Moulton’s John Harrox School team are the Lincolnshire Primary Schools Quickstix hockey champions.

The youngsters won through against the Spalding schools and then triumped against winners from the Bourne and Holbeach area, before competing in the finals.

Nerves were clearly evident as the squad of Mayhew, Barnes, Taylor, Craig, Greetham, McKendrick and Bell began their campaign.

Their first game saw them up against last years winners St Gilberts and despite playing some fluid hockey they were unlucky to hit the post three times and lost the first game 2-0.

After an injection of self belief however they went out and dominated the next six games, winning them all.

The squad worked hard for each other as they rotated around positions, defending and attacking as a unit.

Mayhew used his skill to open up games while Barnes and McKendrick constantly found the back of the net.

Taylor was impressive as he defended calmly and moved the ball through the midfield to both create and score goals.
