Hockey

15 A

The U15 A team have had a mixed bag of results so far with some very close matches against Brighton, Lord Wandsworth and Eastbourne. The greatest successes have been wins over Christ's Hospital, Lingfield and Seaford with the latter showcasing the best team effort so far to achieve a 3-2 win.

U15 B vs Seaford

A fantastic display from the entire team saw Worth come out triumphant with a 4-0 win. Worth were dominant throughout and had many chances to score. Clara A broke the deadlock and was instrumental in her play as Centre Forward, scoring 2 of the 4 goals. Marta B and Holly B also worked hard to score the other 2 goals. Stalwart defence from Sinead R meant that the Seaford attack hardly got a look-in.

15 C vs Lingfield

The 15 C’s played extremely well against Lingfield creating lots of opportunities from exploiting the width of the pitch. An early goal from Jessica H was the difference between the two sides. Some solid defending and sound goalkeeping enabled a clean sheet for the C’s

15 C vs Seaford

The team's best performance of the year demonstrated the progress that the team have made over the last few weeks. Some strong attacking play was highlighted by two excellent goals. The defence again were outstanding, consistently thwarting Seaford attacks.

1st XI vs Seaford

Worth had a large share of the possession in the first half but struggled to create clear opportunities. The break through finally came in the last minute of the half when Harriet P pounced on a short corner rebound to win a Penalty Stroke which was converted by Claudie C. In the second half Worth exploited the space much more effectively and created some fantastic opportunities that were well converted.

1st XI vs Tormead (national Cup)

A dominant display with slick passing manoeuvres and excellent finishing saw Worth comfortably through to the next round with a 9-0 win. Hat-tricks from Amber B and Claudie C and one a piece for Ciara M, Ciara H and Sophie H-B sealed the deal.

2nd XI vs Seaford

The best performance from the team this season with excellent play across all lines resulting in a 2-2 draw. The defence, led by Anna R and Meg H, worked tirelessly to keep out Seaford's advances and to supply the ball to midfield and forwards. Hareem A and Jemima L scored the 2 goals, both showcasing fantastic finishing skills in the D.

Rugby

Rugby currently has 4 unbeaten teams the U16 B, U15 A, U15 B and U14 C! The U15 A’s are also through to the 3rd Round of the NatWest National Vase competition.

A huge thank you to all players, supporters and coaches for making a great start to 2019-20.
