ROYAL Grammar School Worcester’s London 2012 Olympic Great Britain bronze medalist Sally Walton is gearing up for the Jaffa Super Sixes Trophy indoor hockey finals.

Walton plays for Bowdon Hightown in front of more than 2,500 spectators on Sunday at London’s Copper Box Arena.

Thirty pupils from RGS will be cheering on their teacher who is head of hockey coaching.

Walton knows the importance of building skills in indoor hockey.

She said: “The emphasis we have placed on indoor hockey at RGS Worcester over the past four years has in my opinion massively improved the overall standard of hockey in both the indoor and outdoor formats.”

At RGS the training paid off when their under 16s and 18s teams achieved a place in the England national indoor hockey finals as one of the top 10 schools in the country.

Since retiring from international hockey in 2015 Walton has been a revelation in the women’s indoor game, scoring 115 goals in 60 games.

In the last six seasons the 38-year-old has finished top scorer four times.

She goes into the game on Sunday as top scorer with 21 goals and will be playing to regain the trophy — a prize Bowdon Hightown have won twice over the last five years.

A school spokesman said: "Everyone at RGS Worcester wishes her a top match and will be watching on tenterhooks."
