Zach Coulton, member of the La Trobe University Hockey Club VicLeague 1 Men’s squad, has been selected to represent Australia in the 2017 Under 21 Men’s team later this year.
Coulton was nominated and selected during the Country Australian Championships where he represented Victoria in Townsville in August. He was joined by another Gunner Jimmy Thomson who also represented Victoria.
“I feel very excited, as it will be the highest level of hockey I have ever played at and keen for the experience” said Coulton.
The Australian teams departs on the 8th of December to Fiji, with the tournament running from the 10th – 16th.
“It means a lot to me, representing Australia is a dream come true.”
