County honour for pupils

Nine Brandeston Hall pupils are celebrating being selected for Suffolk’s under-13 and under-14 hockey squads.

Following a series of trials over four weekends, Liberty Salsby, Lottie Summers, India Ball, Martha Lawrence, Jolyon Summers, Will Donsworth, Charlie Kilham, Archie Winter and Will Simpson have all been selected from the Framlingham-based school.

The girls’ first team at Brandeston were Suffolk champions this year and are current East of England champions, while the boys’ first team, who were unbeaten last year, have made an excellent start to their season with a 10-0 victory over RHS Holbrook.

Master in Charge of Hockey at the school, Tom Gregory, said: “This is a tremendous achievement for both the boys and girls and for Brandeston Hall.
