Rossall School are celebrating a unique treble hockey triumph.

Never before has the Fleetwood school won the Lancashire Cup at three age levels in the same season.

After the first XI won the Lancashire Cup the previous week, the Rossall’s Under-14s did likewise.

Beaten finalists last year, Rossall dominated this time to win 4-0 against Crosby’s Merchant Taylors as Dylan Jordan and Oliver Hughes scored two each.

Tom Ardron was the man of the match and Sam Braidford was highly creative.

Rossall Under-16s also faced Merchant Taylors in the final, retaining the trophy with a 7-0 victory.

Scott Hume’s deflected goal gave Rossall an early lead and Louis Weir flicked the ball into the top corner to secure a 2-0 half-time lead.

Using the full width of the pitch, the boys scored some fine second-half goals as man of the match Weir finished with four.

William Parker, Charlie Andrews, Jack Morrison, Frazer Forster and captain William Parker were all in fine form.

They will now contest the regional finals in the hope of qualifying for the national finals for the second year running.

Not to be outdone, the Under-13s won the Terra Nova Invitational seven-aside tournament.

They beat hosts Terra Nova 3-1 before defeating Denstone College by the same score in the final.

Goals by James Boyd, Daniel Wightman and David Trapnell secured the trophy, while Jon Lee was man of the match in the final and Sam Braidford player of the tournament.

Defenders John Bate, Joe Eastham, Gus Maree and Daniel Evans were impressive throughuot.

The Under-12s sealed third place with a 4-0 victory over Terra Nova. Harrison Ardron scored twice, with Chase Mills and Oliver Hockings also on target.

In the Girls’ National Mini Hockey Championship, Rossall Under-13s had wins over Archbishop Blanch (1-0) and Liverpool College (4-0), with Kennedy Taylor netting all four.

The Under-11 girls played out a thrilling 3-3 draw with King Edward VII and Queen Mary’s, taking an arlyh lead when Grace Gordon fired home after good passing by Kathryn Watson and Kirsty Swarbrick.

KEQMS hit back to lead 2-1 at half-time but Gordon ran through to hammer home an equaliser.

Again the Lytham school went in front but Imogen Hockings secured the draw in an exciting game.
