National call-up for Leia

Earlston hockey player Leia Mackinnon has been selected to play against England later this month in Glasgow and in the European Championships in Santander, Spain, in July.

The selection is another feather in the cap for the Scottish Borders Hockey coaching set-up, which has been partly responsible for Leia gaining the skills and experience required for the national squad.

She is the only Borders player to be selected at this level, due to her talent, hard work and dedication.
