Henry Frost has become the latest Pelicans player to progress in the England hockey set-up.

Frost has been selected for the Under 16’s Saxon Tigers regional squad.

He will now attend some training weekends over the coming weeks before playing in the Futures Cup over the October half term at Cannock Hockey Club.

Chairman of Pelicans Hockey Club, Charles Lankfer, said: “Henry is the first boy to get to this level within the single system for many years and I congratulate him.

“This adds to the list of young players that have gone through the ranks from Pelicans to represent their country.”

Frost joined the first team squad midway through last season and is now a regular in the team, boasting great stick/ball coordination.

Through the coaching of Mark Jarvis, Frost has increased his skills and playing awareness and can now be found playing on both the left and right hand sides of the pitch causing mayhem for defenders.

England Hockey Futures Cup is a competition which forms part of Junior Regional Performance Centre (JRPC) Tier 2 activity.

The EHFC is for players in the U16 and U18 age groups, who are selected for squads from JRPC Tier 1, called Saxon Tigers, Pennine Pumas, Wessex Leopards and Mercia Lynx.

Phoebe Charnley, who started her career at Pelicans before moving to Cambridge City, has been selected for the Under 18 squad.
