Last weekend, Year 7 pupils Anna and Olivia were selected to play for Wandsworth in the London Youth Games hockey qualifying tournament.

The London Youth Games is for schoolchildren up to year 9. Wandsworth won two and drew two of their group games without conceding a goal in the process, including a 0-0 draw against last year’s overall winners Southwark. Finishing second in the group on goal difference, they had to play Greenwich in a knock-out match to reach the finals. They drew 1-1, eventually winning 2-0 in a penalty shoot to book their place in the finals at Crystal Palace next month.
