Year 9 & 10 Hockey Results
The Year 9 and Year 10 team have both played in their first fixtures of the year.

Corpus Christi: 5
Asiya Hakoma was Miss Daniels' player of the match.

Kelsey Morgan was outstanding and was voted by Plasmawr as the player of the game. Kelsey was thrilled. Once again, Fitzalan moved the ball forward well. Captain Hanaa Mohamed and Amira Mohamed were solid at the back, executing the ball well. Ellie David showed her attacking prowess dribbling up to our attacking circle. Plasmawr were solid in defence and we couldn't quite execute our chances. The final score was:
