England pathway call up for Queen’s girls
Four girls from The Queen’s School, Chester, have been selected for the Regional England Performance Pathway for Hockey.
Masie MacDonald, 15, from Tattenhall, Francesca Davidson, 15, from Heswall, Isabel Gardiner, 16, from Chester, and Fiona Edge, 17, from Saltney Ferry will receive high quality training twice a week, spread across six months, and are aiming to be selected for their England national age group squads.
The new regional England hockey performance centre is based in Manchester for the top 24 hockey players in the region within their age group.
Head of PE Miss Glynn said: “We are so proud of the girls who are thoroughly enjoying the experience, building on the skills they have learnt in school and improving their game play at a higher standard.”
The girls’ great news comes on the back of school success in a number of recent hockey competitions:
The Queen’s U16 team were crowned North West hockey champions and the U13 team won the Cheshire U13 mini hockey championships, scoring 29 goals and conceding none in six games. They also became the Chester and District Indoor Hockey Champions after they scored 12 goals in four games while maintaining another clean sheet.
The U15 team also won the Chester and District Indoor Hockey Championship for their age group, while the U14 team came runners-up.
