It was a great weekend of District hockey for pupils India F and Susannah G-F, who were part of the Midland District that won the U18 Notts Sport Inter District at the National Hockey Centre in Glasgow.
Both girls had a fantastic weekend, and contributed to the winning score lines with three goals between them. However, unfortunately for India F (below right) and her team, she suffered an injury on the field and ended her event in hospital with torn liagments. She is now sporting some crutches but we are glad to say she is on the mend.
Pupil, Katherine W (below left) was also at the event playing for the Hybrid team in the U16 Inter District Tournament and performed very well over the course of the weekend. The hybrid team was made up of 3 players from each district and performed stongly as a unit despite a disappointing overall outcome for the team.
The Scottish Hockey’s Districts select their most promising young players to take part in the Notts Sport Inter-District event, where Scotland coaches select talent for development in international programmes, so it is a fantastic achievement for our selected pupils to have their skill and dedication rewarded.
