Hockey Girls Represent Leicestershire
Five Stamford High School students were selected for the U14 Leicestershire Hockey Squad to play in the inter-county Midlands Tournament on the 19th May. The girls were; Allys Ceraldi, Rhona Kelly, Maeve Macdonald, Sophie Skelton (all Y8) and Charlie Crombie (Y9) was selected to captain the Leicestershire team.
Eight teams competed in the tournament including Shropshire, Birmingham & West Midlands, Worcestershire and Nottinghamshire. Leicestershire smashed their way through to the finals, winning every match, but unfortunately they were defeated 2-0 by Derbyshire in the final.
The girls are now looking forward to pre-season hockey training with their Stamford High School team mates in August. They will be in for a treat as Olympic Bronze Medallist, Crista Cullen, will be joining them for the five day training at Wellington College.
Lucy Hornby, Head of Hockey at Stamford High School, said: “The girls have worked extremely hard to get to where they have in the County set up and thoroughly deserve the recognition. County representation at this age group sets them in great stead for their future hockey careers we’re extremely proud of how far they have come.”
