Over twenty schools descended upon Streatham and Clapham Girls School’s magnificent AstroTurf hockey pitch this morning with Rosendale fielding two teams from a squad of 13 Year 5 and 6 boys and girls. With each team playing seven games, all the children had plenty of opportunities to show off the skills Mr Wilkinson had taught them over the last couple of weeks. Overall each team ended the day with roughly equal numbers of games won, lost and drawn and sadly neither team progressed through to the semi finals. Nevertheless all the children gave their best effort, played for the team and observed the rules of fairplay. Well done to you all and I do hope you enjoyed the day as much as I did. A very special thank you must go to Rosendale governor Ola Balme who accompanied the team and supported them steadfastly all day.
