Over the last year I have continued to be involved with the England u18 programme where we finished our season at the European championships in Holland coming 4th.
I have been invited to train with the u21's squad where I hope to be selected for the junior world cup next year.
After a successful summer, I have now been selected for the England U18 squad for the coming year despite being a year young!
I have also started playing for the Exeter university national league team. Therefore I have a lot of travelling ahead for training and matches, locally and internationally I have really appreciated the funding from T5Sc and have benefitted greatly from it.
16 year old Taunton resident Tom, currently plays hockey for Taunton Vale Mens 1st XI and U18s, and England U16 XI.
Although the international season is just getting going, he has already attended a number of England U16 Hockey camps and played in a series of matches against Holland and Ulster.
