The future is bright...
Warwick’s 1st XI Hockey team has successfully made it through to the Quarter-Finals of the ‘Notts Sport Boys’ Schools Championships’.
This is the first time that the team has progressed this far in many years, which is a great achievement. Warwick School last got through to the Finals of this competition back in 1982 winning against Doncaster Grammar.
The Warwick team has qualified through their group, being the only team to win all of their matches against some tough opposition, including last year’s finalists Oakham School and Repton School.
