Marshland a dominant force

MARSHLAND High School girls’ hockey first team have won all their league matches this season on their way to the league championship.

This is the fifth year in a row they have been unbeaten and are the dominating force in the District Schools Hockey League. This season they have scored 29 goals and have not let in one goal.

They are one of the most successful school teams since the school was formed in 1926.

Head of PE Paul Swinburn, a former England international hockey player, said: “I have never worked with such a hard working, team orientated, tactically aware school team. They are way ahead of their years and I am extremely proud of them.”

Marshland provide over 40 players for three local clubs on Saturdays at Wisbech, Pelicans and March.

The school is so supportive over the hockey that it even took a coach full of supporters and staff for their final match last week when they won 7-0 against Hamond’s High School, Swaffham.
