SMAE Student Matthew Bell helps Irish Hockey team Achieve Unbeaten Run In World League Championship

5/05/2017


Our own Matthew Bell, Stage 4 MEng Mechanical Engineering student played a storming defensive role at the recent World League 2 hockey championships in Belfast where Ireland achieved an undefeated tournament run!  The next major tournament laying ahead for Matthew with the Green Machine is the World League Semi Finals in Wits Hockey Club, Johannesburg where the reigning World Cup champions Australia and Olympic silver medallists Belgium will be waiting for them. Matthew's motto is 'anything is possible if you put the work in' which is appropriate as he is managing both his academic career with his international hockey exploits!  Good luck to Matthew and the rest of the Ireland Hockey team!
