National Premier League Hockey Player Joins Coaching Staff

Ben Wright, former Framlingham College 1st XI Captain in 2010 and 2011, has been recruited to coach hockey at the College. 

Ben played for Harleston Magpies for three years in the National League East Conference and in the season of 2011-2012 he was one of the youngest players ever to score fifteen goals in a season. After this success he was scouted for the 2012-2013 season to play for Southgate Hockey Club in north London in the National Premier League where he has played alongside the likes of Chris Hibbert, a former South African Captain, and Dan Shingles, who played for England and Great Britain.

To have a current National Premier League player coaching at the College is excellent, bringing current ideas to our hockey practices, and we are lucky to have someone of this caliber working for us.
