Former Llandudno Hockey player and Eirias High School pupil Ellie New has been selected to represent Wales at the upcoming Indoor European Hockey Championships.

New made her debut for the Welsh side back in 2013 and has since chalked up 20 caps for her country.

Wales will take on Scotland, Croatia and Belgium in pool B and will face Austria, England, Lithuania and Sweden from pool A on day two of the competition, which will be held in Brussels and runs from Friday to Sunday.

She said: "I first started playing Indoor hockey in order to develop my close skills with Llandudno Hockey club; the last three months have been very intense with balancing my studies at Leeds and travelling to the training sessions in Bath, Bristol and Cheltenham.

"This is a fabulous opportunity and one that I’m really looking forward to."
