Trio called up to North Wales hockey squads
October 26, 2021

Three Rydal Penrhos pupils have earned regional recognition in hockey after impressing coaches during recent trials.

Rydal Penrhos has a rich and proud history of success in a sporting environment. This bears special significance in Hockey, with the school developing a large number of Welsh youth internationals over the years and winning multiple Welsh Schools National Championships over the last decade.

This is something the school takes great pride in. Sport and physical exercise remain a huge part of the day-to-day activities throughout Rydal Penrhos, which makes the most of some exceptional facilities and promotes positive wellbeing in the process.

There was further cause for celebration just before the half-term break, with three pupils earning call ups to North Wales regional hockey squads after impressing considerably during the trial process.

Eve Durrans and Lily Davies will represent the region at U16 level, which is the latest in a series of outstanding accolades for the Year 11 duo.

Both pupils have been part of the Hockey Wales 360˚ programme in Colwyn Bay in recent years, which was an essential component of the organisation’s talent development pathway, helping support and develop aspiring stars to achieve their potential.

Eve and Lily were both nominated for a Wales National Age Group level squad thanks to their outstanding progress and attended a Hockey Wales U16 assessment event at Malvern College.

Rounding off the Rydal Penrhos success was Elsi Pyves, who was successful in earning a place on the North Wales U18 squad, something she worked incredibly hard to achieve.

The North Wales hockey squads have already begun training in readiness for some upcoming fixtures, which also includes a prestigious inter-counties tournament in Lancashire later this year.

On behalf of everyone at Rydal Penrhos, we would like to congratulate Elsi, Eve and Lily and their squad selections.
