14 Jul 2019
 
Congratulations to junior member Tilly Butterworth who has been selected for the Saxon Tigers Girls Under 15 squad to participate in the Futures Cup. The Futures Cup is a 4 day tournament involving 4 teams made up of the top age group players from across the country and will take place in August. 
 
Tilly's selection is the culmination of attendance at Performance Centre coaching sessions held in Ipswich across the season and selection matches that have taken place against teams from a couple of other Performance Centres. 
 
We wish Tilly the best of luck at the Futures Cup. 
 
Congratulations and good luck to our former member Daisy Ford (GK) who has also been selected.

Congratulations to our Norwich City HC 1st XI players for making the England Hockey Mixed Squad
11 Jul 2019
 
Congratulations to Norwich City HC 1st XI players Alastair Cooke, Thomas Cooke, Cameron Cooke and Ellie Brine for being selected into the England Mixed Hockey Squad for this summer, with special mention that Thomas Cooke who has been asked to Captain the side.  
 
Well done, it is great to see members of our club again this season and previous seasons continuing to be selected for the England Mixed Hockey squads. Lots of hard work over recent months at training sessions and trials fixtures has clearly paid off. 
 
It was also good to see how well our own Norwich City Mixed XI performed in a very close 0-1 loss against the England Mixed XI in a recently played friendly fixture at TRF, very end to end and a balanced game, so whilst it was good to see our own club team mates playing in their England Mixed kit it was great to see how well our own Mixed XI played against them.
