This summer Ben played matches for Wales in the Futures Cup and the UK School Games and Rosie played in a three match Test matches v Ulster. Bea was in the Wales U16 training squad but didn’t get selected for any tournaments this time around and Floss narrowly missed out on selection at the Wales Trials.
Hockey Coach, Christ Marriott said ‘All four have worked tremendously hard to get this far and I have no doubt that if they continue to play and train as well as they are currently doing we will be seeing a lot more of them next summer’.
