Seventeen Framlingham College pupils have been selected to attend the new England Hockey Performance Centre in Bury St Edmunds.
The new system sees the most promising twenty-four athletes from the U15 & U17 age groups training together and playing regularly in a highly competitive environment. The new system is hoping to develop an oversupply of talented players for the International game over the coming years and the first target for those involved will be to get selected for the new look Futures Cup competition that will take place in late August 2017. The College’s Head of Hockey, Jamie Kingstone, has been appointed as the Head Coach of the new Centre.
Nick Gandy, Director of Sport at the College, said, ‘We are exceptionally proud that so many of our pupils have been invited to be involved in this new initiative. We are also delighted that Jamie has been appointed to such a prestigious role and this further cements our burgeoning reputation as one of the leading Hockey schools.’
