On Thursday 18th May 2018, Holcombe Ladies 1st team travelled to Dublin, Ireland for the Euro Hockey Club Trophy, Womens.
We were very proud and nervous for our King's pupils, Aspen Cumming and Sophie Eldred, along with our hockey coach Jo Westwood who were in the Holcombe line-up.
The ladies got off to a great start winning their first game 4-0. They continued this with a win in their second game 4-2 with a goal from Jo. Their 3rd game was their biggest win with 7-0 which led them to win the pool putting them into the final against JuniorFC from Barcelona.
The match really tested both teams and the game ended with a 1-1 draw. With nails bitten and eyes covered the final came down to penalty shuffles. With an unbelievable final shuffle from Holcombes' Beth Bingham the ladies won the final (4-2).
The whole of Holcombe 1s and more importantly our 3 ladies should be incredibly proud of their achievement....as our coach Westwood says, #Goldisthecolour
