Playing against club side Repton HC, as well as divisional teams from the South and West of England respectively the girls played each team twice. A final 5-1 victory against the West of England in a ‘winner takes all’ match was the performance of the season!

Duncan Parnis, HC Knole Park Head Coach said: “We are so pleased to have been able to go away this summer with these two squads. It’s obviously been a very tough year for everyone. Repton have been brilliant in being able to host these tournaments under the Covid limitations. To see how much the girls improved in such a short space of time was hugely rewarding for all. The final performances for both the U12 and U14 Girls were simply awesome! The girls all had a great time together off the pitch too – memories and friends for life is exactly why we always try and go away each year! My thanks to the mangers, parents and players for their support this week too.”
The Repton Cup is an invitational tournament held annually in Repton School, Derbyshire. Teams are invited from across England for the two-day U12 tournament and four-day U14 tournament.
