Hockey Player Joins U18 National Squad
Monday, 13 September 2021
Congratulations to Year 13 hockey player Max Turner, who has been selected for England Hockey’s U18 National Age Group Squad. The group of sixty-one young players was selected following the School Games and Futures Cup. Performances at these two tournaments allowed the England Age Group coaches to identify players to go forward for future observation and assessment.
Max will now work with the Age Group Squad through further training, with the aim of making it into the final training squad later in the year.
He has previously played for Bolton Hockey Club on the 2nd XI, where he earned the Players’ Player Award in the summer of 2020. He moved last season to Brooklands Manchester University Hockey Club to try and achieve a higher playing standard, and since then has jumped up two levels. Through the England Hockey Single System, he has attended the Junior Development Centre, Junior Academy Centre and Performance Centre before being selected for the Pennine Pumas, which represent the best of the North Performance Centres.
His sister Erin in Year 10 and older brother Ben Turner (Class of 2020) are also hockey players.
