- Unstoppable Gympie hockey young guns ready to strike at next level
The two have long been standouts for their respective Gympie Hockey sides in Sunshine Coast-based competitions, and will now look to add another impressive feat to their resumes.
A post from the Gympie Hockey Facebook page late this week wished both Browne and Collyer well ahead of the trials.
“All the best to our two Gympie players, Matthew Browne and Kaitlyn Collyer, attending the QLD Under 18 Trials in Brisbane over the next three days,” the post read.
“The pair have been training the house down over the summer with Ben and our other state squad members.
“Have a great weekend, play well and enjoy the experience.”
Among other accomplishments Browne won a gold medal at the 2019 16 years and under National Secondary Schoolboys Hockey Championships, as part of a Queensland team who triumphed 4-2 over Victoria in the grand final.
Collyer’s achievements include making the Queensland development squad in 2019.
