ASPEN TO PLAY FOR SCOTLAND

King’s Rochester student, Aspen Cumming, has been selected to play Hockey for Scotland in the women’s U18 Series against opponents Wales and Switzerland.  The games will be played in Cardiff from 14th-16th April.

Aspen was selected for the Scotland training squad last October and since then has attended four training days and also a two day training camp. She has suitably impressed the selectors to secure her place at this first international series.

Both Aspen’s parents are Scottish and she is delighted to represent Scotland at International Level. Aspen is a regular player in the King’s Rochester 1st XI team and plays her club hockey at local club, Holcombe.  Mike Hebden, Director of Sport at King’s Rochester says “Aspen is an incredibly dedicated sportswoman and a real role model within the school environment. We are delighted that Aspen has been rewarded for her hard work in this way and we can't wait to see her represent Scotland over the Easter Holidays.”

Away from the hockey pitch, Aspen is in the Lower Sixth at King’s and busy studying for four A levels in addition to being a Music Scholar playing Violin at Grade VIII and Piano at Grade VI standard.
