Eastbourne Hockey girls under-10 won all of their matches at the first junior hockey tournament of the season.

Captain Amelia Tait at centre midfield led the way and scored the majority of goals with her silky skills and determination. She was ably assisted by Rosie Clay.

Milly Taylor defended well while Ella Paneyootou was great on the left wing. Tianna Coley and Megan were unbeatable in defence and Jasmine Wright showed fabulous positioning. A very promising start to the season, well done girls and keep it going.

The under-12 boys fielded two teams and managed an amazing first and third place.

The A and B team had to take on each other to secure a place in the final. It was so close and with a 0-0 draw after extra time it was down to flicks which the A team narrowly won.

In the final a goal from Jamie Clay saw they recorded a narrow victory against Horsham.
