Recently some of our AKS junior and senior girls represented Lancashire in an U12 Northern Counties Hockey Tournament. Girls from Years 5, 6 and 7 played. There were 13 county teams from all over the North of England including Durham, North Yorkshire, West Yorkshire, South Yorkshire, Greater Manchester, Northumberland and, of course, Lancashire.
Almost the whole of the Lancashire A team had their passion and skills nurtured at AKS Lytham, including Felicity, Ziv, Gabriella, Olivia and Lucy as well as former AKS pupil Beth.
The girls played superbly to reach the final, but were unfortunate to lose out 3-1 against a very strong North Yorkshire team.
Some of our girls also played for the Lancashire B team, with Charlotte, Jessie and Jessica representing. Charlotte captained the team. These are all Year 5 girls and have now represented Lancashire at U12 level. This is two years above their age group. Katie, Anna and Beth have also played in a previous tournament for Lancashire this season, as did Carly from Year 5.
Congratulations must go to all of the AKS girls for working so hard to, first of all, gain county honours, and then to play so well on the day.
