Corkill named in reduced England squad

Leeds University, Isle of Man and Bacchas Hockey player Louise Corkill has been named in a reduced England under-21 squad of 29 for the Junior World Cup in Germany later this year.

Louise has attended several training weekends at Lilleshall to reach this stage in the selection process.

A final training assessment day will take place on Sunday when the squad will be whittled down to the 22 players who will begin preparations for the tournament in late July and early August in Monchengladbach.

That will include training camps and games against Germany, Wales, Holland, Belgium and the England seniors before moving to a holding camp in Germany.
