A YOUNG hockey prodigy is travelling the world doing his ‘favourite thing’.

Finn Wilson, 14, is currently playing with England’s under-14 ice hockey team, travelling the world to compete in the sport.

The Trinity St Edward’s pupil has just returned from winning a competition with the team in Finland - taking victory in the nation’s favourite sport - and is currently preparing to travel up to Scotland in June.

His mother, Natalie, told the Chronicle: “He used to prefer roller hockey, but when Covid hit he was worried the ring would shut down so gave ice hockey a go.

“He’s already competed in lots of tournaments, he was in Finland recently and Latvia before that.

“It’s his favourite thing.”

Unfortunately, the cost of the sport has restricted what exactly he can do, as the teenager tries his best to compete on the international stage.

“Hopefully he can go on and make this a career,” Natalie added.

“But the biggest issue is cost - it’s very expensive so he’s limited by what we can afford.

“We’re doing what we can, but right now it’s just about him focusing on training.”
