Martin’s kept busy as Repton eye prize
FORMER Great Britain international Martin Jones will have plenty to think about in the next few weeks.
As hockey director at Repton School, he will be preparing his charges in the build- up to their knockout semi- final against Kingston GS in the boys Under 18 National Cup, to be played at Lee Valley on April 26.
In addition, Repton will be fielding teams in the finals tournament at Under 16 and Under 14 level at Lee Valley that week. This means that the Derbyshire school are aiming to reach five outdoor finals after the success of the girls’ section, who took the national title at Under 18 and reached the final of the Under 16s.
