Limavady Grammar School pupil Anna Nawn is delighted at being selected for the Ulster Hockey squad.

Over the last few years Head of PE at Limavady Grammar, Mrs S Moore said the school has been “developing a growing reputation for girls’ hockey throughout Ulster”.

Helping to add to this reputation is their newest star, 14-year-old Anna Nawn.

The Year 11 student joined the school in September 2014 having relocated from Oxford. Anna started playing hockey at the age of six, and progressed through the English hockey system which culminated in her being selected for the England U15 training camp in October last year at Leeds University.

Having gone as far as she could through the English system it was now time for her to try her hand in her newly-adopted country, said Mrs Moore.

“Anna was selected for the Ulster Hockey U15 Talent Development Programme which resulted in her being selected for Ulster U16s this summer. So far, she has played in a three-match test series against Scotland U16s and training matches against Lurgan, Mossley and Ulster Elks.”

Anna has now been selected to represent Ulster U16s at the 2015 Interprovincial Series, to be held at Three Rock Rovers in Dublin from the 16th to 18th October. There she will play matches against Munster, Connacht, South East and Leinster.

Mrs Moore said: “It has been some time since a Limavady Grammar School student has reached this level of hockey, so we wish Anna every success in the Inter-provincials and hope that Ulster brings the trophy home.”
