Chapter 7 Hockey Team win at Birkenhead School
Jurgen Klopp and Pep LiJnders are well known for turning Liverpool FC good players into world beaters and Miss Evans and Miss Pye are doing a very similar job with the chapter seven hockey team. Many of the pupils involved in the hockey squad had either never played hockey before or had only played some hockey at other grounds and locations. What Miss Evans and Miss Pye have done is build the character of the team by creating a team ethos of togetherness and resilience. Alongside this the basics of hockey have been taught in stages so the pupils have a clear understanding of how hockey is played. Although, results haven't produced wins in the first term, there were signs a real promise from individuals and team play. Last Saturday was the turning point as the team made the trip to Birkenhead School. Miss Evans and Miss Pye was purring on the sidelines as the team put all their previous training ground moves together and put on a scintillating display of real character. The team won and staff and pupils were delighted as hands and sticks were triumphantly held aloft. Many congratulations to the team and coaches.
