Hockey: Holly preparing for two national finals

1st XI hockey squad

As well as Stockport Grammar’s appearance in the schools championships for girls national final, 1st XI hockey star Holly Hunt is busy training for a possible place with her club in the Maxinutrition Hockey 5s final at Wembley Arena.

England U16s player Holly enjoyed time on the pitch with Bowdon Hightown during the league stage of the competition – in which the club were undefeated in their eight games – and preparing for the final alongside current and former Great Britain and England stars has proved to be a great experience.

The final against Reading at Wembley will take place alongside the men’s semi-finals and final on Sunday 2nd February and will be televised on Sky Sports. Tickets are available from the Wembley Arena website.

Schools championships for girls national final

Next up for the school’s 1st XI is February’s schools championships for girls national final, in which Stockport Grammar will be playing for the title of champions of England.

The girls will be representing the north in the finals after five brilliant wins without conceding a goal in November’s regional qualifiers in Leeds.

Stockport Grammar have been drawn in a group with Dean Close, Repton and Queenswood in the finals, which will take place at Cannock Hockey Club on Tuesday 26th and Wednesday 27th February 2014.
