New County Champions
The new Middlesex schools
junior hockey champions are Willesden County Grammar School. They
won the final of the championship for the first time ever last Saturday by
beating the holders N. London Collegiate 1-0 at Barnes.
After seven minutes of
fast exciting hockey they scored and then successfully defended their own
goal despite constant pressure from their opponents.
After the team had been
formed two years ago, it played against older and more experienced
opposition but suffered only two defeats. This experience proved
invaluable and this season the team has not lost an inter-school game,
having scored 47 goals and conceded only four.
Its path to the final was
as follows: Preliminaries beat Paddington 2-0; Maida Vale; Parliament Hill
2-0; Burling(?) 1-0; drew with Hendon 0-0; Hampstead 1-1.
Semi-finals beat The Green, Isleworth 3-?; Palmers Green 1-0; Bishopsha?
