Under-16 squad crowned
Coopers Coborn’s under-16s followed in the footsteps of their elder classmates by being crowned Essex hockey champions.
The Upminster pupils, who are sponsored by Allen Ford in Corbets Tey, beat Chigwell (3-0), Forest (1-0), King John (1-0), Brentwood (2-0) and Felsted (2-0) to clinch the silverware, thanks to goals from Emma Sharp, Chelsea Robertson, Collette McLoughlin and Olivia Martin.
And they will now head to the regional finals like the under-18 squad, who won their Essex title last week after beating Chigwell, King John, Chelmsford and New Hall in their group, before going on to defeat Bancroft and Felsted in the knockout round.
Under-16s: Lawrence, Martin, Sharp, Marshall, Ackerman, Triggs, Ives, Maguire, McLoughlin, Boreham, Ruffell, Robertson, Wiltshire, Cannons.
Under-18s: Menear, Bailey, Miller, Dubb, Earl, King, Bloy, Gane, Fortune, Patient, Holmes, Miller, Chohan.
Christine Ohuruogu and Mo Farah have been nominated for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
