Two gifted Oakhamians, Becca and Tilly, have been selected from their Performance Centres to play in the Futures Cup, run by England Hockey. The tournament, which runs over four days from 21 August, will see six squads compete for the winning title. This is a prime opportunity for players to be selected by the National Age Group coaches for assessments in September. Becca is representing the U17 Pennine Pumas, and Tilly is representing the U15 Pennine Pumas.
Director of Hockey, James Bateman, who is Head Coach of the U15 Boys Pennine Pumas said “I am delighted that the girls have successfully demonstrated their potential and have been selected for the competition, which is great experience for them. It is fantastic that Oakham continues to be the training ground for these squads.”
