Boys under 10s and Boys under 12s are Surrey Cup Bronze Medallists....and Girls Under 16s are 2024 Reigate & Banstead Junior Team of the Year

The Junior Section continues in their successes. There's been loads of mini tournaments and finals in recent weeks across various age groups where it's been great to see the RPHC Juniors playing and enjoying their hockey with some great successes for our Boys under 10s and Boys under 12s who are bothe Surrey Cup Bronze Medallists which is a fantastic achievement considering the strong clubs across Surrey. Also, continuing from their incredible success in being National Champions in the Under 16 girls National Tier-2 Tournament, they were recently awarded the 2024 Reigate & Banstead Junior Team of the Year . Congratulations to everyone involved. Under 10s season round- up :

The boys U10s have had a great season culminating in a strong showing at the Surrey cup winning bronze medals in both the cup and the plate competitions.

This season saw the introduction of a tier 1 team for this group and the boys did brilliantly against established tier 1 teams from some very strong clubs. Across both tier 1 and tier 2, RPHC teams have consistently performed well, including the Surrey Cup competitions.

With a team in the cup and two teams in the plate competition RPHC were the only club to field three teams in the tournament. Across all fixtures this season we have regularly fielded three teams (even for away games that involve significant travel) which is testimony to the fantastic support shown by our players and their parents.

Our tier 1 cup team had a tough start against eventual finalists Guildford and Old Georgians but they grew stronger as the tournament progressed, showing great character and determination to beat good teams from Epsom and Woking to finish third and secure the bronze medals.

Our tier 2 plate teams also played extremely well with the Lions reaching the semi-finals, losing to eventual winners Guildford before winning the 3rd/4th play off to claim their bronze medals which were presented to them by GB international player Sam Ward.

The Tigers featured some of our promising Under 8s who stepped up brilliantly to a different format (5 a-side to 7 a-side), playing with and against older boys and the whole team acquitted themselves superbly.

The end of season awards were strongly contested with some great development and performances from all the boys. The well deserved winners of the awards are:

U9 most improved player - Josh H
U9 player of the season - Chenyun JC
U10 most improved player - Thomas A
U10 player of the season - Liam T

Well done to all the boys on a very enjoyable and successful season!
