As well as excellently representing the school, SGS sports stars turn out for clubs and teams across the region. One of these is Alderley Edge Hockey Club. Here are some snippets about our hockey players.

Fourth Year Sara Watson has had a successful year on the pitch. At club level she reached the Under 16 Indoor England Hockey National Finals and England Hockey Tier 1 Plate Semi-Finals. With the Under 15 Greater Manchester County side, she won the North of England regional finals in Leeds. Sara is normally a defender and she was delighted that the county did not lose a game throughout the tournament.

Well done to First Years Charlotte Underwood, Ella Hales and Maya Gholkar who were part of the Under 12 squad that qualified for the In2Hockey National Finals that took place in Nottingham at the start of the month.

Third Year goalkeeper Lilly Cook enjoyed the experience of playing at an Olympic venue as she and her Under 14 teammates competed in the England Hockey Tier 1 Plate Final at the Lee Valley Hockey and Tennis Centre. Despite losing in the final, Lilly had a sterling game in between the posts. This followed on from her player of the match performance in the semi-final.
