Bournemouth Hockey Club’s very own Nick Nurse and Martha Taylor have been selected to represent the Wessex Leopards in the Futures Cup tournament which is taking place between 23rd and 26th August.
The Futures Cup is a four day event which sees six squads battle it out to be crowned winners. It is often the pinnacle to the Player Pathway and for many players it will be their first experience of an intense tournament style competition of this scale. The National age group coaches attend this tournament to select for the England U16 and U18 squads.
Nick is already used to playing at this level having been selected for the England U16 National hockey squad. Read more about his achievements here.
Following the tournament players will return to Performance Centre training unless they are no longer eligible (aged 18).
