In Arctic conditions the Central College Nottingham male hockey team battled through to finish 6th overall at the British Colleges National Championships.
For many this was their first experience competing in at this level, the first match for the team was on arrival and the schedule continued through to the closing ceremony on Sunday afternoon.
Speaking with the team on Monday morning, many were still recovering from the hectic schedule and long journey back from Bath, but the feeling amongst the players was “It was a great experience and an opportunity to compete against some really good players and teams”.
“We are glad we got through to the National Championships and with one more win could have come away finishing third which would have been the icing on the cake for us all”.
