Scots role for hockey boys

LORETTO School’s under-13 boys’ hockey team is to represent Scotland at the national finals.

The pupils became Scottish Preparatory Schools’ champions after beating off teams from Edinburgh and Perth.

The pupils will now compete in the National Prep Schools’ Hockey Finals in Somerset.

Director of external affairs at Loretto Jonathan Hewat said: “I am delighted that after all the hard work the boys have put in, they have been rewarded.”
