FUTURES CUP SQUAD ANNOUNCEMENT 2018
Head Coaches Lee Ible and Gwyn Williams have officially announced the 2018 Futures Cup squads, competing at Oakland College, St Albans between 22nd -25th August. The young hockey talent from Wales will play under the banner of Celtic Jaguars, competing in both the Boys and Girls events at U15 and U17 level.
This is the third year the Celtic Jaguars have been part of the event, which is the perfect environment for the players to compete against their peers from across Great Britain. The 4 day tournament is designed to give the players high intensity competition, which supports their development as players.
For many of the Welsh players this is their first event that they compete in as a Wales National Age Group player and it is a fantastic platform for the players to showcase their talent, whilst learning about competing in tournament hockey.
Performance Lead Fern Burrage, is looking forward to the event and believes it’s the ideal arena to assist the development of Wales NAG athletes.
The Futures Cup provides us with a level of competition which is of huge benefit to our young players. Playing 3 matches of high intensity games in 4 days is a challenge, but will provide them with invaluable experience similar to what they’ll face at International Tournaments. I’m looking forward to catching all our squads in action, it’s an exciting time with many new and young players coming through our pathway competing in this event
