End of Hockey Season

posted in: Sports News | 0

The end of season hockey World Cup tournaments were held before Easter with 12 teams made up of 2nd to 6th class boys or girls representing countries from around the world.  Netherlands met Pakistan in the boys final and Netherlands met Ireland in the girls final and Netherlands won both!

In a special Assembly this week medals and trophies were presented to our Senior Boys Squad, Girls 1st & 2nd Squads, along with special awards to our Boys & Girls Players of the Year.  Both the Netherlands teams from the World Cup tournament received golden hockey balls as winners of the tournament!

We were delighted to have three past pupils of Taney come to Assembly to present the awards to the players, all of whom played for Ireland U16s this year in matches in England and Germany as they prepare for the big Six Nations Tournament in Eindhoven in July.
