Boys Hockey Season 2015-2016

At the annual Munster Branch award ceremony in Cork, Villiers boys hockey were presented with the ‘Best Boys Hockey School Award’ for the 2015-6 season. What an achievement. We are all delighted and very proud of receiving this award for the very first time. Congratulations must firstly go to our coaching team who give of so much of their time to our students – George Blackwell, Declan O’Brien, Brian Gray and Alan Whisker. Secondly to the players themselves for putting in the hard work on the training pitch. We currently have a talented bunch at both senior and junior levels. We reached both the senior and junior A & B cup finals this season, winning both the junior A & B cups. It was our senior A’s third consecutive cup final and it was 17years since we last lifted the junior A cup. Our talent at the upper end of the school can be seen with our above average Munster provincial representation. Well done to one and all.
