St Andrew’s College Hockey: Tony Godding Festival

MARCH 17, 2016

The St Andrew's College Hockey team 1st XI had a great start to their season in East London over the weekend winning all four of their matches, but importantly ironing out some early match and early season nerves as they attempted to establish their playing patterns.

"In two of the four matches they were a goal behind. Against Selborne, and Cambridge whom they beat 4-1 and 6-1 respectively," described Cherié Wille, Communications Officer.

"Further matches were played against a skilful and hard-running Hudson Park, whom they beat 5-1 and Stirling, whom they beat 3-0."

She said that James Kirkpatrick and Richard Brown have both earned their 1st Team Jerseys, to add to Ross Vides, Luke Hobson, Peter Jarvis, Peter Tharratt, Vuyo Ketwa, Zukisa Biyana, Jonty Hoard and William Marx who had already earned their 1st XI jerseys.

"Peter Tharrat and Vuyo Ketwa have been elected as vice captains of Hockey and William Marx has been elected as Captain of Hockey for 2016."
