FIVE Heysham High School students have been selected to train with the Lancashire Hockey Academy.

Mollie Harrison, Amy Cross, Shannon Pickerill, Jayde Christeansen and Rosie Graham attended the Lancashire Junior Development Centre for 12 hours of coaching and fitness training.

They were selected to progress through to the Lancashire Hockey Academy for their age group.

The girls were all put to the test in ladder work, skill drills and game situations and were assessed to be of the standard required to be part of their age group squad.

They will now attend further training sessions as part of the Junior Academy Centre for Lancashire.
