Dean Close School's Under-13s girls' hockey team have became county hockey champions once again.

The Cheltenham school won their pool comfortably, beating St Peter's School 7-0, St. Edward's 8-0 and Whitecross 7-0.

 In the semi-final they met Cheltenham Ladies' College and won 3-0.

The final was against Beaudesert and in a fantastic match Dean Close had more of the play and won 1-0.

The team will now go on to compete in the West of England finals in April.

Coach Emma Bailey said the hockey the team played throughout the morning was superb and every member of the squad was fundamental to the success. She added: "It was a fantastic performance from the whole team.

"To score 26 goals in just five matches and concede none is an outstanding achievement and they make very worthy county champions."
