King’s Ely’s Rebecca Daniel scores for England Hockey

Posted: 22nd June 2017

King’s Ely are celebrating after pupil Rebecca Daniel played for the Under-16s England Hockey team – and contributed to the team’s victory. Sixteen-year-old Rebecca was previously selected for the England Saxon Tiger Squad for the Futures Cup but her impressive skills on the pitch then saw her being chosen for the England Age Group Squad of 26 players. In May 2017 Rebecca played for England in matches against the Ulster Under-17s. England won all three games and Rebecca scored a superb solo goal in the second of the three matches. Director of Sport at King’s Ely Senior, Ben Edmondson, said: ‘Rebecca is an outstanding all round athlete who has achieved a great deal of success in all sports she has competed in. Her representation for England Hockey National Age Groups is the pinnacle of these achievements and is testament to the hard work and effort she puts into all that she does. We are extremely proud of her achievements.’
