It’s been a summer of success so far for two of Chesterfield Hockey
Rising star Joe Morton has been selected to play for the Pennine Pumas Under 17 squad in the England Hockey Futures Cup later this month. The competition features the best young players in England, Wales and Scotland playing in six regional teams – the Pennine Pumas, Saxon Tigers, Mercia Lynx, Wessex Leopards, Celtic Jaguars (Wales) and Caledonian Cougars (Scotland). The tournament takes place in St Albans between the 21st and 24th August, where the England selectors will be casting a close eye on proceedings.
Joe also took part in a recent Home Nations tournament as part of the Diploma in Sporting Excellence (DiSE) program at Lilleshall national sports centre. The competition featured the DiSE teams England ‘Red’, England ‘White’ and England ‘Blue’ alongside England U16s, Scotland and Ulster. Joe captained England ‘Red’ and came away with a silver medal, losing to England U16s on penalties after the game was tied 2-2 in normal time. The event also forms part of the assessment process for the England U18s squad.
Lead junior coach Christian Battye – “Joe has worked incredibly hard on and off the pitch and should take great pride in his attitude and dedication to the sport. He has been a consistently high performer at junior regional level and to see him on that Pennine Pumas squad list and in the England ‘Red’ shirt was a proud day for the club too. His goal is to be selected for an England trial in September – he’s certainly on the right track to achieve that”.
There was also more good news with young umpire Esther Beardsley being appointed to officiate at the Futures Cup.
This comes after impressing during the regional Performance Centre Competition days and working incredibly hard over the past few seasons.
St Mary’s pupil Esther has also been promoted to the Performance Support Panel for young umpires in the Midlands.
Christian Battye – “Esther has really taken ownership of her own development over the last couple of years and it’s great to see her rewarded with a place at the Futures Cup. Being an umpire can be a pretty tough gig at times but Esther has a natural talent for it. She’s gained great experience with Chesterfield and Staveley Ladies HC over the past few seasons and we wish her all the best for the tournament”.
