Norwich School U18 Boys Reach Cup Semi-Finals
21 Mar 2019
 
Congratulations to the Norwich School U18 Boys team who beat Oakham School 4-0 yesterday to reach the semi-finals of the England Hockey Schools Competition.  
 
Norwich School went into the match knowing they would be up against tough opposition in Oakham. However, in front of a raucous home crowd, Norwich quickly started dominating to the extent that a 1-0 lead at half-time was flattering to Oakham. Norwich School lifted their game even further in the second half to win comfortably by a four goal margin and seal their place in the semi-finals at Lea Valley on 1 May as one of the top four school hockey teams in the country. 
 
Congratulations to all the boys and the coaches, with a special mention to the Norwich City boys who were part of yesterday's victorious team: Tom Bailey, George Harrad, Alex Merron, Ben Millett, Ben Nkrumah, Harry Paterson and Dan Phillips.
