Year 5/6 Mini Hockey Finals

Tonight saw the conclusion of the Year 5/6 Mini Hockey tournaments. The finals of this competition saw 6 teams compete for the right to be crowned the Gateshead Champions. The teams earning their right to be in these finals following the area tournaments earlier this month were as follows:

  • Fellside C
  • Front Street
  • Rowlands Gill A
  • Rowlands Gill B
  • South Street C
  • Winlaton West Lane


The weather was glorious and the level of skill and game play on display was a match for it. All games were closely contested in a Round Robin League. A full list of these results can be found in the resources section of this website

Rowlands Gill A team came out as undisputed champions winning all their games and taking the Gold Medal. A good evening for Rowlands Gill all round with their B team finishing runners up and receiving the Silver Medal. Front Street were worthy Bronze Medallists providing a fitting end for their PE teacher, Mr Paul Holmes, who will retire this week.

As well as thanking all the volunteers from the local hockey club, staff, spectators and the players themselves a special thank you was given to Mr Holmes. This was for his years of excellent service to PE and school sport in Gateshead - he will be greatly missed but we all wish him well in his retirement. 

This was an excellent tournament to conclude another brilliant term of school sport events, festivals, training and tournaments organised by our School Sport Partnership.
