BOHUNT School’s girls football team were one of the nominees for the School Team of the Year award at last week’s East Hampshire Districts’s Sport Awards, at Old Thorns Hotel.

The U13s were only formed in September 2016 and have gone from strength to strength.

They were undefeated in their league, winning all their games, as well as winning their cup final at Aldershot FC.

Bohunt head Neil Strowger told The Herald: “We are thrilled our U13 girl’s team have received this recognition in an area with so many excellent contenders.

“We are committed to providing our young people with opportunities to grow and flourish and this acknowledgement of the girl’s merit builds on our sports teams’ recent success.

“Bohunt’s U13 girls’ immediately bonded as a team and as a result their performances as a squad have been formidable. They were undefeated in their league, winning all their games very convincingly.

“We saw a whole squad performance leading to a fantastic win over Weydon School.

“Additionally, the girls were lucky enough to make it through the third round of the English Schools Cup - a very tight match, although it resulted in a loss for the girls.”

Bohunt School PE teacher Rebecca Dick added: “Throughout all of this success, the girls continued to be as polite and level-headed as they have always been, always playing within the rules and showing the upmost respect for officials and the opposition at all games.

“Their hard work and commitment to working as a team has developed them all, both as players but also young women in and around the community.

“The team should be proud of their achievements, and to be shortlisted to one of three school for the School Team of the Year award is a huge honour.

“As a PE department and as a school, we are extremely proud of them, and look forward to watching them develop over time.”
