“Its not always the best that win.  It’s the ones that never give up that win” Drew Cuevas

Teamwork at its best

at the Oxfordshire Years 5&6 Mixed County Final

Friday 31st March 2017

This was a remarkable day for Crowmarsh at the Hockey County finals at Tilsley Park. Our two teams had previously done so well at the tournaments to get to this stage.  The play was to a very high standard, every school worked so hard and Crowmarsh coped well under the pressure.  The team headed up by Captain Peter Clayton-Chance played incredibly well and earned a very respectable 4th place.  All the team played well together and were respectful of the rules and etiquette of the game.  They put in 100% effort and were the very best they could be.  Well done to you all!

Here’s some comments from the Team :

Peter  – “We played really well as a team, we worked together well.  The playing was the important thing; winning and losing didn’t matter as much because we learnt from the whole experience. It was really fun.”

Ruby – “It was fun and a good opportunity to reach the County finals where we could challenge ourselves as well as enjoy ourselves.”

Louis  – “It was good to play against the other teams, be able to use proper equipment and be refereed by somebody totally independent.”

Hannah – “It was good to play against teams that were all of a high standard because this really challenged us, also we worked well as a team.  We passed to each other not just our friends.  We covered the pitch well and came 4th!”

James – “I think it was very well organised and a good tournament, we were all extremely well organised and worked well together.  Each of us played out position effectively and all together we became a strong team.”
