The hockey club for the second consecutive year have completed the clean sweep of county championships, winning the U12s, U13s, U14s, U16s and U18s.

 There was a fantastic display from the U12s who, in their first tournament, won the county title and progress through to the regional rounds. They played some fine hockey and beat a strong Weald team in the final.

Well done to the U13A team who won the tournament held at Canterbury beating Kent College Pembury in the final and progressing through the regional rounds.

Congratulations to the U14A side who won all their matches to claim the county title. They thoroughly deserved to progress but were pushed all the way in the final by a strong side from the Weald of Kent School. They now look forward to battling it out in the regional rounds and are aiming to match last year’s performance when the team got through to the national finals.

 Having won the county tournament, the U16s remained unbeaten in the regional rounds to progress through to the regional finals in November. They didn’t concede a goal throughout the day and beat New Hall, Langley, Bedford Modern and Presdales. They are aiming to defend their national title.

The U18s were also county champions and the Sevenoaks 2nd XI team battled through the regional round playing against other schools 1st XI’s. They won their final game against the Royal Masonic School on penalty flicks.
