14-year-old Charlotte Taysom has recently been selected to be part of England Hockey’s Performance Centre programme, joining six other Taunton School players.

There are currently 17 Performance Centres across the country and goalkeeper Charlotte will join the Taunton Centre. These centres are known as England’s top training level for 14-17 year olds, where players attend regular evening training sessions and take part in weekend training and competition, meeting approximately twice a month.

Taunton School now has seven selected students who are part of the Taunton and Bristol centres. Elliot Foweraker, Director of Hockey, said: “It is great to have another addition to our performance centre players. Charlotte is our third goalkeeper into the system at this level, keeping Taunton School’s tradition of great goalies going strong!”

The players have been training both indoors and outdoors at Taunton School and the long term aim is to be selected for the Futures Cup which is the selection tournament for national age group squads.
