A former KGGS student is set to represent England under-21s in the forthcoming World Cup competition in Germany at the end of the month.
And to top that, 21-year-old Shona McCallin, of Dry Doddington, has been chosen to captain the side that will take on the top 16 hockey playing countries in the world.
In the opening pool matches, Shona’s England side can expect tough opposition, having been grouped with Germany, Spain and Belgium.
Shona has already left the country to join her team-mates at the England holding camp in Monchengladbach where practice matches will be played.
Midfielder Shona (pictured) is now in her third season playing for Dutch Premier Division club MOP.
