CANFORD School's rugby, hockey and netball teams have been collecting more silverware during a trophy-laden term of success.

All three netball teams – the under-19s, under-16s and under-14s – are through to the regional championships, the under-14 girls' hockey team are the west of England and county champions, while Canford's Colts rugby side have won the county championship for a second year running.

The under-18 and under-16 girls' hockey teams also made it through to the county finals but narrowly missed out on glory at regional level.

In the netball, the under-19s secured wins against Poole High, Woodroffe and Sherborne to finish as county runners-up, while the under-16s beat Sherborne 10-2 and under-14s trumped Parkstone 11-1 in their finals to go one better. The regionals take place in Cornwall on January 30.

In the hockey, the under-14s girls reached the west final without conceding against Cheltenham, Helston, Guernsey Ladies, Marlborough, Blundell's and King's Taunton before beating Dean Close 3-2 on penalty strokes following a 1-1 draw.

The under-16s won through to the west preliminaries as county runners up but just missed out on the full tournament after losing to Millfield. The under-18s took their title in impressive fashion but narrowly lost out at the preliminaries on goal difference following a three-way tie.

The Colts A rugby side enjoyed wins against Portsmouth Grammar (50-0), Millfield (32-24), Hampton (15-7), Dauntsey's (31-7), Bryanston (29-5) and Marlborough (28-7) but topped those triumphs with a comfortable 43-14 win against Sherborne for the county crown.

Canford's director of sport Mark Burley said: "With more than 350 matches, regattas and galas over the course of the term, and more than two thirds of the school involved in competitive match play on Saturdays, it has certainly been a very busy and highly successful term at all sporting levels.

"We congratulate all the Canfordians who have contributed to these fine sporting achievements against strong sides at both school fixture, county and regional levels."
