Year 10 hockey star, Laura C, has been called up to the England U16 Girls Hockey Team.

The Midfielder made the final selection after passing various assessments including drills on different parts of the game, 11-aside matches and a 10pitch length fitness test. 

Laura, who started playing hockey in Year 3, is part of the squad that will play matches against Nottingham University, on Saturday 5th June and then against Wales and Scotland in July.

"It’s really exciting to have been selected to play for my country," said Laura.

"I am really looking forward to playing some really high-quality hockey games and training and working hard to show my hockey skills." 

As part of the national team, Laura must complete a weekly physical strength and running programme and will also get to enjoy day and overnight camps with her teammates.

Head of Hockey, Mr Wood, said: "After an exceptionally challenging year, Laura has remained focused, worked hard and achieved her goal.

"She has done amazingly to reach the England U16 team at such a young age and I hope she enjoys the opportunity of representing her country this summer.  Hopefully, this is just the beginning and more is yet to come as she improves."
