Year 5/6 Mini Hockey Finals
Whickham Front Street Primary School were last night crowned Gateshead Mini Hockey Champions at the Year 5/6 Mini Hockey Finals. This Final was played last night at Whickham School and Sports College.
6 schools from across Gateshead were involved in the final following qualification in the area tournaments that were organised prior to February half term. The final allowed all teams to play against each other in a 'Round Robin' format.
The level of skill on display last night from all teams was exceptionally high. All games were played in the exactly the right spirit whilst remaining highly competitive.
The Front Street team were very worthy winners of the Gold Medals with Fellside B team taking the runners up spot. Fellside B, having beaten there very own A team to take this Silver Medal position, were very gracious in defeat. They openly acknowleded that they were beaten by the better side. Fellside A team secured the Bronze Medal place.
Unfortunately due to the abolition of the existing School Sport Partnerships and the introduction of the Government's new School Games there will not be a county final to this event this year. I am certain Front Street would have been in a very strong position to take this county final had it been held this year.
