BromBeck boys win London Youth Games Hockey Competition

Sunday 7th July saw several boys from BromBeck juniors compete in the London Youth Games Hockey Competition hosted at Crystal Palace National Sports Centre. The LYGs competition is entered by all the boroughs in London and is a very tough competition to win - so this is an outstanding achievement and the boys should be really proud of their victory.

The boys from the U14s and U12 age groups played 3 group games in the first session, opening with a match against Hillingdon with Noah Goddard opening the scoring in his usual assured way. This was followed up with another quick goal to get the boys off to a fast start. Although Hillingdon came back into the match with a goal of their own the boys managed to see the game through to a win. With the next game against Harrow - the squad was reduced by one when Jamie Stewart was struck by a stick towards the end of the game and needed 2 steri-strips, some glue and a trip to the local medi-centre. Jamie was having a storming game at the time having nearly setup a goal from left defender - and we were really sorry to see him go! The boys managed to win the game 2-0 with Callum and Matteo getting into the action and making sure we came out with the win.

The final game in the pool was against a good Redbridge side. The team were now really hitting their stride and delivered a dominant win, with good performances from Bertie Morrison and George Catton putting Redbridge to the sword 3-0. A special mention to Jamie Hamilton for his scouting mission and coaching advice to the team!

This qualified the boys for the semi final where we were came up against Haringey. Once again some great performances meant that the team came through by 3 goals to 1 with another dominant performance.

The expectation was that we would play the favourites - Wandsworth in the final - however they were knocked out in a semi final penalty shoot out 13-12 to leave us playing Hillingdon once more.

The final was a tense affair with a great goal from Femi Owalde-Coombes setting us up, only for Hillingdon to break away near the end, but a fine one on one save from Jamie Freeman, who was outstanding all day in goal, allowing the boys to seal the game for the Bromley borough. As expected the boys were delighted with the medals, trophy and training tops that were awarded to the winners.

A fantastic day, and special mention to the spine of the team - Noah De Vaux, Harrison King Enda Connelly and Fionn Sparrow who were all outstanding and really showed their great skills and reading of the game.

A special mention to Andre Thomas for his coaching support and Sarah Goddard for organising the team and the training sessions. Roll on next year!

A team of boys from Bromley and Beckenham U14s pulled off a great result to win the London Youth Games hockey competition.

The team, comprising Liam Writer, Liam O'Leary, Harrison King, Joe Furzer, Barney Spear, Sacha Jennings, Fionn Sparrow, Enda Connolly, Elliot Dodds, Conal Sparrow and Ali Valder made a great start to competition winning 4-0 in dominant and stylish fashion in the first game of the day on the scorchingly hot World Cup Quarter Final Saturday. 

They followed that up with a 3-0 win with Ali Valder coming to the rescue on a few occasions - setting up a the last pool game against Lewisham to see who would top the group.  The boys pulled off a very comfortable 1-0 win which rather flattered the opposition, although the did nearly equalise with the very last hit of the game.

The semi-final was against a very good Southwark side, but once Barney had accidentally dispatched their most dangerous player at a penalty corner - the boys went to record a comfortable 2-0 win. 

The final pitted the boys once again against Lewisham.  The scoreline does no justice to the game as the boys again dominated the match winning 1-0 with a Barney Spear penalty corner settling the game.  The performance was so complete that Lewisham only managed to get into our circle once in the game and managed no shots at all. 


All in all a great day - and the boys played with real skill and showed great attitude and application all day. 

Look out for the celebration evening!
