More than 200 children and their hockey sticks got together for a mini challenge, which saw some close fought games.

The sport is so popular, with some schools submitting more than one team, that there were three separate categories.

The main cup competition was a closely fought event with several matches going to extra time and penalties.

Cup 2015 champions were Broughton, with Sherwood in second place and Moor Nook third.
