Tom selected in National Schools Squad
1stXI Stamford School midfielder – Thomas MacDonald - has been selected for the Swifts U’18s tour of Belgium and Holland. The Swifts tour selects the best U’18s hockey players from around England to tour Europe for a week during this season. The Swifts Sports Trust is a separate trust, set up in the 1960's to support representative or semi-representative overseas tours by teams from a mix of schools in the UK.
Ex-Great Britain and England hockey international and Stamford 1stXI coach Jon Peckett said, ‘This is a fabulous achievement for Tom; his talent has clearly shone through and, I and the school, wish him every success on this European tour.’
The Swifts U’18s tour party will play against some formidable age-group opposition, in the form of world-class clubs like Bloemendaal and Oranje Zwart Under 18s.
