Former GYC student and captain of the College hockey team (2015) Jack Welch continues his journey towards senior international selection.

Jack is one of two Tasmanian players to have been named in an Australian development squad that sits just below the Kookaburras squad.

According to the Mercury (Saturday 10 June), both players, Jack and Kurt Mackey, have “lit up the Premier League” in the early rounds. Jack scored 10 goals from as many games.

Kookaburras’ coach Colin Batch said that both players were in contention for a tour going to Europe in August.
