Lucy Trains with the England Hockey Team
Following her strong training performances at England Under 17 sessions over the last few months, Lucy Walton, Year 12, has been selected for an England training match against the England Under 16 team in February half term.
It has been an exciting Hockey season so far for Lucy. In addition to her Under 17 squad sessions she was one of just eight girls selected from the Under 17s to attend an England Under 18 training day earlier this month. She has also been attending England Hockey AASE (Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence) training sessions, which involve regular Monday night sessions in Birmingham and four weekends away at Lilleshall National Sports Centre and will result in a UCAS recognised qualification at the end of the year long programme.
To widen her experience, Lucy has joined Stourport Hockey Club, giving her the opportunity to play in National League matches. In fact last weekend she had the opportunity to compete in the National Indoor Club finals in Surrey representing the Stourport Under 18 team.
