KP Mixed exit EH Plate competition
In the first round of the England Hockey Mixed Plate, Knole Park failed to take their early chances in a 6-1 loss to Gore Court. In a really enjoyable match, Gore Court proved to be too strong in the end and ran out winners in the final stages. A goal from Phoebe Gough-Cooper kept the match alive for a short time, but it wasn’t enough on this occasion.
