CHESHIRE CUP
DOUBLE WINNERS

King’s rugby players have recorded an incredible double win at county level with both the under-16s and under-14s wining their Cheshire Cup finals.

In a festival of youth rugby at Priory Park watched by an impressive crowd, the under-14s first beat St. Ambrose 20 -17 in a titanic battle before their older counterparts outplayed Altrincham Grammar School to win by 17 – 6.

King’s U14s were set on their way by Captain Sam Higginson who galloped over for the first try inside two minutes. This was closely followed by King’s second scored by Henry Collinson. King’s remained in the lead right up to the final whistle with a further try scored by man of the match Angus Thomson, while full back young William Davies added the extras and also slotted a penalty.

The under-16s were next up with man of the match, hard hitting second row, Sam Worthington scampering over for his first of a brace of tries on 14 minutes. The King’s pack continued to dominate and their defence was outstanding all game and denied a big AGS set of backs any try scoring opportunities. Their only points coming off the boots of their fly half. Jack Hudson collapsed over the line just before half time to give Kings a 10-6 lead. Worthington scored his second try part way through the second half and with it, killed off any chance AGS had of getting back into the game.








BARBADOS 
HOCKEY AND NETBALL TOUR OCTOBER 2014 

 King’s Girls felt the heat in Barbados on their 

netball and hockey tour.

        The 12 day tour over half term saw hard 

        fought encounters with a series of                         older opposition teams determined to show                 their national pride.

 

The King’s School’s Head of Academic Physical Education, Cheshire cricket Captain Jennifer 

Dunn, said: “It would be fair to say we 

encountered hostile conditions in terms of 

the weather, the locations and especially our opponents, but as they say when the going 

gets tough, the tough get going and we certainly

 came up against a series of teams determined 

to prove that Caribbean sport still has the 

upper hand.”

 

King’s won two out of their three hockey 

fixtures and all three of the netball games 

played against opposition teams of the same 

age,  but were out gunned in the school, club 

and regional fixtures against older girls, losing

 seven games.

 

Mrs Dunn added: “It was a fantastic experience playing some genuinely tough sport but then 

sealing great friendships off court. I think we 

showed that Macclesfield’s young women could 

stand the heat, and I was particularly pleased 

in the way our girls were fabulous ambassadors 

for King’s and for Macclesfield.”

 

As well as the sport, the touring party enjoyed 

some rest and recreation on the beach, went on a catamaran tour of the island together with a

 series of adventures off the beaten track.

 

Mrs Dunn concluded: “It was about enjoying everything Caribbean life has to offer including 

the cultural highlight which was the magnificent Harbour Lights show, which we were all able to marvel at thanks to our collective pre-tour 

fundraising efforts.

 

“That said, perhaps, the most eye opening feature

 of the tour was the day we all spent in a local 

school, witnessing the pride, passion and purpose 

of Barbados’s young people.”

King’s Girls’ Division is now planning its next 

European sports tour for their sports teams.
