Congratulations to Frances Livera, Joe Barker, James Marsden and Harry Renwick who were all recently selected to play in the Leeds Pumas Hockey teams (equivalent to representing Yorkshire) following an intense course of summer hockey training at Leeds Weetwood at the JRPC Leeds Hockey Centre (Junior Regional Performance Centre) which is part of the England Hockey Single System training and selection process.
Harry is playing for the U15 Leeds Pumas whilst the other three are representing the Leeds Pumas at U17. Following their selection to the squads, the teams now play, over two weekends, against the Manchester and Durham Pumas in a mini tournament.
At these weekend all of the players are watched and assessed by Centrally Contracted Coaches and Selectors from England Hockey, to choose a final squad to represent the Pennine Pumas (North England). This will result in the successful ones attending a HiPAC weekend at U15 and U17 or playing in the Futures Cup against the 3 other regional squads at U16 and U18.
Good luck to all four for next weekends final matches and selection.
