Marco and Noah Selected For Warwickshire U13 Hockey Team
Marco Rodriguez-Hernandez and Noah Windley have been selected for Warwickshire Hockey’s U13 Academy Squad after attending trials at the end of last year.
Securing a spot in the county line-up is no mean feat, and Marco and Noah who are both only 11-years-old have earned the honour a whole two years ahead of some of their Warwickshire Hockey U13 squad peers.
In recognition of their selection Crescent’s Headmaster Joe Thackway presented the boys with their County tie in the school’s assembly.
The boys said, “We are really pleased and proud to have been selected for the County Squad.”
Both are now both attending regular County training sessions and will be introduced to England Hockey’s Player Pathway, a development programme that helps junior players realise their potential and they are both looking forward to their first matches.
Head of Sport, Matt Phillips commented, “Hockey is one of many sports we play here at the Crescent and the boys are key members of our U11 team. They are talented players with excellent technical skills and that has clearly been recognised by the County selection team. This is a fantastic achievement; their success is thoroughly deserved.”
