Talented Hockey Player Selected for Shropshire U16 Boys

There are exciting times ahead for a young and talented North Shropshire Hockey player from Whitchurch, who has been chosen to join the Shropshire U16 squad, who has played in the  recent National Indoor Finals and who will play in the forthcoming Midlands Outdoor Finals for his League Club, whilst also becoming a UK brand ambassador for a Dutch clothing company.

Year 11 pupil, Cameron Beswick started to play hockey in 2008, both at school and at Whitchurch Hockey Club, where he was presented with the award for Junior Club Member of the Year at the end of the 2010 - 2011 season. He then transferred to play League Hockey for Cannock Hockey Club and in recognition of his considerable ability, this season has achieved selection for their U16 Performance squad, for both outdoor Field Hockey and Indoor Hockey. Cameron has also played in the clubs Mens Hockey team and is currently training hard to compete in the Midlands Outdoor Finals in March.

At County level, Cameron represented Shropshire in the U15 Boys' Hockey team for the 2011 season. At the end of last year, he completed Junior Development Centre training with both Shropshire and Staffordshire from which he has achieved County selection again and will represent Shropshire U16 boys for the 2012 season, having been offered the opportunity to represent Staffordshire but opting to remain in the Shropshire squad.

In addition Cameron continues to train with Whitchurch Hockey Club and plays for their Fathoms team, a non-league side, whenever his schedule allows.

Beyond his success on the hockey playing fields, Cameron has been presented with the interesting opportunity to act as a brand ambassador as part of the Dutch Sport and Fashion brand Field and Hockey, a casual clothes brand that will have its UK launch in the near future. Cameron is the youngest of 3 sponsored athletes from Cannock Hockey Club to be chosen for this role.

Camerons Housemaster, Ian Roberts commented, Cameron is a talented young hockey player who works hard consistently to improve his skill. We wish him well for the forthcoming Midlands Outdoor Finals.
