Well done to all involved in the hockey tournament in Ashton on Saturday, 3rd March.
Our Senior and Junior teams lost to Midleton in both finals, but they did really well to get there and did well in the finals too. Everybody represented their school really well, both in victory and defeat, and on and off the pitch. We also had two other teams which were the Junior and Senior ‘United’ teams. They were made up of 4 players each from St. Luke’s and Midleton. These players did particularly well as they had to get to know their teammates from Midleton and quickly get used to their style of play. And both the ‘United’ teams made it to the semi-finals with the Juniors losing to Midleton and the Seniors losing to none other than St. Luke’s by a narrow margin of 1 – 0. All in all a great morning in the sunshine!
