SHC’s Maddie Long Selected for Junior World Cup
By Surbiton HC
Congratulations to Surbiton’s Maddie Long, who has been selected as part of a new-look England U21 squad to compete in the Junior World Cup in early April.
After the postponement of the event late last year, a number of the players originally selected have stepped up to the senior squad, including SHC’s Darcy Bourne and Sophie Hamilton.
Maddie is joined in the England U21 side by former Colts Emily Guckian (Harvard University) and Ella Burnley (Exteter University & Isca).
The Junior World Cup takes place in Potchefstroom, South Africa from 1st - 12th April. England take on the hosts in their opening pool game, followed by Ireland and Ukraine. The playoff matches take place from 7th April onwards.
From all at the club, good luck to Maddie and her England team mates!
