Congratulations to Tom Stephens (Y7), who recently competed in the Netherlands and the UK Ice Hockey Championships in Sheffield.
Excitingly, Tom has been invited to join the South West Under 15 trial program as a “first year” starting in September as a result of his recent outstanding performances.
In his first season playing at elite level Tom has performed extremely well, adapting very quickly to both the speed of the game and the much larger crowds ( 2,000 plus spectators at the match against Scotland). If he continues to develop at his current rate, he has a realistic chance of gaining selection for the full England program in 2017. He is already under the watchful eyes of the England coaches, who had even considered him for the England program from September this year but felt he would benefit from some more experience at the more elite level.
Prep School Headmaster Ian Silk said “we are very proud of Tom and will follow his progress with interest over the next 18 months.”
