Last week saw a flurry of girls’ matches against a visiting school from Essex. West Cliff High School brought out an U16 and an U14 team and played matches against all four of Gibraltar’s girls’ teams.

Despite Tuesday’s cold, rainy and, above all, windy weather, Grammarians girls and Eagles girls successfully beat both West Cliff teams.

Thursday was the turn of the Falcons girls and a very junior Hawks 3 side. Falcons were victorious and Hawks 3 battled really well with a 1-2 defeat in the end.

Some great hockey was played despite the severe windy conditions. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and, together with regular matches in the mixed U14 league every Thursday, this standard of hockey bodes well for a future U16 Gibraltar squad.
