Young village resident and sportwomen, Ellen Mans (9 years old) has added to her recent golf and RLYC sailing successes.

On Sunday 19th April, Ellen played for Bournemouth Hockey Club, and represented Dorset, in the U10 Hockey team which went on to win the 2014/2015 Western England Regional Finals at Clifton College, Bristol. 

The team managed to keep a clean sheet until 2 minutes from time in the Final against Wiltshire and were the only team to remain unbeaten in the day. The team beat Cornwall 1-0, Devon 2-0, Somerset 1-0, Avon 1-0, Glos 0-0 & Herefordshire 2-0 to go through as group winners

The Semi Finals were 8 minutes each way and the team played Wiltshire 2 winning 3-0 and in the Final Wiltshire 1. Just before half time Bournemouth Hockey Club went ahead and Wiltshire equalised with 2 minutes to go. A nerve racking penalty shoot-out ensued, which Bournemouth went on the win, and to be crowned Regional (West) England U10 Hockey Champions!

To add to her sporting endeavours, Ellen has also played and won her first Dorset EZGO Golf Tour of 2015 at Iford on April 12. She went round in 36 - 14 shots ahead of her nearest opponent. 

On April 7th she played in and won her first Junior Competition at Barton Golf Club where her handicap has already been cut from 36 to 32! 

And on April 18th Ellen was invited to attend the U10’s Girls Hampshire County Tennis Camp tennis trials at Winchester last Saturday. With a bit of luck she may be selected to play in the Aegon County Cup in May for her home County.
