Girls' Hockey - Belfast Area squads selection

Congratulations to Grosvenor hockey players Claire McKane and Holly McDowell, each of whom recently attained selection to the Belfast Schools’ Under 17 and Under 15 squads respectively, following a rigorous selection process earlier in the season.

Holly, Year Ten, who plays for the Schools’ under 15 team - coached by Miss Knox and Mrs McIlvenny - secured her place as goalkeeper for the Under 15 Belfast squad following trials held in March, while midfielder Claire, Year Twelve, who plays for the GGS 1st XI - coached by Miss Radcliffe and, previously, Mrs Hunter – gained her place on the Belfast Under 17 squad following trials held around the same time. 

Both girls now look forward to competing in their respective age-group tournaments, due to be held at Lisnargarvey hockey club in April, at which we wish them the best of luck.
