Three Framlingham College girls have been selected to play for England this week.
Year 11, Molly Redgrove (16) has been selected for the U16 squad to play against Germany, Belgium and in the Six Nations Tournament this summer. Year 10, Rose Winter (14) has also been picked for the U16 squad for the Germany test series and the Six Nations Tournament. Year 11, Abby Gooderham (16) has been included in the U18 squad for the test series against Germany and this is the final opportunity to impress before the European Cup squad is selected.
Simon Sinclair, Director of Sport at Framlingham commented, “Sport at Framlingham College is thriving and these three girls have excelled over the last year and we are very excited for them all. Under the watchful eye of our Head of Hockey, Jamie Kingstone, they have been working tirelessly to develop their all round game. Having the experience of the Senior Deputy Head, Susan Wessels who has supported the girls and played with them at Harleston Magpies last season has also helped the girls tremendously. These achievements inspire our younger pupils to follow in their footsteps.”
Susan, who herself was a double Olympic hockey player and Captain for South Africa added. “All of us at Framlingham are extremely proud of what these girls have achieved. They have all worked extremely hard to get where they are today and I know that they will cherish every moment of representing their country on the hockey field – it is a wonderful experience!”
