Talented young hockey players from Lowestoft have been officially accredited as young leaders in the sport.

Students from East Point Academy, in Kirkley, took part in the England Hockey Leadership Award scheme earlier this year.

They joined with players from The Hewett Academy and Jane Austen College in Norwich, and Cromer Academy, for the scheme in July.

Led by Hewett Academy teacher and England Hockey level three coach Mary Cheesman, they spent an intensive day on The Hewett Academy's astro pitch developing their leadership, coaching, umpiring, and team management skills.

The students received a certificate from England Hockey and will now support in PE lessons and fixtures across the Inspiration Trust's family of schools, as well as at the annual Trust tournament.
