The annual Thornton v Cundall staff hockey match returned to the school last night (Thursday 28 March) as Thornton put in a sterling performance against a strong staff side.
The team of Y11 pupils narrowly came up short against the staff team, losing 2-1 in an enjoyable and competitive game. The staff team drew first blood going into half time 1-0 up following a quick breakaway. A good second half saw the staff extend their lead to two before the year 11 pupils brought it back to 2-1 following a well-rehearsed penalty corner.
Well done to all our Thornton pupils for playing the game with such humour and sportsmanship.
