Armidale is brimming with talented young hockey stars and a host of players have continued with this tradition in being selected to compete at a national level. 

Chelsea Thornton, Lily Neilson, Jake McCann and Nathan Czinner will line up for the under 15 NSW  team at the Australian Indoor Hockey Championships next January in Goulburn. 

The quartet were also named in the outdoor under 15 NSW squads for the Australian National Championships in Wollongong next April. 

Joining the four in NSW will be Jake’s younger brother who will line up in the under 13’s team at the indoor event with Fletcher Schultz named as a shadow. 

For Tyler it only adds to his busy schedule in the sport with the youngster just returning from the under 13 National Championships in Perth. 

Tyler was the only Hockey New England representative at the carnival and captained the NSW team. He was also named player of the match five times by his opponents.
