3 of our best Junior School hockey players, Pippa Brown, Francessca Cooke and Sophie Douglas, have had the honour of being selected for the Greater Manchester U12s development squad.
Speaking about the girls’ achievements, Junior School PE and Games teacher Mrs Claire Nicholls said:
We congratulate the girls for their success in being selected.
The process is a rigorous one consisting of a series of coaching sessions followed by two selection weekends, and it’s a great achievement to have gained a place on the Greater Manchester squad.
Before the Christmas break, Shivalika Takiar, Milly Cowell and Francessca Cooke also attended the Greater Manchester U11s hockey development course where, on the final day of their training, they were lucky enough to meet Team GB’s Olympic bronze medalist Nicola White.
