The 2011 season was truly one to remember; made special by the enthusiastic and committed group of U14 girls that worked hard and improved each week. They were competitive throughout and always willing to learn. They thoroughly deserved their success.

The start of the season saw the school side narrowly missing out in some games that they could have won. Then, after their confidence began to grow and they got used to each other, the results started to turn in the School’s favour. Indeed, there were some very impressive wins as the team started to convert the chances that were created.

They really came to life at the County Tournament where they dominated the games they played and impressed people who were watching. They were unlucky to draw the final with Portsmouth Grammar School as KES had the bulk of possession and unable to score the opposition won on penalty flicks. It seemed a rather cruel way to end a fantastic day of hockey.

In the National Cup Competition, following a tremendous performance against Churchers College, the U14s just lost out by one goal to Portsmouth Grammar School in the final. However, they still went through to the South heats. It was this day that the team really came of age. They fought hard, yet showed composure. They rose to the challenge and believed in each other. It is a long time since I have seen a King Edward VI School side play as impressively at this age. They lost out on a chance of playing in the semi-finals by just one point, but became one of the top eight schools in the South! I was a very proud coach amongst a very proud group of players.

I was so pleased that they managed to finish their season with a final win against Dauntseys School . The U14s are a very talented group of girls with lots of character and lots of potential. I will miss both their company and their fun factor. I look forward to watching them develop in the future. I hope they can maintain their commitment, will to win and love of life!
