OLTON and West Warwicks hockey player Julie Whiting represented Wales Under-18’s at the recent UK Schools Games in Gateshead.

The 15-year-old, who attends Solihull School, competed in the game against Scotland which resulted with a goalless draw.

Julie also featured for Wales Under-16’s in a test series against Ireland in Dublin before being called up into the Under-18 side.

Hockey aside, Julie has also been invited to join the CBSO youth chorus after attending auditions.

She claimed: “It’s great to be involved with so much, but I have to get the balance right.

“It’s back to the school work for my GCSEs whilst looking forward to the season ahead and the CBSO chorus rehearsals and concerts.”

She’s pictured left competing for the ball against Scotland.
