Outfield player Jake Davey and Goalkeeper Ollie Juszt have made the final selection for the England U16 Team, and will be playing the following matches;
British Colleges Game in Loughborough in June
Germany Game in Cologne in July
6 Nations games in Nottingham in July.
Huge congratulations to Oliver and Jake who have endured 7 months of intensive training to reach this point, and both have been kept on when England culled the squad in January.
Ollie Juszt is a year younger than the rest of the squad, and both Jake and Ollie have come through the junior section at IES, to play and be a part of the 1s squad in recent years.
Junior Head Coach Tony Burch said “I have been working with Jake and Ollie for a number of years, and it is such a proud moment for me personally and everyone involved at IES to hear such wonderful news. Both Jake and Ollie have matured and developed on the pitch into fantastic hockey players, and both still have so much to offer. They are both integral figures for IES as the club moves forward.”
