The summer holidays saw a flurry of representative hockey involving a number of West Buckland boys and girls.
After the success of Charlie T and Sam S in the boys tournament, Emily Sh, Emily B and Emily St all competed in the Nottingham U13 hockey festival for the representative team West Panthers. From this Emily St was selected to play for UK Lions this coming season and had her first training session with the Lions last weekend. This is a fantastic achievement and we congratulate her. West Buckland are proud to sponsor the UK Lions team shirts.
Emily Sh, Emily B and Emily St all competed in the Nottingham U13 hockey festival for the representative team West Panthers, which is based down in Exeter and has a history of West Buckland students playing for them.
Prior to this, Charlie T and Sam S had had success in the boys tournament, a great performance all round by our hockey stars.
Luke S and Noah D both were selected to play in the Challenge Cup tournament, which is part of the England Talent Pathway, and spent three days in the heatwave playing some very intense hockey! In addition, Luke played as part of the Wessex Spartans in the Y1 championship, and his team won the U16 boys competition in this inaugural event, where several of the premiership teams with England players were also competing.
