Youth Awards 2018

Harleston Magpies celebrate their best season yet at annual youth awards!

Harleston Magpies Hockey Club Youth Section has had an exceptional year.  Every age group from U10s to U18s, boys and girls, have something to be proud of. Many squads have achieved the highest level possible with national final appearances including the U12 girls, U14 boys and girls and semi-final finishes for both the boys and girls U18s.

On Friday 19 May at Magpies clubhouse, it was all about celebrating this success and recognising the hard work of every player, all team officials, the army of volunteer coaches and assistants and of course the fleet of mum and dad taxi’s!

Over 120 children played games throughout the early evening and then crowded into the clubhouse to see the lucky recipients of the highly prized annual awards, presented by stars of Magpies 1st teams and former junior members, Rose Winter and Jack Hobbs.

The Magpies junior section was also delighted to welcome Andrew Longe, Honorary Life member of Harleston Magpies to present the Longe Trophy for outstanding Youth Coaching services.  Since 1994 Andrew has wanted to shine a light on unsung heros in the youth section, those coaches who tirelessly strive to deliver high calibre coaching, giving up evening after evening year after year and this year the entire room agreed that Chris Flatt was a more than worthy winner of the award for his work with Magpies junior goal keepers (pictured Chris Flatt and Andrew Longe).

Club Youth Chairman David Johnson was thrilled at the turnout for the evening, saying: ‘Our awards evening is always a terrific night made even better this year with a glorious summers evening.  It was really good to see youngsters from across the age groups mixed up and playing some hockey whilst parents mingled and supported from the side lines before everyone came into the clubhouse for the awards presentation.  Well done to all the winners on the night but equally important well done to all who have been part of Magpies youth system. It really has been an exceptional season which everyone can take some credit for.”

David Johnson continued: ‘This year’s event was even more special because before the evenings’ entertainment, Magpies hosted a quick sticks hockey coaching and mini tournament afternoon for three local primary schools. This introduced hockey and Magpies to over 70 year three and four pupils from Pulham, Dickleburgh and Newton Flotman primary schools.  We hope many will come back and take part in the clubs summer hockey taster sessions in June’.

Harleston Magpies U13 Boys

HARLESTON MAGPIES U13 BOYS IN MAGPIES FRIENDLY TOURNAMENT SUN OCT 18TH

An inexperienced U13 Boys team had the chance of some useful practice with two matches against Dereham and Norwich City playing both teams twice.

In the first match Magpies were outplayed by a useful Dereham team losing 2-0 and Magpies looked like a team that had not played together before. In the next match Magpies beat Norwich City 4-0 with goals from Eddie Martin, Jack Frere-Smith, Robert Johnson and George Collins.

In the return game against Dereham Magpies were unfortunately 1-0 down in a minute but after that showed a terrific improvement as they really gave Dereham a game conceding a late second goal.

In the final match against Norwich City Magpies won 3-0 with goals from Eddie Martin 2 and George Collins.

Team: George Collins (Capt), Jack Free-Smith, Eddie Martin, Jack Heydon, Robert Johnson, Jordan Wiseman and Toby McManus. Sonny Molloy was unfortunately ill on the day.

U13 Boys report re Pelicans Tournament

U13 BOYS AT PELICANS TOURNAMENT

Harleston Magpies U13 Boys finished 3rd at the Pelicans Tournament. With the return of Sonny Molloy, Mitchell Tompkins and Elliot Ashurst to the team from the previous weekend at Watton this looked more like the regular team.


A 1-1 draw (James Bensly) in the opening game was a promising start as Dereham have won most Tournaments this season. Unfortunately losing 0-1 to Pelicans in the next game and drawing 3-3 with Watton (Elliot Ashurst, Thomas Ridley and Mitchell Tompkins) was disappointing. Norwich City B team were beaten 7-0 (Thomas Ridley 3, Elliot Ashurst 4) and Dereham B 4-1 (Thomas Ridley, Mitchell Tompkins 2 and Elliot Ashurst).


In the final game against Norwich City it was an end to end game and Mitchell Tompkins seemed certain to score as he rounded the goalkeeper onaly for a diving stick save from the GK to deny him a certain goal. Norwich went straight down the other end to take a 1-0 lead. Magpies battled back strongly to equalise through Mitchell Tompkins.

Team: Thomas Ridley, Harry Murton, James Bensly, Rory Aldridge, Elliot Ashurst, Barnaby Carless, Sonny Molloy and Mitchell Tompkins.

HARLESTON MAGPIES U13 BOYS AT WATTON TOURNAMENT

Magpies U13 Boys were depleted due to absences for half term but put up a creditable performance with several U11 Boys making their debut for the U13s. They lost their first game 0-2 to a useful Dereham side when Magpies were at their most vunerable as they tried to organise a new team. After that the Boys battled well drawing 1-1 with Watton (Thomas Ridley), 1-1 with Pelicans (James Bensly) and 1-1 with Norwich City (Sol Barker).


The U13 Boys finished 3rd.

Team: Thomas Ridley, James Bensly, Barnaby Carless, Rory Aldridge, Harry Murton, Eddie Martin and Soloman Barker.

NORTH WALSHAM MINI HOCKEY TOURNAMENT

NORTH WALSHAM MINI HOCKEY TOURNAMENT

Harleston Magpies U13 Girls and U13 Boys teams both had a successful day at the first Mini Hockey Tournament of the season hosted by North Walsham.

The U13 Girls played in the morning and started with a solid 1-0 win against Pelicans with Jemima Jacobs scoring the winner. From then on the goals started to flow beating Dereham 3-0 (Sarah Brook, Paris Wood and Holly Baker) , North Walsham 5-0 (Sarah Brook 2, Holly Baker and Jemima Jacobs 2), and Watton 4-0 (Jemima Jacobs 3 and Holly Baker). In the final game Magpies finished with an impressive 8-0 win against Norwich City with Jemima Jacobs scoring 6 with further goals from Holly Baker and Sarah Brook. This was a promising start with the team showing some lovely passing movements.

Team: Katie Rudd, Hannah Gormley, Sarah Brook, Holly Baker, Kira Wooltorton, Paris Wood and Jemima Jacobs.

The U13 Boys also played well in the afternoon to win their Tournament. Magpies twice led in the opening game against Dereham but were finally held to a 2-2 draw with goals from Sam Lyne and Mitchell Tompkins. A 4-0 win against Pelicans saw the team grow in confidence as James Bensly, Sam Lyne and Mitchell Tompkins 2 scored the goals.

There was no stopping Magpies now as they beat North Walsham 6-2 (Sam Lyne 2, Mitchell Tompkins 2, James Bensly and Sonny Molloy), Watton 5-1 (Sam Lyne 2, James Bensly and Mitchell Tompkins 2) and finally Norwich City 6-0 (Sam Lyne 2, James Bensly, Mitchell Tompkins 2 and Josh Elgood) to clinch the Tournament. This was a good team performance with Sonny Molloy playing well at the back and U11 goalkeeper Jordan Wiseman helping out with some good saves.

Team: Mitchell Tompkins, Sam Lyne, Rory Aldridge, Josh Elgood, James Bensly, Sonny Molloy and Jordan Wiseman.
