Fourteen year old Ben was selected to play for the Wales U16 Hockey team that competed in the hockey tournament at the Abbeydale Sports Ground, Sheffield. Following the opening ceremony and the introduction of the individual players, the highly competitive matches were played on the blue and pink Olympic hockey pitch, known amongst the players as the “smurf turf”, which was relocated to Sheffield from the Olympic Park in Stratford, London.
Although the young Welsh team were beaten by Scotland and Ulster, they played well and thoroughly enjoyed the experience, including the receiving of a bronze medal on the final day of the tournament.
Ben is considered to be an outstanding hockey talent, and has been part of the Wales representative set-up for a number of years.
