Hockey girls earn Saxons selections
Coopers Coborn’s girls hockey section had more to celebrate this week after two of their players received call-ups for representative honours.
Hannah Bloy has been selected for the Saxon Tigers under-18 squad, to compete at England Hockey’s Futures Cup, while teammate Chloe Menear has been named in the Saxons under-17 squad and been asked to join the national age group academy.
The Upminster school won a national indoor title two years ago and were beaten finalists last year.
Their under-16s and under-18s, sponsored by Allen Ford, have already been crowned county champions this season and head to regional finals next month.
Coach Mark Menear said: “Both Helen (Biscoe) and I are very pleased for them after their continued effort over the last couple of years.”
Christine Ohuruogu and Mo Farah have been nominated for the BBC Sports Personality of the Year.
