County Success for Stroud Youngsters

Two youngsters from Stroud Hockey Club represented Gloucestershire County U15s at the West tournament held at Millfield School in Somerset on Sunday. Calum Norman and Fin Dixon helped Gloucestershire to a fine second place, only losing out on victory by a single point in the round-robin competition which pitched them against eventual winners Somerset, Avon, Dorset, The Channel Islands, Herefordshire and Devon. Fin and Calum did themselves proud with strong performances throughout the day. Calum was named captain for the tournament, a real accolade for him and Stroud Hockey Club. He scored 3 goals during the day, making him Gloucestershire?s top scorer, with Fin striking a goal himself in the final game against Herefordshire to crown a fine day?s hockey. Calum has been asked to attend the JRPC Regional Development Centre sessions to be held in Bristol during the summer. Congratulations to both of them on a fine achievement and Stroud Hockey Club look forward to helping their development next season, with Fin joining Calum in the Men?s teams after several years in the Badgers U16 setup.
Calum's inclusion in the Men's 2nd XI this season is proof, should any be needed, that the progression from Badgers to Senior hockey at Stroud is flourishing.
