Liskeard School and Community College student and former Caradon Hockey Club player Molly Walsh represented England in The Sainsbury's 2015 School Games held in Manchester over four days from 3-6 September.

Hockey is one of 12 sports played at the Sainsbury's National School Games. Students compete in an U17 competition with England, Scotland, Wales & Ulster battling it out. The England side beat Wales 4-1 and Ulster 3-1 in the classification matches to face Scotland in the final on Sunday going on to win the gold medal with another convincing 3-1 win.

The games seek to create an inspirational and motivational setting that not only provides elite young sports people with the opportunity to thrive and perform at the highest levels, but encourages more young people to take part and succeed in sport. The Youth Sport Trust has developed and organised the Sainsbury’s 2015 National School Games with support and funding from the National Lottery and Sport England.

Molly started playing hockey aged 8 with Caradon, building her experience through the continuously developing junior section of the club. By the age of 13 she was playing senior club hockey and over the next few years progressed from county to regional levels through the England Hockey Single System. Last year Molly was selected for the National Age Groups (NAGS) Academy where athletes benefit from high quality technical and tactical coaching led by England Hockey Development Coaches. This involved fifteen sessions at the nearest regional centre in Taunton during 2015. She has also been attending the Advanced Apprenticeship in Sporting Excellence (AASE) at Lilleshall National Sports Centre in Shropshire. This is a government funded apprenticeship scheme which involves four residential camps designed to directly measure the athletes ability to plan, apply and evaluate their development in hockey covering a range of modules and leading to NVQ certification. As a result of this dedication, Molly was selected to play for England under 17’s in the National School Games bringing home the gold medal.

All this has been done bearing in mind her academic studies at Liskeard School and Community College as well as her part time jobs as a life guard at Lux Park and Looe Bay Holiday Park.
