This year, schools from all over Ceredigion entered the '4689' Hockey Festivals. These festivals provided an opportunity for children to try out hockey skills and play small sided games. Once the initial cluster festivals were completed, teams from each cluster were invited to attend a final, which was held in Lampeter on Wednesday 20th May, 2015.
The schools involved final were: Llandysul Primary, Llanwnnen, Talybont, Ciliau Park and Llanwenog. Ysgol Llanwnnen proved too strong on the day and went unbeaten so went through with maximum points. Ysgol Talybont were close behind them.
The day was very successful, with a high standard of hockey being played by all children. Hockey has received a real boost recently in Ceredigion with many children attending after school clubs in Synod Inn, Lampeter, Tregaron and Aberystwyth. Hockey Wales’ Young ambassadors, Lleucu Aeron, Chloe Campbell & Aimee Campbell helped run the festivals.
Ysgol Llanwnnen and Ysgol Talybont went on to represented Ceredigion at the West is Best Regional Finals Day in Carmarthen on the Tuesday 9th June, 2015
Teams from Swansea, Carmarthen, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion were represented at the 'West is Best' finals day. All the children improved with each game they played and thoroughly enjoyed the day. Llanwnnen played very well, winning their group and went on to play Llandovery School in the semi-finals. They managed to win 1-0 to progress through to the final against Oakleigh House School Swansea.
It was no score at full time and even after extra time they couldn’t be separated. Therefore, Llanwnnen and Oakleigh House were awarded joint winners. This was a fantastic result for Llanwnnen, as they are only a small school and played an exceptionally high standard of hockey throughout the day. Congratulations to all involved.
