Eight Worksop College students from Year 7-9 travelled to Repton for a coaching conference with GB Hockey Gold medallists from Rio, Alex Danson, Hollie Webb, Shona McCallin and Ellie Watton.
How fortunate they were to be able to get some expert coaching and actually play with them. The GB ladies were encouraging and commented on how good the skills of the Worksop contingency were. Maybe there might an Olympian for the future amongst them.
Mark Pymm, Director of Sport at Ranby House said ‘ To have the opportunity to meet and play with these iconic figures from the Olympics has no doubt inspired them to improve their skills and be the best they can be.’ He added, ‘I would like to thank Matt Taylor and the GB ladies for all their hard work on the day’.
