Five students at Richard Huish College, in Taunton, have been selected to represent England – four in hockey and one in cricket.

Upper sixth student Niamh Holland will be flying out to South Africa in January to represent England Cricket in the Women’s Under 19 T20 World Cup. Niamh who is studying the BTEC Sport, Exercise and Coaching course also plays domestic cricket for Western Storm and is aiming to turn professional on completion of her studies.

Second-year students Millie Aspden and Alec Evans return to the AoC England Colleges squad after playing last season. Joining them will be first-year students Nel Woodgate-Jones and Natalie Carillo.

Additionally, first-year student Vincent Yates is on the non-travelling reserves list.

The students will compete in the British Colleges fixtures against Wales and Scotland and will also attend training camps with games against university sides.
