but so many attend the morning hockey club that a match was arranged for them.
We fielded two teams - one won 2-1 with goals by Alex Grant and Daniel Evans and the other drew 1-1 with the goal by Joe Lillystone.
As is traditional at Barnard Castle, tea was provided for the teams after the match, which was enjoyed by everyone.
Thanks to Jason Mulroy from Darlington Hockey Club and Hannah Mulroy (Year 9) who came along to support.
Players were: Harry Alderson, Sam Duffy, Harry Edwards, Daniel Evans, Will Finney, Alex Grant, Tom I'Anson (captain), Joe Lillystone, Alex Mason, Sam Rhodes-Dawber, Jack Wilson (captain), Matthew Brennan
